The talented actors of Saint John of God Kerry Services are preparing to thread the boards of Siamsa Tíre again this year on Tuesday 26th and Wednesday 27th March 2019 at 8pm.

They’ll do so in their musical production of Sister and Mary Neligan of the Castleisland centre is taking on the title role.

Talent Showcase

“The show aims to provide individuals with a musical platform to showcase their acting, dancing and singing talents,” said spokesperson, Angie Kissane.

The director of the show is Jackie O’Mahony and musical director is Lauralee Curtin.

The show will also feature students from the TY year in Mounthawk School in both the dancing and chorus with St. John of God service users.

A Great Storyline

“This is a wonderful event and we look forward to great support and there’s a great story-line running through Sister.

“The story: A professional singer, Deloris Van Cartier, witnesses a murder, a murder committed by her long term ‘married’ boyfriend Curtis Jackson.
Deloris finds herself in the witness protection programme in the most unlikely place, a convent!
She struggles to adapt to austere convent life and soon she is at odds with Mother Superior.

Singing Sensation
Before long Deloris and her fellow sisters become a singing media sensation, much to the dismay of officer Eddie O’Shea
With her secret location compromised, Deloris must move on but first she must come clean to all the nuns.
Meanwhile Curtis and his boys now know where Deloris is hiding, and they make plans to get her,” Angie explained.

Tickets at €15 each are on sale from Siamsa Tíre on 066 71 23055.

Wishing Paddy all the best in this competition From all the staff and residents in Woodview/Roselodge.

The John Mitchels GAA Club held a very successful Lip Syng during the October Bank Holiday weekend raising thousands for the club’s development, but there was also a charity aspect to the event.
Each act nominated an organisation or charity to benefit if they won and in the case of eventual winners, Wrong Direction, it was St John Of God in Tralee.
