SHOW Scoil Eoin Báiste an Obair back on stage for the first time since the pandemic

Scoil Eoin Báiste an Obair are currently busy rehearsing and putting the finishing touches to their forthcoming musical extravaganza 'The Wizard of Oz' which takes place in the St Vincent De Paul Theatre in Kells on 8th and 9th June..

This is the school’s first production back on stage since the Pandemic and promises to be a show with a difference. Not only are the young thespians featuring but so too are the teachers in what will be a groundbreaking first time student-teacher collaboration for a primary school musical in Co Meath.

Watch out for the side splitting performances of Mr Paddy O’Reilly as Tinman, Ms Caitriona Flannelly as Scarecrow and the hilarious Mr Keith Dunne as the Cowardly Lion.

Senior Infant teacher, Ms Serena O’Reilly, plays the lead road as Dorothy and with her classically trained singing voice, she is sure to wow the audiences with her renditions from the famous musical as well as a few modern and old school tunes.

The excellent Ms Anne-Marie McKenna, school principal plays a frighteningly realistic Wicked Witch of the West which is sure to have even the older members of the audience shaking in their seats.

Newcomers to the school staff this year, Ms Eimíle Traynor and Ms Niamh Kellett give wonderful performances in their roles as Glinda, The Good Witch and the Wizard of Oz respectively.

Kells Musical and Dramatical Society director, John Grant, has lent a helping hand with his expert guidance and has been pleasantly surprised by the rehearsals and has indicated that the novelty pairing of students and teachers promises to make this a memorable show and one certainly not to be missed.

The first show will be staged on Thursday the 8th June at 11am with the second show on Friday the 9th June at 7.30pm. Tickets are on sale now from the school office at 046 9052000.
