School Musical

Each year, Transition Year students perform a school musical in Dunamaise Theatre, with the guidance and help of Ms. Karen Hackett and her team. Students enjoy the chance to try the acting skills while also working as a team to produce an entertaining show filled with song, dance and laughter.

This year, Scoil Chríost Rí are performing Sister Act The Musical in January 2023. This show promises to be a colourful, fun and lively show for all the family to enjoy. The songs are catchy, dance numbers are exciting as we follow the life of Deloris. Deloris goes undercover in a convent after witnessing a crime. Deloris brings new life and confidence to the sisters while making new memories and friends along the way. Join Deloris, Monsignor O’Hara, Mother Superior and all the sisters of The Queen of Angels Choir as they bring the fun into singing and keep Deloris out of danger.

Every year, each TY form is given their own dance to perform for the musical. Each Thursday, musical practice takes place with our choreographer, followed by two hours practice with our our director and main cast.

Our Director appoints a TY student to the role of Assistant Director. A lot of hard work is done by our Assistant Director including looking after everything behind the scenes, the costumes, the props, making sure all the girls know their lines and casting extras for scenes.

Our TY students are trying hard to make this musical memorable for us while also making sure that it is enjoyable for our audience. It takes a lot of time to get scenes and songs to perfection while adding that bit of humour. So, we’re hoping that you’ll join us for a show that promises to be full of entertainment.
