As we wrap up for Christmas…. as mentioned previously, Hana Kelly age 13 is currently playing the central role in 'Noel' in Wexford Opera House and the last show is today - last chance to see it!
In the meantime Siomha Barron age 12, is in final rehearsals for 'Bugsy Malone' in the N.C.H Dec 27- Jan 3rd with Festival Productions. Having worked so long in Theatre schools and Musical Theatre, I want to say Congrats to the girls, and acknowledge their wonderful parents, there is a lot of running around parents do to support their talented children and make their dreams come true.
Congratulations also to Mark Lavery who landed the role of Romeo in ‘Romeo and Juliet’ in The Mill Theatre, performances from Feb 6th- March 3rd, and this is right off the back of shooting a couple of eps. of VIKINGS in Nov and Dec.... Mark is on a roll!!
And finally...Well done to the super talented comedian/actor and gentleman, that is John Colleary - John landed two roles this week, an Energy Ad and a role in 'The Man Who Invented Christmas' both shooting in January.
As the song says… ''and so this is Christmas and what have you done''… Actually, we’ve done a lot this year. As we wrap up 2016, I think we can look back with pride at our successes.
Success has comes in many forms for actors in the agency, for some, it was TVs roles in dramas and stings, or Film, short and features, Theatre, or the Ads.
For others, the auditions didn’t go their way, but, that's a learning curve, and they live to fight another day, and for others still, it was a new partner, an engagement, a marriage, a new baby, a new home, one step out of depression, one step forward when hearts were broken, just learning how to move on with life because nothing stays the same. But knowing always... you had a clap on the back here for a job well done from me and your fellow actors, or, a shoulder to cry on, or a hand to hold on a bad day. Real caring friendships have grown in this agency amongst you all, and..... that is priceless!
To everyone in Castannettenow, I hope you all have a wonderful happy and safe Christmas and that 2017 brings all that is good for you and your families.
