Nine nights of suberb stagework as Claregalway Drama Festival opens tonight

Thu, Mar 15, 2018

It’s that time of year once again when Claregalway Leisure Centre is magically transformed from a busy sports hall into an extravagant theatre, ready to showcase nine nights of spectacular drama from some of the best drama societies around the country.

The Festival Committee have been working tirelessly to complete this transformation. The groups have been rehearsing since as far back as early November to ensure only top quality drama is on display.

The Festival opens tonight (Thursday 15) with Clare group Sliabh Aughty Drama Group performing Moonglow by Kim Carney. Previous All Ireland winners Corn Mill Theatre Group return on Friday night with Waiting for Godot by the acclaimed playwright Samuel Beckett.
