Our recent production IMPACT Armagh Train Disaster played to full houses all week with many encouraging compliments from the audience each night.
Postings on social media and comments after each performance confirmed to us that something special was staged last week.
The concerted effort by Armagh Theatre Group and JoJo's Spotlight Dance and Drama Studios over April and May really bore fruit as prolonged applause and standing ovations followed each show.
From the start of the Writers meetings in early Feb to the reading of our first draft in Abbey Lane on 10th April. Re-writes and start of rehearsals on 2nd May, then our first full dress rehearsal June 11th, prior to our 'Opening' on the 130th anniversary of the disaster, everyone gave full comittment.
Cathy Carson; ''it was glorious, well done folks. Gripping'' Mary McKenna; ''Brilliant production, well done to all involved'' Jacqueline Donnelly; ''It was fantastic..looking forward to next one'' Charlie Guy; ''..one of those experiences that will never leave me'' Karen Mooney; ''This deserves to be seen by a bigger audience at a bigger venue'' Byddi Lee (writer) '' One of the best experiences I've had in my life...
