St. Vincent’s Convent Primary School shortlisted in this year’s Bord Gáis Energy Student Theatre Awards

Awards ceremony to take place on 5 May 2016

St. Vincent’s Convent Primary School has been shortlisted in the Best Female Performance in a Leading Role and Best Overall School Musical categories for its production of Getting to Know the Sound of Music.

A group of children will now travel to a special awards ceremony at the Bord Gáis Energy Theatre on Thursday, 5 May 2016 where the winners will be announced. RTÉ Two Tube presenters Stephen Byrne and Bláthnaid Treacy will host the event, with a special guest performance yet to be announced. We are so proud of all of the children that were involved in our production of Getting to Know the Sound of Music, which was originally staged in our school hall in February 2015, to rapturous praise from parents, staff and the entire school community. 

The highly successful awards were set up by Bord Gáis Energy to recognise and reward participation in drama in schools. This year, 2,888 entries were received from 351 primary and secondary schools across Ireland. St. Vincent's  is lucky enough to be one of four schools chosen to perform on the stage of the theatre, an opportunity that many professional actors would love to be given.

This year’s judging panel comprised actress Amy Huberman; playwright Marina Carr; Strictly Come Dancing star Tristan MacManus; author Sarah Webb; set and costume designer Maree Kearns; Bord Gáis Energy Theatre manager Stephen Faloon and Bord Gáis Energy communications manager, Irene Gowing.

Commenting on the shortlist Irene Gowing, communications manager for Bord Gáis Energy said: “The standard of this year’s entries was exceptional, showing the wealth of talent in schools across the country, and I’ve no doubt there are many stars in the making. For the judges, this meant a really tough job narrowing down our shortlist. I would like to thank all teachers and students in Cork who entered, as well as the parents who support them. Congratulations to all the shortlisted Cork schools and students and we look forward to the welcoming you all at the awards ceremony on the 5 May.”

The cast and choir of our upcoming production of Rodgers and Hammerstein's The Sound of Music were recently
visited at rehearsal by Elmarie Mawe, presenter of The Arts House radio programme every Sunday morning on Cork's 96FM.   Elmarie, who is herself a past pupil of St. Vincent's, came to interview the children about their experiences of preparing for the musical, and to hear a snippet of the wonderful music that is to come on the performance nights of Wednesday 11th and Thursday 12th February, 2015. The children sang beautifully and recorded enthusiastic and articulate comments on their characters as well as the rehearsal process and their hopes for the future. To catch a podcast of the full radio interview, please click the link below.

Huge thanks to Elmarie for coming to visit us, and for having us on her show.

The Sound of Music at St. Vincent's!

posted Feb 8, 2015, 4:47 PM by St Vincent's Convent National School Cork

The countdown is almost done, the wait is nearly over..... just 2 more sleeps until the children of St. Vincent's tread the boards in our school production of Rodgers and Hammerstein's The Sound of Music. After months of rehearsing, sewing, building, advertising and much more, we are ready. The talented children of our school have been so conscientious, excited and hard working throughout all of our musical preparations. It has been a wonderful experience for all involved, and the children have been a joy to work with. The halls are buzzing with music, laughter and anticipation of our "opening night".  We begin our run with a matinee performance on Wednesday the 11th February at 12.30 pm, followed by two evening performances on Wednesday the 11th and Thursday 12th February, both at 7.30pm. The evening performances are now SOLD OUT! Limited tickets may be available for the matinee performance. For details contact the school office. 

Sound of Music rehearsals

There will also  be a raffle at each performance, with fantastic prizes to be won. An evening certainly not to be missed!
