Each year our TY students have the option of competing in the National Transition Year Drama Festival in the Briery Gap Macroom. Participation in the Drama festival encourages students to develop an appreciation for the performing arts while discovering their own individual creative gifts and strengths. They have an opportunity to be adventurous in all aspects and disciplines of drama and stage performance, i.e. organising, acting, lighting, set design, costuming, make-up and most of all, team work.
In keeping with the philosophy of TY and Secondary School programming these festivals are a learning-led rather than exam-driven venture.
Mr. Richie Hayes is the co-operating teacher for TY Drama.
For 2021/22 our entry is ’10 Ways to Survive the End of the World’ by Don Zoldis
The preliminary rounds for the festival takes place in the Palace Theatre, Fermoy, Co. Cork on 17 February 2022.
