Mountrath Community School students got into costume in recent weeks to launch their first ever school Transition Year musical.

'Grease the Musical' was launched to a packed school gym on Friday morning, January 17. The entire school community took part in a 'Dress Up Day' as part of the launch and there were Pink Ladies and Thunderbirds roaming the school corridors.

Auditions began in September to choose the cast of characters, under the direction of Paul Norton (show director), Mr Aiden Feeley (musical director) and Julianne McNamara (choreographer). Ms Evelyn Geary is a musical producer. More below picture.

Mountrath CS Principal Ms Siobhán McCarthy opened proceedings by welcoming the school community and congratulating the Transition Year students on their work to date.

The group then performed a sneak peak to their show with some group dancing and singing. As well as a couple of solo performances of the show's top musical numbers. More below picture.

The community is excited and looking forward to Grease the Musical which will take place on Thursday 5th, Friday 6th and Saturday 7th March 2020 in St Philomena's Hall, Mountrath.

Tickets are available from MCS office (0578741080) and are priced at €15 per adult & €10 per child.
