Wednesday 15th of October

Local drama group, Compántas Lir, will take to the stage for their annual Autumn Theatre this October. The group has been in existence for over thirty years, entertaining audiences locally and nationally. Each year brings about many new projects and this year the Autumn Theatre is one of three major productions in the pipeline for the coming months. They will compete this November in the one-act festival circuit with the play Nine by Jane Shephard, directed by Caoimhe McLaughlin. In the new year they will be busy rehearsing for the full-act festival circuit with The Memory of Water by Shelagh Stephenson, directed by Dermot Hession.

Carnmore Community Centre will be given the ultimate make-over in the coming weeks to create the intimate setting of the Autumn Theatre. Two comedies will be staged, both by the the well known playwright, Jimmy Keary. A Night to Remember and Wedding Night Blues are two hilarious short plays and audiences will be encouraged to sit back, relax and thoroughly enjoy the laughs. Between the productios tea/coffee/wine and nibbles will be served. These productions are a great way for new and aspiring actors to flex their stage muscles, and of welcoming new members into the group. This year Compántas Lir welcome Tom Jinks to the stage along with many other familiar faces, some of whom have not been on the Carnmore Stage in a number of years.

The Autumn Theatre will run from Wednesday 15th–Saturday 18th of October in Carnmore Community Centre at 8:30pm. Tickets are available at 0851154715 or from any member of the group. Group rates are available.
