The drama group are busily rehearsing the newly written play “There goes the bell” every Monday in the SMA Hall from 4 to 6 p.m. November 7th and 8th, 2017  are the new dates for performance of the play in the CAT club.

The emphasis is on fun and participation and each rehearsal provides plenty of opportunity for a good laugh while learning a lot about script writing, acting and stage  production from the very experienced and talented Helen Hallissey. Watch this space for updates on progress and make sure that  November the 7th and 8th are marked on your calendar.
