Living Scenes Showcase at NUIG

Living Scenes Showcase Event 2010 2011, took place last night (Wednesday, 25th May) at 6.30p.m.) in the recently refurbished Bailey Allen Hall in NUI Galway. The event was open to all those who had participated in the Living Scenes programmes nationwide and to those who were interested in learning more about the programme.

The showcase started at 6.30pm and finished just after 9.15pm with 10 groups from around the country participating in the show through a diverse range of performances ranging from plays to musical performances, a DVD recording of puppetry version of the Late Late Show, a re-enactment of a certain royal wedding and even chaos at a funeral!!

It was certainly not an evening to be missed and goes to show just what can be achieved at a little imagination and intergenerational cooperation.

Premiere of 'The Miller's House'

The world premiere of our original play ‘The Millers House’ took place this afternoon to rapturous applause from the audience. The original play, written by the Living Scenes group, premiered earlier today (Wednesday, 18th May) at 2.30pm during the Social Club. The cast consists of members of the Living Scenes Intergenerational project, with each member of the group playing a vital role in the play.

The play revolves around one day – fictionalised – day in the lives of a family who did actually live in mill, back in the early 1800’s. This mill, of course is now home to Croí na Gaillimhe! The family at the centre of all the action are the Miller family and the keystone is Mrs. Miller (played by our very own Sr. Nora!), who struggles to keep her five sons under control as they discuss love and life in Galway.

Also, the Living Scenes Showcase Event 2010 – 2011, takes place on Wednesday, 25th May at 6.30p.m. in the Bailey Allen Hall in NUI Galway. All who participated in the program and those who are interested are invited to attend.

We hope that you can join us for this an evening that promises to be full of excitement and entertainment!

World Premiere of 'The Millers House'

The world premiere of our original play ‘The Millers House’ will take place next Wednesday afternoon, 18th May at 2.30pm during the Social Club. Written, directed by and starring our Living Scenes cast, ‘The Millers House’ is a wholly original play. The running time of time is 10 minutes.

During the course of the Living Scenes project, the group researched the history of the building and based on their findings, they began to imagine the characters of those who lived here. The result is a humorous 10 minute play about a day in the life of the Miller family and focuses on Mrs. Miller (played by our very own Sr. Nora!) and her five sons. Don’t miss the fun and excitement next week!
