One Act Drama Festival

12 to 14 February 2019

The thirty-first St Andrew's College One Act Drama Festival took place from 12 to 14 February.  Our own production, Scenes from Family Life by Mark Ravenhall, was performed on the opening night.  With a cast of 23, ably assisted by the student Production Team, it was a powerful performance of a very difficult play.  CBS Kilkenny also performed on Tuesday night with St Gerard's School and Blackrock College performing on Wednesday.  The High School and Newpark Comprehensive School productions took place on Thursday.

We would like to thank Mr Paddy O'Dwyer for adjudicating this year's festival.
