After a break of more than thirty years, ‘Guys and Dolls’ will make a return to Dominican College later this month.

With a talented cast and crew of more than 200 students, Dominican is proud to present its latest school musical, which was chosen in honour of former teacher, Mrs Rosaleen Corrigan, who passed away earlier this year.

Kathy Walsh. Head of Drama explained, “Rosaleen Corrigan was an inspirational Head of Drama who has left a proud legacy and tradition within this school- a legacy reflected in a highly respected Drama Department and a school which continues to cherish and nurture the musical and dramatic talents of its pupils.

“This truly is a whole school enterprise which harnesses the skills of staff not only in directing and choreographing but also working in set design, set construction costume and make up. Taking part in a school show of this magnitude develops confidence in our pupils, builds problem solving skills and collaborative skills as everyone works towards a goal. Pupils and staff are working together to develop a sense of achievement as a school.”

The Thursday night production will be a special gala evening with proceeds being donated to the NI Chest Heart and Stroke charity as chosen by Rosaleen’s family.

Staff and students have been rehearsing busily since early September. The production runs from Wednesday November 25th to Friday November 27th at in the school assembly hall. Tickets are available from the school office (0287083 2715/ 2525) and are priced at £9.00 adults, £7.00 concession. A family ticket for costs £27.00.
