The Clonmore Players are set to entertain the crowds once more with upcoming production of Wedding Fever. The group previously enthralled audiences with their popular “Wake in the West” in 2009 and “Widow’s Paradise” in 2011, it seems that ‘W’ is a much favoured initial of the group and they hope that this current offering will ‘Wow’ and ‘Win’ the hearts of all who come to see it. Another written by the popular Sam Cree, the play is set in 60s Belfast and tells the story of a family in the run up to the daughter’s wedding in the middle of a strike. There are some very strong and comical characters portrayed by many cast members from the previous two productions and a few new faces. Cast members: Caroline McKee as Sadie, Paul Grimley as Alec, Niamh Mcbennett as Myra, James Grimley as Dennis, Roisin McAliskey as Emily, Stephen Donaghy as Willie, Suzanne Mc Kenna as Mary, John Gerard Grimley as Patrick, Rosaleen Taylor as Georgina, Hugh McAlinden as Hirum, Sarah Louise Gordon as Kathleen, Ruairi Cunningham as Davy
Directed once more by Gerard Cunningham, the group has been hard at work over the past two months rehearsing in Clonmore Hall, the stage for this new production. Gerard says “We have been producing plays every other year since 2009 as a novel fundraiser for the local football club and other groups here in the Clonmore area. It is an opportunity to show off local talent but moreso to bring a bit of laughter and enjoyment particularly in the more dreary and wintery months of the year. We hope that Wedding Fever will be as well supported and received as our previous plays”.
The play takes place on Friday 8th, Saturday 9th and Sunday 10th of March in Clonmore Hall with doors opening at 7.30 and the play starting at 8pm sharp. Tickets are £10 with concession tickets for under 16s and OAPs on Friday night only of £5, tickets available from any committee member of Clonmore GFC or by calling the box office on 07793 227297.
