We spoke with Kilcoole’s bould CCA Players over at Coláiste Chraobh Abhann only a few weeks back, as they rehearsed their upcoming take on Steinbeck’s Of Mice And Men, and, bejiggers, their production is already winning awards.
Which, given that it’s not due to debut at The Castle Inn until March 20th, is some achievement.
It was in the Senior Post-Primary category that the CCA Players entered Of Mice And Men into The Arklow Music And Theatre Festival, and, eh, they did pretty darn well.
Erika Bellamy (playing Curkey’s wife) won Best Actress, Ryan Brennan (Lennie) won Best Supporting Actor, and Reme Atioyta (Crooks) took home Best Actor.
The production also won Best Direction (that will beSeán Ó Suilleabháin and Sharon Nolan), plus – drum roll, please – Best Overall Play.
So, if you want to see what all the fuss is about, tickets for The CCA Players’ Of Mice And Men at Newcastle’s Castle Inn are just €5, and the production runs from Wednesday, March 20th, to Friday 22nd.
You can grab your tickets from Coláiste Chraobh Abhann or The Castle Inn, or you can firstname.lastname@example.org. In the meantime, you can check out our February 11th interview with the Players here.
