This term in Bunscoil Rinn an Chabhlaigh, 15 third class children participated in a very magical after-school club called the “Musical Theatre Club 2019”. The boys and girls enjoyed their experience, developed their performing confidence and displayed superb musical theatrical skills!

Over a five-week period, the children learned various singing techniques and engaged with a range of renowned musicals. The children practiced correct performance posture, physical warm-ups, breathing exercises, vocal exercises and curwen hand signs.  They also participated in improvisation activities, collaborative choreography and together, selected suitable costumes for action songs.

The children explored the following songs and musicals:

  • “Do Re Mi” from the musical ‘The Sound of Music’
  • “Wouldn’t it be Loverly” from the musical ‘My Fair Lady’
  • “A Spoonful of Sugar” from the musical ‘Mary Poppins’
  • “Colours of the Wind’ from the musical ‘Pocahontas’

A live performance at our school’s June Assembly consisted of the group performing two musical theatre songs for an extensive audience, accompanied by Mr. Carney on the piano and conducted by Ms. O’Donnell. Ms. Flannery presented each member of the club with a ‘Star Performer Certificate’. Well done to the boys and girls for their huge dedication, uplifting enthusiasm and sharing their amazing musical talent with us all!🎶
