‘Alias Cinderella’ takes second, Jack Leonard receives Best Acting award in Donegal Youth Theatre Festival

Congratulations to the cast and crew of TY Drama production ‘Alias Cinderella’, directed by Miss Garvey, which came second in the Donegal Youth Drama Festival in Ballybofey last night. Jack Leonard won a Best Acting trophy for his portrayal of Justin Thyme in the show, and the show also received a cert for Costume. Adjudicator Maura Logue commented that it was the clear audience favourite as it entertained everyone on the first night of the competition. Other awards received on the night by Coláiste Cholmcille were the award for Counterpoint Acting by Chloe Connolly and Chloe Gallagher as Jodie and Fran in ‘Asking For It’, and the awards for Best Script Choice and Best Set & Costume for ‘Asking For It’, directed by Mr. Beattie. Overall, the festival was a great success for Coláiste Cholmcille, and for Donegal youth drama, with seven acts taking part this year. The competition was won by Royal and Prior, Raphoe, with their excellent production of ‘Blood Brothers’ by third year students.
