“What better way is there to forget the winter weather for a few hours as you sit back in the company of friends and family and enjoy an evening’s theatrical entertainment? asked group PRO, Siobhán O’Connor as she spread the news of the production.
“Set in the 1970’s this is a romantic comedy which is guaranteed to bring a smile to your face. Alison Murchision is not usually the sort of girl one would visualize as a heroine, but Uncle Frank decides to make her one by entering her as a prospective candidate for a Wedding of the Year competition – selecting a designer to create her wedding dress even before he has found her a suitable husband. However, the best laid plans etc..,” said Siobhán.
The cast includes: Kay Dowling, Catherine Leahy, Maurice O’Connell, Anthony Curran and Tom O’Sullivan. This play also sees the return of Amanda Mannix, Mick Bolger, Ita O’Brien and Siobhán O’Connor along with new comer to the stage, Annette Scanlan.
