Anyone interested in getting involved in a home produced Good Friday Passion Play is invited to a meeting in the River Island Hotel on this Monday night, March 13th at 8pm.
A DVD of the passion play will be shown at the meeting. The organisers will be looking for expressions of interest from actors, actresses, singers and musicians willing to get involved in the cast ahead of the play at the Church of Saints Stephen and John on Good Friday.
Likely candidates of all ages, from this and neighbouring parishes, will all be welcome to get involved in the staging of the colourful spectacle in the ideal settings of the local parish church.
Ivy Leaf Art Centre and Kerry Drama Festival Director, Jerome Stack will take charge of the effort to have an all local cast in line for the big show.
Over the last couple of years, the Tralee based St. John’s Liturgy Drama Group travelled with costumes and props to Castleisland on Good Friday nights for their 8pm shows here and this was after their Tralee performances at 3pm.
Actors in Costume
Those shows were billed as ‘A Solemn Celebration of the Passion and Death of Christ’ – with musicians, singers and a 30 plus strong cast of actors in costume.
Getting the group out from Tralee over the last couple of years proved a master stroke for the genial PP Monsignor Dan O’Riordan.
‘Fr. Dan’ – as he is known here, is a former PP of the St. John’s Parish in Tralee. He had the inside track when it came to coaxing the talented troupe out of their natural habitat over the last couple of years.
All will be revealed at the River Island Hotel tomorrow night at 8pm.
