As we all know I’m such a drama queen anyway, so it’s no surprise that I’ve been having so much fun recently rehearsing for the show Swings and Roundabouts. I wanted to write this post to ask anyone near or far with a special place in their heart for the Ardfinnan community to spread the word, come along, support, sing and laugh the night away with us! This show will be taking place in my home village of Ardfinnan, in the Community Hall on the 3rd and 4th of June at 8pm. Not only will this be a lovely event to see a community come together for a night of fun and entertainment, but the money raised is going towards a playground in Ardfinnan. Ardfinnan is an absolutely beautiful village and I know I would have loved a playground here when I was young. What a difference it will make, sometimes we all just need that pop of colour, a bit of company, and the sound of laughter and chatting in the air for a good pick me up! It’s great to see all the hardwork and dedication that is going into the show to make a difference in our community.
As well as the importance of this fundraiser, I am really enjoying making lots of new friends and memories. On the first night there were some familiar and some not-so familiar faces to me, but as time has gone on I always look forward to going down for chats and a good giggle. So much love for our show family! As much as I am looking forward to the actual show, I know I will miss it when it’s all over! There are so many different characters of all different ages and there is just a lovely, welcoming atmosphere there which will no doubt shine through in the performances on both nights.
I’m not going to give too much away because you can all see on the night, but let’s just say a bit of my part is a step outside of my comfort zone so I’m also facing fears! haha There is so much to look forward to and you’ll definitely leave in a great mood and probably still be laughing, I know I will be!
I honestly can’t believe how close the show is now, but I know my nerves should be okay since I’m already very familiar with that stage from Primary School shows. Although, I must say, it looks a lot smaller now that I’m (slightly) taller!
So much dedication and positivity has gone into the show so please purchase your tickets now from Burkes or Flynn’s shop! 🙂 Adult tickets are €8, child tickets are €5 and family tickets are €20.
The support would be hugely appreciated, and I may be no Kate Winslet, but a lovely, humorous, family night out and a place for our village children to play safely with their friends will definitely be worth it. We’ll be starting the bank holiday weekend with a bang guys, let’s all come together to get the ball rolling on the Playground! Keep up to date with us on Facebook here
and we’ll see you all there for a night of fun and entertainment!
