At last we have reach the point were we can open again and start to bring the theatre back to life again. Our first show post lockdown in an original play, Enough to Wake the Dead, written by Cathrine McKernan Doris formerly from Coalisland but who has been living with her family in Australia since 1998. Catherine had been a member of Craic before she left and had appeared in a number of our early musicals. Enough to Wake the Dead was performed in Townville Australia earlier this year but this is it’s Irish premiere.
The Craic Youth Theatre is currently rehearsing the annual Pantomime which this year is “Ever After” The Panto was like all performances cancelled due to the pandemic and the members of the Youth Theatre are chomping at the bit to get back on stage and display their talents once again.
Following our award winning musical “Little Shop of Horrors” (2019) the Craic Players are in rehearsal for the Dolly Parton musical “9 to 5” The director Sean O’Neill has assembled a stellar cast for this show which will run for two weeks 24th – 27th February and 3rd – 6th March. This is a show not to be missed!!
