'Larking Around Through The Years' set for Kildare town stage

Local art, community and culture group LARK, launched their latest show Larkin Through The Years on Sunday last in Aras Bhride .

The launch was very well attended, with great support from the local community. Paul Heffernan, chairperson of LARK, addressed the crowd and outlined the forthcoming show.

The show will be performed in the CMWS hall, on February 10 to 13 and tickets are available at Aras Bhride and the Heritage Centre in Kildare.

“The cast this year includes about 50 children and 25 adults,” said Paul Heffernan.

“They will be performing a selection of extracts from their shows over the last 10 years.”

There will also be two short plays performed in rhyming verse and the show is sure to include many well known and favourite songs.

The director this year is local man Liam Quinlivan, musical director is Lisa Nagle and choreographer is Shannon O’Reilly.

“LARK is a voluntary organisation and depends on the generosity of their sponsors, advertisers and patrons,” he added.

Paul expressed thanks to Kildare Farm Foods as their main sponsor, but also for all their help behind the scenes in organising events and the shows.

“This year’s show features extracts from our shows over the last 10 years.”

LARK was set up six years ago to showcase the talents of people from Kildare Town. The group has embarked on musicals, Christmas Variety shows, street pageants and photographic exhibitions.
