Anchors away for Pirates of the Curry Bean in Kildare town

Amy, Molly, and Abigail as ‘Natives’ Caoimhe and Tori as ‘Pirates’

St Brigid’s Primary School in Kildare Town will be staging it’s first ever musical called Pirates of the Curry Bean later this month.

This musical is especially adapted for primary school children and will take place in the CMWS hall in Kildare Town on Thursday November 24, Friday 25 and Saturday 26 next.

It features over 60 children from 5th and 6th class. Rehearsals have been taking place since early September. The Directors of the show are both teachers from the school, Jane Boyle and Colin O’Neill. Many more teachers are involved in the singing, dancing, props and stage design.

“Anchors away and set sail for swashbuckling pirate adventure on the high seas in this piratical musical that’s sure to shake your booty,” said PRO and teacher Suise Waters.

Young twins Jack and Liza Periwinkle yearn for adventure, so imagine their joy at discovering a real life treasure map! But when the infamous Redbeard and his pungent Pirates of the Curry Bean steal the map and kidnap their mother, the race is on to rescue her, reclaim the map and find the treasure.

With colourful characters, sparkling songs and a witty script as sharp as a cutlass, this show is described as dripping with piratical style.

“The school is very busy preparing for the show and the cast are looking forward to showcasing their talent, hard work and performance to the public at the end of November,”she added. “A fun filled entertaining evening for our community is guaranteed.” Tickets on sale from the School (521799) and Aras Bhríde (045-5213 52).

Show times 7.30pm each evening and matinee on Saturday 3pm
