After six weeks of training, and lots of hours of extra rehearsals, the Moorefield GAA Broadway Challenge took to the stage recently.
A huge crowd of 1,100 people were treated to a highly entertaining night with over 100 club members, supporters and friends taking part in the event.
There were ten live Broadway melodies performed by club players, members, supporters and friends from teams such as Sister Act and Hairspray, team Mamma Mia, Thriller, We Will Rock You, team Jersey Boys, team Motown, Saturday Night Fever and The Blues Brother's Car Pool, and team Grease.
MC for the night was Killian Whelan and afterwards there was a DJ and BBQ in the Festival Marquee.
Every show was outstanding with all teams getting high scores from the five judges, Cian O’Neill, Fiona O’Loughlin, Katie Walsh, Robbie McNamara and Leah Moran. Sos Dowling’s team Jersey Boys, David Whyte’s team Grease and Philie Wolfe’s team Motown all received top marks from the judges but on the night Mark Murnaghan’s team Thriller were crowned the Broadway Challenge Champions after the public vote.
The atmosphere on the night was absolutely fantastic and the audience were also treated to an excellent performance by the Leah Moran Stage School.
