Lislea Drama: Results

There were shocks a-plenty for the home side when Kathleen Barrington announced the results of the Amateur Drama Festival (confined) at Lislea on Saturday night.

Biggest of these was the failure of the home side to lift a single major award.  Indeed it was apparently ranked sixth out of seven entries.   Will heads roll ?

Here are the results in detail:

Best Lighting                            Kevin McAvoy    Playboy of the Western World
Best Set design                        Ger Ryan Playboy o
f the Western World
Audience award                        Stage Fright, Omagh
Best Moment of Theatre             Denis Ross, Philadephia Here I Come
Most Challenging Play                 Liam Daly   Portia Coughlan
Adjudicator award                     Rodolpho:  Dermot McAleer.  Pomeroy
Best producer                           John Goodfellow, Pomeroy
Best Stage Management,            Orla Murphy, Kathleen O’Hare, Brian Fitzpatrick, Lislea
Best Actor                               Plunkett Nugent, Pomeroy
Best Actress                            Beatrice McNulty : Cass in “Loves of Cass Maguire”
Best supporting Actor                      Michael Dunbar  Playboy
Best Supporting Actress             Shanna Gourley Pomeroy
Runners Up                              Stage Fright  Omagh
Best Overall                             Pomeroy

Some relief might be felt at the results from Castleblaney Co Monaghan where Lislea opened their run.

There Aidan McpArland won Best Actor for his role as Charley The Gent (Johnny Friendly’s right-hand man) in “On The Waterfront”.

The excellent Walter Bradley took the gong for Best Supporting Actor.

Overall the team came a very respectable Second Place.                                                                                                                    

But qualification for the All-Ireland Finals is certainly now in doubt!

NB Brian Fitzpatrick of Lislea’s successful stage management will shortly be recounting here his experiences from last year’s very successful Lislea run with Brian Friel’s Freedom of the City.
