A weekend of Awards for ‘The Importance of Being Earnest’

IMG-20190310-WA0011The weekend proved to be very successful for our production of ‘The Importance of Being Earnest’, with results announced from our first three festivals. We’re delighted to report that the show placed in all three, winning First Place & Best Production in Castleblayney, and Third Place in both Kiltyclogher and Tubbercurry. In addition, there were several awards and nominations in the acting categories, as well as for light, sound and costumes.
