Cast announced for Fiesta

We have finalised our main cast for Fiesta, our Earagail Arts Festival show!

In the lead roles are Sorcha Shanahan, Orla McGranaghan, Joseph Gallagher and Jason Daly. Playing other roles in the ensemble are Eoghan Mac Giolla Bhrighde, Fionn Robinson, John Ruddy, Valerie Bryce, Sinead Gallagher and Margaret Hannon.

In addition we will have a supporting cast of 16 people who have been attending weekly workshops with director Sean Donegan and choreographer Aoife Toner since April.

Fiesta is a celebration of the dancers, the chancers and the lovers who graced the Fiesta Ballroom, Letterkenny – the famous dancehall venue that formed a hugely important part of the social history of Donegal and the wider North West region. While the ballroom  has been closed for many years, the building itself still exists and trades as Cable and Accessories on the Port Rd.

Fiesta is a new drama commission co-produced by Earagail Arts Festival, An Grianán Theatre and Donegal County Council Arts Office and supported by the Arts Council of Ireland, Failte Ireland and Donegal County Council.

Performance Dates: Sat 12 to Mon 14 July at 8pm. Tickets €15/€12. Book now!
