“Breaking the Habit”, a musical performed by the Transition Year students, will hit the stage in Loreto on Tuesday 19th and Thursday 21st March at 8pm sharp, and you won’t want to miss it…
Directed by Ms Claire McGlade, with musical direction by Ms Carmel Fay and a cast comprising 48 TY students, “Breaking the Habit” promises witty comedy, song, dance and fast-paced dialogue. The plot, loosely based on the “Love/Hate” series, will entertain audiences with an exciting storyline and compelling characters.
The musical follows the journey of its central character, Dolly, a colourful club singer and dancer. With a boyfriend who is a criminal underworld figure, Dolly has mixed with some unsavoury people on the margins of society. But now the fraud squad from Dublin is hot on the heels of Dolly’s boyfriend and his gangster cronies. Dolly finds refuge in St. Mary’s Convent in Cavan, worlds apart from the mean streets of Dublin’s gangland. The nuns of St. Mary’s welcome their new “sister” but soon realise that Dolly is not the conventional nun they expected…
Dolly’s efforts to fit in in this enclosed, unfamiliar world, along with performances of well-known songs from the likes of Queen and Sister Sledge, will ensure this will be a musical to remember. The cast and crew, along with their teachers, are excited to finally see their months of rehearsal come to fruition on Tuesday and Thursday night.
So get yourself a ticket and look forward to a thrilling night of fierce songs, flamboyant characters and funky moves.”Breaking the Habit” will have you breaking out in the aisles!
