It’s been a year in the making, but this Thursday night we’ll be opening the doors for our second annual Variety Concert.

The concert, produced by Siobhan Cody, brings together a wealth of local talent while raising funds for the continued development of the theatre.

This year the programme mixes traditional Irish music, dancing, poetry, a tribute to the men and women of 1916, a musical treat with performances from Les Miserable, choral performances and more.

And sure you can’t beat a good raffle on the night!

Siobhan popped into KCLR on Wednesday afternoon to chat to Ken McGuire (one of our MCs on the night), click play below to find out what she had to say about preparation for this year’s show.

All about Dalloway with Rebecca Vaughan

Rebecca Vaughan in Dalloway

1923: THE WAR IS OVER. While Clarissa Dalloway prepares a party in Westminster, Septimus Smith is diagnosed with shell-shock, and their memories and dreams magically intertwine with those of 15 other disparate souls, this hot blue day in June. Conjuring the hopes and regrets of middle and upper-class London, this adaptation of Virginia Woolf’s celebrated map of hearts, minds and memories offers a compellingly feminine response to the aftermath of the First World War.
