In a world where everyone seems to be glued to a mobile phone, computer or laptop - why not take the opportunity to wander back down ‘memory lane’ to a time when story-telling, songs and recitations were the order of the day.
And, that’s exactly what the Highfield Players invite you to do next Tuesday, June 16th in Coleraine’s Riverside Theatre at 8pm.
Building on the success of last year’s production of Brian Friel’s ‘Dancing at Lughnasa’ , the Highfield Players are looking forward to entertaining you with a night of chat, craic, songs and sketches.
Director Billy Bones has assembled a cast with a great background in entertaining.
Mother and daughter Angela McClure and Charlene Stirling are welcome new additions to the Highfield Players.
Hailing from Kilraughts, Angela has sung semi-professionally and is also a member of Armoy WI choir and her church choir. She has a keen interest in singing and drama and is well known from appearances in concerts across the province.
Daughter Charlene has been playing piano since the age of nine. She has perfomed in various music festivals and competitions and has appeared in the Waterfront Hall in Belfast as part of Ballymoney High School’s award-winning ‘My Fair Lady’.
Fresh from an appearance in the Millennium Forum with her local Young Farmers Club, Charlene also has achieved grade 7 in singing.
Musical director and accompanist for the evening will be Brian Simpson, a retired languages teacher who taught in Coleraine Boys’ Secondary, Dunluce and Garvagh High School. They are all joined on stage by Coleraine husband and wife team Robert and Jenny Creelman who are well-known in Young Farmers Club circles and Harry Stinson who has performed with Portrush Music Society and Ballywillan Drama Group in the Riverside.
The final name in the line-up is Liam Toal, a founding member of ‘The Columbians’ - a musical group which played gigs and dances all over Northern Ireland. Tickets are now available for ‘Sit Back and Enjoy the Craic’. Check out the Riverside Theatre’s website www.riversidetheatre.org.uk or call 028 70 123 123 to book.
