Can you help?

The Ballycogley Players drama group are looking for someone to lend them a trombone for one of their 1 act plays during the Wexford Opera Festival. Contact Trish 087 6733575.


A Night of Comedy

As yet another Wexford Festival Opera season draws ever closer the fringe events associated with this festival would not be complete without the Ballycogley Players. This is the largest annual fringe festival in the South East and it celebrates its 60th birthday this year and The Ballycogley Players are proud and honoured to have contributed to this festival for many years past. This year will be no different with the group performing three very funny and entertaining one act plays on October 25th, 26th and 27th in St Michaels SVPH Hall, Thomas St (opposite CBS school). Admission is ten euro and the curtain will be drawn at 8pm. The group will present “Parental Guidance” by Eamonn Kelly, “The Try” a new play by local man Greg Brannock and “The Fat Lady Sings” by David Tristram. A night with the ” Players” wont get rid of your troubles but will certainly help you forget about them for a couple of hours.

We will also host a fortnight-long exhibition by the renowned maritime artist, Brian Cleare as part of the Wexford Festival Fringe 2012.
