Exciting Drama News for Fenagh
It is exciting and wonderful news for our community that , after a lapse of more than fifty years , Fenagh Drama Troupe has been reformed , and rehearsals are well on the way to staging Jimmy Keary’s outrageously and hilariously funny 3-Act Comedy Play , “ The Maiden Aunt “. Fenagh had an outstanding drama troupe , each year staging their play in Lent , when , at that time,  public dances were not allowed during the six weeks of Lent . The bands were silent . So the drama troupes,  in almost every rural parish, were ready to  bring wonderful drama entertainment to the parish halls during the six weeks of Lent . The troupes staged their play in the local hall , and then set out to neighbouring parish halls to bring enjoyment to appreciative audiences . There are some who still recall the great Fenagh productions of the 1940s and early 1950s . The actors were household names in the parish , and also in adjoining parishes , proudly presenting such plays as , “ The Young Fellow “, “ A Damsel from Dublin “ , “ Banns and Plans “ , “ Wigs on the Green “ , “ The Men in Possession “ , and “ The Rale Mc Coy “ . In the early 1960s there was a short revival with productions of “ Troubled Bachelors “ and “ An old Acquaintance “.With such an illustrious background of drama in the parish it is truly exciting that the drama troupe has been reformed . The great news , also , is that the production team has unearthed outstanding acting talent , many of whom were involved when Fenagh GAA Club won the Novelty Act in the All Ireland Final of Senior Scor, some years back .So mark the dates, Friday, 2nd and Saturday , 3rd March , when this talented Fenagh Drama Troupe will have audiences rolling with laughter in our beautiful and comfortable Fenagh Community Centre . Appropriately the first productions are in Lent !
