Budding young actors and actresses from Cox’s Demesne After School Groups showed off their acting skills in a highly entertaining performance of ‘Finding Cinderella’ at An Tain Theatre, Dundalk last week.

“Cox’s Demesne After School Service is very grateful for the funding received from the International Fund for Ireland”, said Clodagh O’Mahony, Manager, Cox’s Demesne Youth Community Project.

“Months of drama workshops culminated in the showing of our play ‘Finding Cinderella’ and it was a marvellous experience for them.

“Their confidence and self-esteem was boosted and many new skills learned.

A big thank you to all involved for all their support, not forgetting Castletown Girls School and De La Salle Primary at which eight of the children attend, Maeve Gormley our drama facilitator for her patience and drive, to Claire Duffy and the after school staff and last but not least our fantastic budding actors and actresses.”

The play was the culmination of a six month project funded by the International Fund for Ireland, where 30 young people aged 6-13 years attended drama workshops.
