Above is the line-up for Drama at Ennis 2021 in glór, and below are some thoughts from Finals Chairperson, Bernie Harten:
Last Sunday was a truly amazing day as we welcomed the drama family to Ennis & glór, for the order of appearance draw in the One Act Finals. So many times we wondered if this would ever happen, and finally, it became a reality! There was a palpable air of excitement & anticipation in the air and whoops and hollers as drama folk reunited after a long absence. We were reminded of what we have been missing and what we can look forward to in even greater measure this weekend.
The weather for the weekend looks quite wet, so please bring appropriate clothing as inevitably there will be queues outside glór while staff check Covid certs & ID and please do not consider travelling if you have any symptoms.
