For many years here in Thurles, the youth musical theatre group, ‘Phoenix Productions’ have been bringing, annually to the stage, performances par excellence.
As the years have progressed, many of these young performers have continued in their great love of theatre and are regularly invited to join other musical groups and societies nationally, because of their acknowledged talents.
To ensure and encourage that such talent is continued on into the future, Phoenix Productions are holding a fund raising coffee morning in the Source Library on tomorrow (Saturday November 19th), from 10.00am – 1.00pm.
So do take a well deserved break from your busy shopping and pop into Thurles Library for a relaxing cup of coffee, a piece of delicious home-made cake and of course ‘that inevitable good humoured banter’. All support will be greatly appreciated.
Thank you for the Music.
