The stand out performance came from Bilkees Saidi who demonstrated a poise and stage presence far beyond her years. I think this is not the first we will hear of this young lady. I laughed out loud every night at Caitlin Hamilton Jones whose comic timing as Moon Faced Martin was pretty impeccable and quite a revelation. Siobhan Sexton was sweet and lovely as debutant Hope Harcourt and she wore those dresses so well. Madeline Arkins Heavenly Hop was one of my favourite numbers and the chorus including Alice Foley performed their dance routines with aplomb . It is quite an achievemnent for a school to have mounted 25 continuous years of musical and I am glad to have been associated with 4 of the last 5 years with MDs Carmel Griffin and Michael Hennessy.
