Congratulations to The Convent of Mercy who won in the "Best Musical Number" Category at the Bord Gais Energy Student Theatre awards 2017. This is the fourth year of the successful Awards which were set up to recognise and reward participation in the dramatics arts in Irish schools. Music, song, drama and dance are an integral part of cultural life in the Convent of Mercy. Our latest production, Disney’s “Beauty and the Beast” and the performance of “Be our Guest” has won in the Best Musical Number category. The girls accompanied by Ms. Siofra Cox (Musical Director) attended this years ceremony at the Bord Gais Energy Theatre on May 17th. RTE’s presenter Eoghan McDermott hosted the event and Aoibhin Garrihy judged and presented the award. Congratulations to all concerned.
