Druid Theatre’s Cherry Orchard

Feb 19 2020 Posted: 12:35 GMT

Galway’s Druid Theatre became the first Irish theatre company ever to present a live broadcast to cinemas when they performed The Cherry Orchard in February. That show had a huge NUI Galway presence! Fourth Year GY118 student DELIA KEANE appeared in the cast, as did GY115 graduate Peter Shine! Also involved were other graduates of the GY118 programme: Cliodhna Hallissey was assistant costume designer while Alison Grene was Druid’s marketing officer. And for Element Pictures (which arranged the live broadcast), Amy Walsh also worked on the marketing! 
This shows how the GY118 programme seeks to prepare students for work in all areas of theatre – not just acting and design, but also arts management and related areas!
