At the Official Opening of the West Waterford Drama Festival: Hugh Collins (Festival Chairman), Fiona McDonnell (Festival Director), Peter O'Driscoll (Adjudicator) with Hannah Landers and Katie Hannon, members of the Waterford All Ireland Intermediate Ladies Football Team who officially opened the Festival.

With just one open and two confined plays left to run at the West Waterford Drama Festival in Ballyduff, anticipation is high as the awards ceremony on Saturday night gets ever closer.

This Thursday night sees the  much loved Nenagh group arrive with ‘The Miracle Worker’ by William Gibson to complete the six plays in the open section.

Friday night brings near neighbours Kilworth Dramatic Society in their Ballyduff debut with Sam Cree’s comedy ‘Cupid Wore Skirts’ – sure to be a laugh a minute!

The final play of four in the confined section sees another new  group in Ballyduff – Curtain Call Productions from Dungarvan on stage with ‘The Graduate’ by Terry Johnson.

That completed, all that’s left will be for adjudicator Peter O’Driscoll to announce the list of award winners. Best of luck to one and all!
