Toonheid Speaks, Toonspeak Tuesdays, Word of Mouth, Rookie Writers… The Great Aziz and Karaoke! It was a fabulous night.
It seemed everyone really enjoyed the party. We had a dance performance, poems, incredible magic tricks and some brilliant spoken word performances.
The Great Aziz surprised everyone with his magic skills. By the time he was on the stage, he conjured six doves, made playing cards disappear and appear again. He even made a table fly!
The audience was absolutely amazed by Rachel Pole’s performance who is one of our Rookie Writers. She was rewarded by a grand applause! Erin Boyle from Word of Mouth, our older Young Writers group made everyone laugh with her poem ‘Bulb’. The whole group concluded with a joint performance, thanking Cathy Forde (the lead of the project) for her guidance and inspiration.
At the end of the night, a few young people took a turn on the karaoke belting out some Christmas songs. Also very popular was also our music-making station, enjoyed especially by the Toonies from Toonheid Speaks. And of course our photo booth which always goes down a treat as you can see from the photos! Massive thanks to Kevin Main our amazing photographer.
What a magical and fantastic night.
Big thanks especially belongs to Shelby and David, who compered the whole show and were excellent! Even the knock-knock jokes!
We are so proud of our young people and we cannot wait to see them in 2017 for our Spring production.
