On the 3rd of March we headed to Mullingar, to perform in the Briery Gap Light Entertainment Competition. We had auditioned for the final in January, and we were overjoyed when we found out we were in the final. We performed our dance drama piece Grace O’Malley. We were lucky enough to be able to stay overnight in Mullingar in a hotel. We arrived in Mullingar on the Thursday and had the competition on Friday.
After we all found our rooms and got settled, that night we all went to Eddie Rockets for dinner which was delicious. Also that night we all went to the cinema and seen the film Logan.
The next day was competition, we all were up at 9 for breakfast and then went for a rehearsal. At around 12 we went to the theater and got our make up, hair and costumes all done. We were the 4th out of 5 acts on so we had a lot of time to spare. We were able to watch the first couple of acts, they were amazing and also so lovely to talk too.
Once it was out time to perform we all were nervous although more so excited. The performance went in a blink of an eye and afterwards we were all on a buzz. At the end of the show the judges stepped out on stage, and announced the awards. The anticipation was killing us, we got best lead and best trad group. Although once we heard we came joint 1st, we jumped out of our seats screaming for joy.We ran on stage screaming with happiness and joy, dancing and singing. We got our tropheys and got our pictures and it was honestly such a crazy experience. We went again to Eddie Rockets for a celebratory meal and then headed for home. The bus journey home was not calm and quiet it was, very loud with everyone singing “We are the Champions”…
