Ballina "One Act" Drama Festival

Ballina Arts Centre, Co. Mayo


Ballina "One Act" Drama Festival

Friday November 3rd to Sunday November 5th 2017

DeBallina has a long history of drama and theatre, and the welcome return of the third annual Ballina One Act Drama Festival from Friday November 3rd to Sunday November 5th in the beautiful Ballina Arts Centre will be one of the highlights of they year, especially with the return of Ballina Dramatic Society to the Drama festival circuit.

A one-act play is a play that has only one act, as distinct from plays that occur over several acts. One-act plays may consist of one or more scenes. This niche festival has really grown in popularity since its inception by Eugene Loftus in 2015 with most nights selling out, and together with his committee Eugene looks forward to extending a warm Ballina welcome to new and returning patrons.

With three plays nightly, audiences at Ballina Arts Centre can look forward to variety and fine hospitality in the comfort of this modern 220-seater theatre where director Sean Walsh and his team work side by side with the festival crew to ensure a seamless event.

Patrons are encouraged to join the committee and the contesting groups, nightly for the “Festival Club” at the newly refurbished and luxurious “Shambles Bar” at the Ballina Manor Hotel.

Opening this year’s festival, the committee is honoured to have Sinead Mc Kenna. A local lass, Sinead is an award winning international theatre lighting designer.

The play line up for Ballina One Act Drama Festival 2017 is as follows:

Friday 3rd November – 7.30pm

Groups taking part this year are:-

THE MOAT CLUB (Naas) ‘Victor’s Dung’ by Seamus O’ Rourke (All Ireland winners 2016)

SEAMUS O’ KELLY PLAYERS (Loughrea) ‘Small Box Psychosis’ by Barry McKinley

CLANN MACHUA (Kiltimagh) ‘The Hunger March’ by Michael Bodenstein

Saturday 4th November – 7.30pm

Cinderella Props

My name is Keith Ives and I am the Stage manager for St Mawes Players in Cornwall.
Earlier this year we put on a very successful pantomime of Cinderella. For this we made a beautiful coach for Cinderella to go to the ball in, to pull the coach we made four horses heads, and also a large pumpkin, sewing needle, cotton reel, a huge pair of scissors and a cage with four very realistic looking mice. In total it cost nearly five hundred pounds to make it all, so are hoping to try and recoup some of the cost.

Name: Julia Galbraith
Hi Im 50 is there a group for me?

Peter's response:

Hello Julia,

The answer is yes of course, age is no barrier to joining an amateur dramatics group.

You don’t say where you are located and I’m afraid I probably wouldn’t know the groups or schools in your area and so would be unable to make any recommendations. I suggest you take a look at the Groups section of the website and check the groups and schools in your County/Region. There will be groups and societies listed with contact details. If in doubt click on the group name or logo and that will take you directly to the group’s own website. In my experience most groups and schools would welcome any new member with open arms.

Best of luck, let me know how you get on.

Support Your Local Amateur Theatre Group

Author: Norma Phillips
Secretary of
Teesside Musical Theatre Company


We hope that Teesside Musical Theatre Company’s (TMTC) reputation will encourage audiences to buy tickets for the upcoming 2017 production of “Spamalot” being performed at Middlesbrough Theatre on 15-20 May 2017. “Spamalot” was aptly described by the Newcastle Evening Chronicle as “a pantomime for all seasons”, and our production promises to be spectacular and hilarious, appealing to everyone who wants to leave the theatre feeling thoroughly entertained. The only pain you will experience from this encounter with a “python” is the ache in your ribs from so much laughter.

TMTC were excited to secure the rights to “Spamalot” in 2014 to be the first North East Amateur Company to perform the show. However, due to circumstances beyond our control, tickets sales are likely to be adversely affected by the fact that many people may have already seen the show recently in the local area.

True to the “Spamalot” ethos, we are determined to “Always Look on the Bright Side of Life”, and rehearsals are progressing well. Our Committee and Members endeavour to be supportive of each other and work together to ensure the survival of local amateur theatre. Several members of Teesside Musical Theatre Youth Company are also part of the cast, giving them valuable experience in a full scale production and helping to secure the future of TMTC.

For “Spamalot” TMTC also have a Youtube page with amusing videos providing a taster of the production and showing how much fun the cast is having at rehearsals. Visit the page at and subscribe to receive news of future videos.

We need the support of local audiences to come and join in the fun at Middlesbrough Theatre from 15-20 May 2017 by ordering tickets from our ticket secretaries, Jacquie Kelly (tel: 07712 485211) and Sue Bargewell (tel: 07806 786327) or from the Box Office on 01642 815181. Tickets cost £15 for adults and £10 for Under 14s.
