Inclusive Theatre Drama Group present The High School Robbery.  
The High School Robbery is not just a musical, it's a chilling adventure, a show with singing, dancing and drawing for the way we perform today.  Devised by the St Joseph's Foundation, Charleville drama group with a supporting cast of Footsteps Youth Theatre this is going to be a great night for everyone, but look out! The robbers are framing someone, who is going to help the drama students?   Queen Elsa comes to the rescue and Troy Bolton saves the day!  The robbers won't steal the show but some of our special actors might.  Director – Fiona Quinn.  Supported by the Dormant Account Fund.
Tickets priced €5



The ‘Inclusive Theatre for Inclusive Living’ project aims to increase the competencies of young people with disabilities and support their inclusion in the local community.  The project is a partnership between Friars’ Gate Theatre and St. Joseph’s Foundation, Charleville, Co. Cork.  Together we will support young people with disabilities, enabling them to develop the necessary skills and capacities for a successful transition to adulthood.  The project will deliver theatre workshops over the course of 18 months to young people with intellectual disabilities. The workshops will support the participants with emotional maturation, communication skills, interpersonal dynamics, and life planning.  The project covers the Ballyhoura region, East Limerick/North Cork.  This project was approved by Government with support from the Dormant Accounts Fund.
