Music and Drama

Both Music and Drama play a big role in Gaelcholáiste Chomáin. Music is a choice subject on the school’s curriculum. The annual Christmas Concert, which involves all Transition Year students, provides opportunities for all the school to perfect and flaunt their acting and musical skills. The Christmas productions have proved very successful, drawing large attendances each year. Transition Year students have an input in the productions and the storylines from the shows. Previous productions have included “The Playboy of the Western World”, “Tóg Amach Mé”, and most recently “Tobar an Phúca, C.U. COOK & BURN”. Students from all years get the chance to sharpen their music skills, through instrumental playing, singing, and group activities. Students also play an active role in the choreography of the shows, working together to polish their dancing techniques and routines.
