This year’s TY musical, "Seven Brides for Seven Brothers" kicked off with a bang last Thursday when over forty Transition Year students nervously gathered to audition for lead roles in the musical. The requirement for the audition was to sing the well known and loved song "Bless Your Beautiful Hide", which as you can imagine, is, quite a difficult song for teenage girls to sing considering traditionally it is sang by a forty year old man. As people shied away from the camera, their nervous anticipation engulfed the entire room.
The morning began with a few simple warm up exercises in preparation for the auditions. Throughout the auditions the nervous energy was evident but it was clear that this year’s production of "Seven Brides for Seven Brothers" will contain a huge amount of talent and promise! We are awaiting the next stage of auditions which will take place this Thursday, where the students will perform a monologue. We are sure it will be yet another display of promising talent! One of the members of the TY Blog (Aoife) recalled, "It was a lot of fun, I enjoyed auditioning as I love singing and I can't wait until the next audition!".
