Those of us who have been privileged to have experienced the truly magnificent production of John B. Keane’s “Sive” as presented in recent weeks by the wonderfully talented Banteer Drama Group have come away from the performance feeling uplifted and moved by the most impressive theatrical event. Here we share some 35 images (as promised in our initial post) from last Sunday night’s performance (18th Nov. 2018). And we also get to meet with the cast and members of the audience.

With the final performance on Sunday 25th Nov. 2018 at 8:30pm “Sive” performed by the Banteer Drama Group at Banteer’s Glen Theatre – a magnificent production with such a wonderfully authentic 1950s set – is such a superb theatrical experience with supremely talented Actors. Well done indeed to Directors of this excellent Drama Production – Tadhg O’Keeffe and Mary Ellis. Details from 029 – 56239. Here we share a selection of images from the most memorable Drama. Lots more pictures to follow later. Click on the images to enlarge. (S.R.)
Banteer Drama Group “Family Fever” by Sam Cree continues at the Glen Theatre this Sun 12th April at 8:30pm and this hilarious comedy is a follow up to last year’s “Wedding Fever”. As the Galbraith family prepare for Christmas and New Year, Alec Galbraith hopes for a peaceful Christmas. However, Myra, his eldest daughter, is heavily pregnant and is ready to give birth at any moment, while daughter Linda is cooing in a lovesick fashion over the latest object of her affections, the kilted Scotsman Archie McNulty. Stir in a pair of staidly disapproving in-laws, nosy neighbours Willie and Emily Beatty disturbing the peace, some slinky ladies underwear, an amorous Aunt Maud, a nappy-changing scene where flour is used instead of talc to salve the baby’s bottom, and a generous amount of seasonal tippling, and you get the picture!
Everyone is welcome. There is also a show on Sunday 19th April at 8:30pm.
