Moyraverty Arts and Drama Society in association with Laura Robinson and Caitirona Corr will be hosting a fundraising concert for their student and MADS member Holly McConville, who has been selected to perform with National Youth Music Theatre in London during the month of July.

The concert will take place this Friday evening at the Links Auditorium, 23A Castle Lane, Lurgan. The doors open at 7pm and the show starts at 7.30pm.

A spokesperson for the Drama group said,: “We are all very supportive of Holly who has been a member of MADS! for over 10 years.

“Holly, who is a pupil of Lismore Comprehensive, has featured as a principal character in loads of shows for us and has also performed as Annie in the Grand Opera House in Belfast.

“This is a great opportunity for this very talented young lady to perform in London and we as a group very much want to help out with the costs involved.”

Her speech and drama teacher Laura Robinson and her singing teacher Caitriona Corr will also provide students to perform at this concert. They thanked the management of Links for accommodating them at such a short notice and said they looked forward to performing in the impressive auditorium for the first time.
