Ballyduff Drama Group's production of 'Takin' over the Asylum' directed by Ger Canning qualified for the 2015 All Ireland Drama Finals in Athlone in a nail biting finish to the 2015 festival circuit.

This is the seventh consecutive production by Ballyduff drama group to do so and the sixth under the direction of Ger Canning - a record unrivaled on the amateur circuit.

Ballyduff will appear on Monday 4th May in the Dean Crowe Theatre in Athlone and will therefore run its pre Athlone performances in St Michael Hall Ballyduff on Thursday 30th April, Friday 1st May at 8.15pm & Sunday 3rd May at 1pm.

Wishing all involved with the production all the best at the finals.

If using Sat Nav, be careful when inputting. There are at least three Ballyduffs in County Waterford. In particular, there is a village called Ballyduff about five miles from Waterford City. This is not us! Coordinates 52° 08' 51" N, 8° 03' 06" W will get you pretty near the correct Ballyduff! more
