RAPA Drama were asked to provide actors for a short film called ‘One Short Day’ three more students and myself had roles. Eilis Hand, Orlaith Kent and Eabha Taggart participated, again a super experience for all. I don’t know if you remember that some of the students auditioned for the RTE television series, ‘Show Off or Get Off’? Well, two of the RAPA students, got through the auditions and performed on television. I know it was great fun for them on the day of filming. Well done Jade Marron and Lucy Reidy!
