When it comes to directing a show,especially something as big as this, which we can say, will be our biggest production to date, we needed someone who would really grab the bull by the horns and hold nothing back...and by god we have that person.
Ladies and Gentlemen allow us to introduce to you Miss Kelly-Ann Whelan. Look at her there, all dickie bowed up and having the crack.
Kelly-Ann is someone in particular we have wanted to work with for a long time,since we started really. And we are absolutely delighted to have her on board.
She hasn't been seen on stage since Duiske College did there famous variety show back in 2008 where she played Sister Theresa in the schools version of Sister Act...she was amazing.
Although she won't be on stage,we hope to change all that next year, but that's for another day.
When it comes to putting a production together, it's important for each individual not to take too much on, otherwise your production can falter. Bringing a show together, is a team effort, with each person's role playing a vital part.
This is one of the most important lessons Spark Productions has learned over the year. Never be afraid to trust someone with a role, no matter how big or small. Learning this has proved successful for us, seeing that with a team effort and everyone working to their best ability will give better results and also help ease the stress of trying to make it a success. We can see already from this production how much easier it has been to bring the whole thing together without one person taken on too much, and everyone has stepped up to the plate.
Saying that it also needs a leader. And Kelly-Ann is just that person.
From November things are really going to heat up in the office and as we have said before we are holding no prisoners with this show.
