Coláiste Choilm Presents 

‘For One Night Only – A musical walk through time’ 
is a huge success

The show was held on Wednesday 16th in the Gym to a big audience who were given a great nights entertainment.
The show was a walk through time starting in the 50's with Elvis  right up to the present moment with Ed Sheerin and included songs from each decade.
Any show of this nature requires a lot of organisation and coordination. Ms. Hogan, Musical Director was ably assisted by both staff and students. 
All the different aspects of the schow from costumes and makeup to stage management was excetional and seemless.
 The talent on show was amazing and it was great to see the lads enjoying themselves on the stage.

Well done to all of the lads who took part in the show.
