I chose this topic-Thoroughly Modern Musicals- for my end of year performance as I have always had a love for and interest in musical theatre. From a young age I have performed in numerous musicals in which I portrayed many leading roles. Over the past few years the world of musical theatre has been presented with an array of new musical ideas through modern shows. Composers such as Jason Robert Brown and Jonathon Larson have composed fresh, exciting and vibrant scores combined with engaging stories. Also Broadway and the West End have seen a surge in the popularity in musicals based on the works of successful groups such as ABBA and The Four Seasons. My reasoning behind choosing these new modern works as my chosen topic owes to the fact that these modern shows need to be heard by a wider audience. We are all aware of the work by dynamic duo Andrew-Llloyd Webber and Tim Rice as well as the classic compositions of Rogers and Hammerstein but I believe nowadays new musicals arenʼt getting the exposure they deserve. In carrying out my performance I hope to expand the musical minds of the audience and while simultaneously enriching their knowledge of the world of musical theatre.

“I'll play it first and tell you what it is later.”
- Miles Davis.

Pat O’ Donnell - Thursday 19 May, Cyprus Avenue 6:00PM
"Say you are a wanderer, searching for truth,
Exploring the familiar and foreign lands of this art,
Each sound heard is but a reflection of the journey,
With each mirrored image capturing moments of light, darkness,
weakness, warmth, enchantment.
Here on this path lay pebbles,
when brushed together they create sparks of inspiration....
of early morning elation, the trading of bodies, the hail storm of thought.
....the silhouette drawings of moments"
