DANCING With The Stars hopeful Aoibhin Garrihy is set to bring a splash of sequins and some newly learned Samba skills to this year’s Bord Gais Energy Student Theatre Awards.
The former Fair City star joins this year’s expert judging panel alongside Amy Huberman – and she’s encouraging students to get their entries in now.
Aoibhin, who’s also a speech and drama teacher, will bring her acting expertise and recently acquired choreography skills to the judging panel and will help judge the performance categories.
She said: “I’m so excited to be involved in this year’s Student Theatre Awards. As someone who has had a love for acting and performing since I was a child, I understand how important it is to encourage and celebrate participation in the dramatic arts
during school, and these awards do just that!
“As a judge, I’ll be looking for enthusiasm, innovation and commitment to the character whether that is through a powerful performance or captivating choreography.
“Above all else, I am really looking forward to seeing some of the standout talent from this year’s Awards.”
The deadline for entries in all production categories is January 27. The closing date for entries in the written categories is February 10.
Shortlisted schools will be invited to a special awards ceremony at the Bord Gais Energy Theatre on May 17 – some will even get the chance to perform on Ireland’s largest theatre stage.
