Ardscoil La Salle’s Talent show and Panto “Cinder Della” took place on the nights of Wednesday 12th and Thursday 13th March. This year it was jointly hosted by duo Stephen Kenny (6th Year) and Adam Powell (5th Year). A variety of acts took part and performed some excellent pieces. The Della Voices choir also contributed with their take on some well-known songs.

A very welcome addition to this year’s line-up was the highly entertaining pantomime “Cinder Della”. A very enthusiastic TY class, ably assisted by director Ms. Magin proved to be a huge hit with the audience.

The visiting judges and Talent Show/Panto choreographers faced the very difficult challenge of deciding on the prize winners. 3rd prize went to Temi Abioye (5th Yr) for a unique and very energetic drumming piece, 2nd prize to Craig Blount-Griffin (6th Yr) with a beautiful version of Glen Hassard’s Oscar winning “Falling Slowly” and 1st prize to Dianne Murphy (6th Yr) for a haunting, show stopping rendition of London Grammar’s “Strong”.

It proved to be two fantastic nights of talent and entertainment. Well done to the winners, actors and all of the students who took part!
