‘Culture Night 2012′ in Youghal, where arts and cultural organisations open their doors until late with a series of free events, talks, musical performances and tours for all the family to enjoy.
St. Raphael’s Art & Drama group performed a pirate musical called ‘The Pirates of the Howling Wolf’ at the Red Store during ‘Culture Night 2012′ held in the town on Friday 21st September 2012. The colourful cast of characters in fancy dress costumes sang and danced in this Youghal Seafaring Adventure, produced by the award winning St. Raphael’s Art & Drama group.
The performance began with the Swashbuckling Pirates waving their swords at the fearful audience shouting “Pirates are coming” and everyone run to the beach where a fight took place. Fortunately a band of ‘Nuns of Run’ shouting “Thar she blows!” were on hand to fight back and defeat the Pirates. One of the pirates shouts “Ahoy” and discovers a hidden box of Brandy where upon everyone drinks and sings to the traditional Irish song “Óró, Sé do Bheatha ‘Bhaile” ( English translation – “Oh-ro You’re welcome home” ) . The performance was outstanding and the happy actors received a well deserved standing ovation.
