Ballaghaderreen native returns to Roscommon Arts Centre

Roscommon Arts Centre

Ballaghaderreen’s Julie Sharkey returns to Roscommon Arts Centre tomorrow night, Thursday June 23rd, with her own one-woman show “A Game Called Lucy Finally Wins”.

Written and directed by CC Kiely “A Game Called Lucy Finally Wins” is a play within a game show where the stories of Lucy’s (played by Julie) life are revealed entirely by chance and audience participation. In an endlessly entertaining evening of stories, raffles, quizzes and musical treats, this evening’s star prize is a “mostly full box of Roses”. This evening’s star performer is Lucy, who will resist giving up her Roses to the bitter end. As each performance is determined by each audience, A Game Called Lucy Finally Wins is different every time. Will this be the night where Lucy finally wins?

Julie last graced the Roscommon Arts Centre stage in Nomad’s “The Far Off Hills” where she gave a magnificent performance, playing several comedic characters. Her other theatre work includes Goodnight Irene, Raccoon, The Fourth Wise Man, There Are Little Kingdoms, The White Lady and Madame T for the Meridian Theatre Company.

She works extensively as Voice Over Artist and Narrator on Radio and TV. Julie features on Book on One, Corrigan’s City Farm, Corrigan Cooks Naturally and How To Create A Garden as well as adverts for a well known Supermarket.

The show takes place tomorrow, Thursday 23rd June, at 8pm. The setting is Cabaret style, with limited seating capacity. Tickets, priced at €15, are now on sale the Roscommon Arts Centre Box Office on 09066 25824 and at
