Cast and Crew from The Beauty Queen of Leenane
The St. Patrick's Drama Group from Westport Co. Mayo visited Chicago to perform Martin McDonagh's 'Beauty Queen of Leenane' at the Irish American Heritage Center on Feb 20th. A great turn out for the shows including a large Mayo contingent made it a great two nights of excellent entertainment and community fun. Thank you to the Westport visitors whose excellent performances from the all actors including Regina McCormack, and the Beauty Queen herself, Colette McGinty was hilarious, gripping and shocking with great directing from Mary Carr. Thank you also to Ambrose Kelly, creator of the amazing set and all the Heritage Center volunteers for their consistent time and effort in making the heritage center a place for the broader Chicago community to come and enjoy Irish culture.
