Student Insight - FYP Take a Bow

11 Mar 2019
Final Year Showcase Curtain Call

As FYP showcase comes to an end, hear and see what students have to say.


"For me the FYP was more than just a college module. It was a chance to show our work to the public and I will look back on it with a great sense of pride and accomplishment". – Stefan Healy

"It feels quite surreal that its over now having worked on it for so long but i like to think this isn't the last you see of betwixt one man and i really I couldn't be prouder of our pieces and how well they went !" – Tommy O’Connor


"Most challenging but rewarding experience of my life. The run was incredibly enjoyable, especially when your creating and performing with friends" – Aideen Fox

"FYP being over is kind of bittersweet - 6 months of hard work is over but so is 6 months of creating with my group, which I’ll definitely miss. I think the show in general went better than we could have imagined - no matter what happens, we made our own original piece of theatre and that’s something that will stay with me after I finish college". – Issey Fenton

"The week of the show was great and I’m quite sad that’s it’s over , what am I going to do with all my spare time hahah , the dress rehearsal was a little wobbly and I forgot a few lines and we discovered we were a few minutes over time so we decided to cut out a few pages of text a day before the show went up. Thursday was our favourite audience as it was the UCC youth theatre and there was lots of laughs which gave us great energy . Friday night was a quieter audience but Saturday picked back up and family and friends came to see us . It was great bringing our piece to an audience as with a comedic piece we feed our responses and energy from the spectators" – Ciara Conroy
