Follow the incredible story of three girls and one guy bound by a common dream, who worked their way from the streets of New Jersey to the heights of stardom. Jersey Girls, an original musical, will take you on an exhilarating journey with electrifying performances of the golden greats of the 60s and 70s! The songs that took these girls and that guy from Belleville, New Jersey all the way to the Grammys in 1966!

Follow Shirley, Donna, Beverly and Marty as they hit the road and headline club after club. The story plays tribute to the music of the '60s and ‘70s! A new era of ideas, thinking, change, and especially music. Theirs is a story celebrating the strength of friendship and the importance of music. At the heart of their tale is an ode to the enduring power of love. Filled with powerful music, incredible dancing and a truly moving story, ‘Jersey Girls’ will leave you breathless.

In time-honoured fashion St. Mary’s students come together to deliver a show that is simply not to be missed. This in-house led production with a unique script and innovative set will live long in your memories. A sparkling tribute to the universal power of music, Jersey Girls will get your feet tapping, hands clapping and hearts racing! Running over three nights at 8pm every night this is a show brim-full of drama, music, song and dance. St. Mary’s is renowned for its history of memorable musicals, spanning more than 39 years – with the 2022 show “Jersey Girls ” promising to be the best yet! An original script is brought to the stage by an amazing cast of Transition Year students, ably assisted by the Second Year music class and our Fifth Year choir.

Book now, and sit back and enjoy

“Jersey Girls ” is the latest show in a long line of successful productions, under the guidance of director and script-writer, Ms Angela Donoghue, Musical Director, Ms Regina Deacy and Choreographers, Ms Annette Leonard and Ms Shauna Kearney. The team also incorporates the talents of the Art Department led by Ms Renee Cronin and the team of Home Economics teachers, spearheaded by Ms Marie Clarke coordinating costumes. With an extensive cast and crew behind the scenes this year’s show comes hot on the heels of the 2020 extravaganza “SISTER reACT” .

Director, Mrs Angela Donoghue said:“We were so disappointed that Covid-19 restrictions did not allow for a performance last year but we have come back with a show we think will live long in the hearts and ears of all who see it!This is our 38th musical and “Jersey Girls” is special and unique because it focuses on the friendship and creativity of Shirley, Donna, Beverley and Marty and their drive for the stars. The music, which we all know and love, will endure long after the lights come down. Our story explores the nature of true friendship and love. An enduring message to take home is that we cannot make it by ourselves, we must graciously accept others too, give them our friendship, and if necessary, take risks with them.

Principal, Mr Robert O’Reilly, wished the cast and crew well in the upcoming shows, adding: “A production like this does not just happen overnight, and at St. Mary’s, we are proud to write and produce an original show which is completely produced in-house from script to set design to costumes and promotions; the staff and students really work together to make this a fantastic opportunity – and a memorable cross-curricular learning curve – for our Transition Year students. We extend a warm invitation to all to come to our school and get a taste of a really fantastic musical production.”

Curtain up at 8pm nightly! Raffle each night! Sing and dance to the sounds of Motown as brought to you by St. Mary’s!
