Musical Drama

Keep 'er Lit

Fri 17 May 2019

To celebrate their 40th Anniversary Include Youth in partnership with The Arts Academy presents ‘Keep 'er Lit - The Musical’, an original production by David Oliver & Cat MacGinty, the writers of ‘Gutz’, ‘Balo Balo’ and ‘Time’.

Just after the signing of the Good Friday Agreement and in the aftermath of the troubles, Keep ‘er lit follows the lives of Callan, Jodie, Katie and Mat who, by no fault of their own, are finding life adverse and difficult. Having one thing in common as talented musicians & singers, they find support in their mentors Dylan & Fauna, both of whom are youth workers and former musicians. After a year together on a community music programme and with a final live performance as a band in the ‘Keep er lit’ festival, will these young people let their circumstances hold them back or will they rise to the challenge that awaits them in the wilds of Donegal? Join the ‘band’ on their trip into the unknown as Andy the bus driver, Garda McCluskey, Bridie the bar owner and a host of other characters make it a weekend that they will never forget. 

With an original script & soundtrack including hit songs such as ‘Kings of our time’, ‘Sweet Surrender’ & ‘That’s Ok!’, an adult cast & 10 piece live band, this upbeat, edgy & powerful show will have you on the edge of your seat!
