TCS presents variety show Back to the 90s

Tallaght Community School presented our variety show Back to the 90s on Thursday, 29th of November. As this was our 1st variety show, we decided to go back to an era that many of us older staff members remember living through! The 1990’s was a great decade not just for music and dance, it also gave us Italia 90, Riverdance, and some suspect fashion!

Our annual show is something we look forward to as it brings together so many members of our school community. On the night we saw the work of students and staff from across TCS. Every year group in the school was represented on the stage, performing alongside some of our staff members. It was truly a whole school project.

Act 1 kicked off in 1991 with Be Our Guest from Disney’s Beauty & the Beast and continued through the decade featuring performances as diverse as Aladdin, Sister Act, Kris Kross, Spice Girls and Oasis! Abbie Keeley brought us to the interval and the end of Act 1 with her haunting performance of Zombie by The Cranberries.

Act 2 began with a comedy sketch featuring some of ‘Joxers crew’ as they enjoyed the hospitality, if not the food, Italy had to offer at Italia ’90. Songs from Toy Story, Mamma Mia, Mermaids, Whigfield, Michael Jackson, vintage Spice Girls and a mash up by Todrick Hall were all hits with the audience in Act 2 but it was an electrifying performance of Riverdance that delivered goosebumps. This was a spine tingling act as champion dancer Anthony O’Connor led a step perfect troop through their paces in an accomplished performance.

All through the performance we had the wonderful talents of Trudy Nolan, Liam Duffin and Adam McDowell who proved that they have comedic timing down to a fine art and a wonderful act to introduce and link the show together as it travelled through the 90’s nostalgia.
