A nice turnout of supporters was on hand to enjoy the 10th Anniversary Fiesta of the Ocean City Theatre Company over the weekend.Attendees enjoyed traditional Mexican fare and each others’ company at the home of Artistic Director Michael Hartman.The event was as much of a celebration of OCTC’s decade of providing high quality theatre to the Jersey Shore as it was a fundraiser. In addition to celebrating the past, the Fiesta also kicked off the organization’s highly anticipated summer season.The organization operates as a Summer Stock/Regional company producing a full schedule of professional musicals each season. It works in partnership with the award-winning Ocean City Pops.This year’s schedule includes such shows as Broadway on the Boardwalk (June 28), Madagascar – A Musical Adventure (July 3), the Trial of Goldilocks (July 11), Fiddler on the Roof (July 11,12 and 14), Curious George: The Golden Meatball (July 18), The Musical Adventure of Flat Stanley (July 25), Stinky Kids the Musical (August 1), and Mary Poppins (August 8, 9, and 11).If you missed the event, you can still aid the OCTC.

One of Donegal’s most historic hotels is set to reopen with the creation of up to 30 new jobs in February.The Foyle Hotel on Main Street in Moville on the Inishowen Peninsula was first opened in the 1800s but closed in around 2008.The seaside town has suffered economically but is set for a fresh injection of life with the reopening of the new hotel. An application for a new seven-day license for the premises was brought before Judge John Aylmer at Letterkenny Circuit Court today.Developer and co-owner of the hotel, Mr Philip Bonner told the court that himself and his brother had spent up to €1 million on the refurbishment of the hotel.He said they hoped the hotel will be completed in February and will create between 25 and 30 jobs.At present, up to 35 people are employed in the refurbishment of the hotel. The court was told that a management company has already taken on an initial three-year lease to run the hotel once it opens.Barrister Ms. Constance Cassidy told the court that the current license on the hotel lapsed in around 2008 when the hotel got into trouble.She stressed that there were no endorsements on the license before it lapsed.She applied to have a new license, in the name of Mr. James Reilly from Newport in Co Mayo, to be transferred to the hotel on Moville.Mr. Reilly gave evidence that his license is set to expire on his premises on September 30th, 2018. He said he was giving his consent to the extinguishment of his license if the license is granted to the Foyle Hotel.The licensing application is to come before the court again before the hotel is due to officially open in February.Famous Donegal hotel to reopen with creation of up to 30 new jobs was last modified: December 9th, 2017 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)Tags:applicationdonegalFoyle Hoteljobsmoville
