We are 21 shows in now so it’s time to get to know the cast a bit better.
Next up it’s Cormac O’Broin who plays Jack……
Can you tell us a little bit about yourself and where you are from?
My name is Cormac Ó Broin. I was born in Dublin and raised in Co.Antrim, the idllyic seaside town of Ballycastle.
Where did your interest in being an entertainer come from?
Throughout my Búnscoil experience I had always had to sing and do the Christmas nativity plays and I always enjoyed that. When I was in my second year in secondary school I was offered the chance to either go to class or audition for the school musical. I decided to audition and that began a lifelong love affair of performing. I ended up going to DCU for University for a degree in Mechatronic Engineering. Throughout this time I constantly was in plays and musicals with DCU Drama. As soon as I received my honours degree I decided to spin on a dime and jump straight into actor training. Saving up my pennies I managed to save enough for an acting course here and there until I finally started training with Momentum Acting studio, which I still call my home today.
What’s been your career highlight to date?
It would be between working on a WW1 short film “Tommy Rot”, travelling to London, America, and Mexico with “Big Shot: The Musical”, Touring India with Toccata Musical Productions as a singer, or indeed performing in this very pantomime!
What can audiences expect from Jack and the Beanstalk?
Audiences can expect a fun filled, fast paced, britches breaking comedy filled with amazing dance routines and a touching story
What character do you play?
I play Jack
What’s next for you?
For me, I’ll be going back to Momentum, and working on some scenes that I’m very interested in putting on
Tell us a random fact about yourself?
