Adjudicator John P. Kelly trained many years ago with the Abbey Theatre in Dublin and has directed shows all over Ireland, including at the Abbey itself, at Dublin's second theatre The Gate, The Gaiety, The Olympia, The Cork Opera House and, in the Irish language at the National Theatre in Irish in Galway. More years ago than he cares to count, John began as an actor and director in Community Theatre. On (eventually) winning the overall circuit prize, he was offered an Irish Arts Council bursary to train professionally and quickly threw in "the day job". Over the years, he has conducted workshops with ages from four (never again!) to eighty-four (never again!!), for community and professional theatre and has even earned a few cents (eurocents) in personnel training. He joined the British Guild of Drama Adjudicators in the early 90s and, typically Irish, shortly afterwards co-founded the Irish Adjudicators Association. He has officiated at all levels including finals in Ireland and Scotland. In October 2004, he did his first Canadian Festival in Peterborough. John is a friendly animal and answers to John, John P. or Sean!
