Lights, camera, action! This is a phrase used a lot at CoAction Beara since the group began writing, filming and producing its very own soap opera ‘The North Roaders’ back in November 2014.

Teenage angst, peer pressure and car crashes are just some of the exciting storylines of The North Roaders, which has now reached its tenth episode. The show features all the usual soap opera type characters like bad boy John Bower, who amongst other things deals drugs, steals from his sister’s factory and makes up fake competitions to scam the entry fee.   

The action takes place in various sets – the local jam factory where a lot of the characters work; Mary’s Tea Rooms where everyone likes to hang out, and the local North Road Community College, which all the youngsters attend. The soap even has its an original theme tune, which you can sing along to at the start and end of each episode.

Members of the drama group at CoAction Beara have great fun while filming their episodes, as well as learning valuable skills in acting, producing, scriptwriting and filming. Thanks to a recent grant from Cork County Council, the group has a nifty new camera and filming equipment to continue on with their activities.

New episodes of the north Roaders are aired about once a month and are short and sweet at around 10 minutes in length. The cast would love everyone both near and far to tune in to their Youtube channel ‘The North Roaders’ and support their project by watching, liking and sharing the episodes. They hope one day, in the not-too-distant future, to air an episode on real TV.
