Pascal Gough has returned to the committee this year as Business Manager, while PRO duties are being shared between Laura Dillon and Emer Kilroy, assisted by Cian Mulhall. Caoimhe Croasdell, Heather Doyle, Eunan Keyes and Cherise O’Moore, who complete the committee for the forthcoming season.
Athlone Musical Society are looking forward first and foremost to the annual AIMS awards ceremony which will take place on Saturday, September 19.
This year’s awards, like so many other events, will take place virtually. However, the Society is looking forward to celebrating safely, while still bringing the glamour glitz and sparkle to the awards night with all those involved in the colourful production of 'Joseph and the Amazing Technicolour Dreamcoat' is looking forward to putting on the glad rags and celebrating a great season in style.
Five is the magic number for the Society this year with nominations for their production of 'Joseph and his amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat'. Let's hope awards night provides the well-deserved 'icing on the cake' for the Society.
Looking ahead, the Society has chosen 'The Wedding Singer' as it production for 2021. 'The Wedding Singer' is set in a time when hair was big, greed was good, pandemics were not a thing, and a wedding singer might just be the coolest guy in the room. The Society will announce audition date details as soon as is feasible to enable the commencement of show preparations.
The curtain may remain down for now, the stage remains unlit, but think outside the box, use innovation to keep connection and still celebrate and look forward to the brighter days that are ahead. The show must go on!
