Alfie Kilduff will direct the production that contains music by Benny Andersson and Björn Ulvaeus, of international pop music legends ABBA, and lyrics by Tim Rice. Musical Direction will be by Ger Madden and Choreography will be by Jay Molyneux.

Chess will run from Friday, March 3 to Sunday, March 5 2023, and from Wednesday, March 8 until Saturday, March 11 2023. Rehearsals will commence on October 13.

Scripts will be available on the night for those who wish to read for a part, or you can audition solely for chorus.

The Society requests that you register in advance if you wish to audition. The link for registration can be found on the Athlone Musical Society Facebook or Instagram pages, where you will also find a link with information on the cast and a show synopsis.

Athlone Musical Society would love to see old and new faces alike so if you think you might have what it takes to tread the boards next March, please call into The Bounty on October 7 for auditions. The Society is always eager to welcome new faces and fresh talent so what have you got to lose!
