EAST Clare Musical Society make a welcome return to the stage, later this month, after the Covid shutdown.
“This Easter we have eggsactly the treat that audiences, starved of musical theatre for two years, require,” said Eoin O’Hagan.
“We are delighted to announce we will stage a reprise of the cabaret special, A Night at the Musicals, in Scariff Community College on Friday, Saturday and Sunday April 15-17, with curtain up nightly at 8pm.”
This hugely popular show, which sold out in February 2020, just prior to lockdown, will entertain the fans of musical theatre with solo appearances from many of the leads of previous musical performances of the East Clare Musical Society.
Led by Musical Director John O’Brien with the accompaniment of Anne Cullen and Steve Lawrence, songbird Vashti Curran will come back to the stage after a very successful year-long residency performing cabaret in Germany.
Also taking to the stage are other highly talented singers, most of who graced the boards in the 2020 show. These include Paul Conroy, Edel O’Grady, Cathal Moloney, Ruth O’Hagan, Jim and Maeve O’Brien, Sarah King, Brendán Baguio, Ger and Caoimhe Treacy, Sandra and Chloe O’Halloran, Sinéad and Louise O’Callaghan, Sarah Kate McConnell, Michelle Fitzsimons, Miriam Smith, Eoin Heffernan, Mags McGrath, Orlaith Nihill and, Conor McGrath and Rob Kerby of The After Eights aka the Killaloe Male Voice Choir.
“These performers will be joined by a chorus line made up of local singers and dancers, choreographed by Sarah Allen with the assistance of Claire O’Sullivan.
The chorus lines numbers will be swelled by many of Scariff Community College’s Transition Year students.
Those who attended A Night at the Musicals in 2020 will attest to the quality of the entertainment on stage, and the gracious hospitality, off stage, by the East Clare Musical Society’s hosts.
Tickets for this highly anticipated event are priced at €30, will be sold only through Eventbrite.
“Come join The East Clare Musical Society as we take to the stage, once again, to entertain you with your favourite songs from the musicals, sung by these highly talented people from all over the hills of East County Clare,” Mr O’Hagan said.
