The cast and crew of Tullamore Musical Society’s “Beauty & the Beast!” are finalising their production this week in preparation for their opening night Monday, January 16 in the Court Hotel.
“The past few months has paid tribute to the talent involved within the society,” commented director Christine Scarry, who has just finished directing this year’s Olympia Theatre Panto involving the confident duo Jedward. “The roles in this show are hard to fill yet the people who came forward for them proved their worth,” she added.
The auditions took place in the Tullamore Court Hotel on Sunday, September 5.
Director Christine and Musical Director Enda O’ Connor had the difficult task of deliberating and deciding on their cast.
