Athenry Musical Society – Winter 2002

Musical Sugar: After a very successful production of Oklahoma, The Athenry Musical Society have even sweeter plans.

Athenry Musical Society is pleased to announce their production for 2003. Based on the hilarious film “Some Like It Hot” SUGAR features the same memorable characters that made this screenplay so popular. Joe and Jerry, two musicians down on their luck, witness a gang rob-out in Chicago, Spats and his boys immediately chase after the pair. Desperate for a quick way out of town, Joe and Jerry hear of jobs available in a band scheduled to leave at once for Florida. The only problem is, the band is all female.

With a bit of costuming, padding, makeup and slight voice adjustments, they become Josephine and Daphne, join the band and get acquainted with Sugar, the gorgeous blond lead singer. The rest is great fun and the Society is looking forward to the rehearsals that will be starting in early January 2003.

The show will run for four nights, Thursday to Sunday, 27th and 28th February and 1st and 2nd March 2003.

New members for the chorus are welcome and help is always appreciated backstage and on sets, costumes, makeup etc.
