Carrick-on-Suir Musical Society’s production of Westside Story, which finished its week long run last Saturday, received a rave review at Carrick Town Council’s meeting this week.

Cllr Sylvia Cooney-Sheehan told the Council meeting on Monday night she wished to congratulate the cast and crew of this show, which was booked out every night.

Westside Story was the Musical Society’s landmark 100th production.

The Society also celebrated the 70th anniversary of its foundation and ten years since it took ownership of The Strand Theatre with the opening of a photographic exhibition at the theatre showcasing some of the highlights of its history to date.

Cllr Cooney-Sheehan also paid tribute to Tom Power, the only surviving person from the Society’s first ever production HMS Pinafore, who was among the founders honoured last week.

She said there wasn’t a family in Carrick-on-Suir that hasn’t been involved in the Musical Society at some stage and said well done to all.
