After weeks of auditions the Tipperary Musical Society is delighted to announce the casting for their new show.
High Society will open to audiences on Monday, February 14, and run until Saturday, February 19.
Cathy Kean joins the TMS for the first time this year to play the role of Tracey Lord. Tracey is the leading lady and the Show takes place during the weekend where she is due to marry her fianc, George Kitritch. George is played by the very talented Derek Ryan and Cathal O'Donahue returns to the stage this year to play the part of Dexter Haven (Tracey's ex-husband) after taking a well earned break last year.
The lovable Diarmuid Vaughan and Tipperary Rose Lynda Kelly will perform as two sneaky reporters, (Mike Connor and Liz Imbrie), who are sent in undercover to get all the gossip on Tracey's father Seth Lord (Liam Carey) who is trying to get his marriage back on track with 'Mother Lord', (Maureen Walsh).
Little Eimer Carew rejoins us this year after her wonderful performance as Chip in last year's show, Disney's Beauty and The Beast. Eimer is back to take on a more challenging role as Dinah Lord (Tracey's little sister).
What production would be complete without a little comedy? And who better to portray the role of Uncle Willie other than Willie 'Bun' Ryan. Uncle Willie is Tracy's uncle who is very fond of the ladies.
While all the action is taking place between Tracy and her family the cheeky servants, who are being played by the TMS Chorus are getting up to no good particularly during the number, 'Lets Misbehave'.
High Society has something for everyone, from comedy, romance and of course the singing. "Who Wants To Be A Millionaire" and "Will Did You Eva" are just a few to say the least of some of the songs that will be preformed.
The cast of Tipperary Musical Society would like to congratulate Maeve O'Sullivan and Niall Murphy on their recent wedding. The couple shared vows on Wednesday, December 29, 2010 in a beautiful ceremony in Bansha and later family and friends gathered at Dundrum House Hotel to celebrate the marriage.
Maeve who hails from Bansha played the part of Babette in last year's production of Disney's Beauty and the Beast. The TMS wish you both health and happiness for now and the rest of your married life together.
The TMS would like to take this opportunity to thank all our sponsors, fans, friends, members and of course you, our audience for your continued support in 2010. With out you all, Beauty and the Beast would not have been the success it was, not to mention any of our other shows and productions. Remember keep an eye out for posters about the show and dates for when tickets go on sale. We look forward now to High Society and a great 2011.
