The stage crew behind Carrick-on-Suir Musical Society's upcoming production of Godspell are busy making the set at the moment and are looking for a car to fit on the stage of the Strand Theatre for the show.

Rehearsals are in full swing for the show and it's a busy time overall for the Musical Society.

The Society's Academy of Performing Arts got back into action last week with a group of around 90 children and teenagers ranging in ages from 5 to 14 attending classes.

Some more places are available so check (051) 645050 this week.

All was revealed at the Academy about the upcoming production of Annie. Auditions for parts will take place next week.

The Society committee had a meeting last week and a vote of sympathy was passed on the death of Fiona and Jodie Bartley's grandfather. The fundraising sub-committee are planning a major draw in the run up to the bingo night on Good Friday in The Strand.

The Society is also planning to extend the Academy into summer camps this summer for both primary and secondary schools.

The cast of Godspell will go bowling on February 12 and finish the outing with a quiz night in The Strand.

The Society has been busy booking acts for the Strand Theatre.

"The Hot House Flowers" will perform there on February 25, Aslan are booked for April 24 and "The Illegals" with Niamh Kavanagh will perform a tribute to Fleetwood Mac and The Eagles on May 13.

A Michael Buble tribute will take the stage on Easter Sunday night, April 24 and in May the Society hopes Christy Moore will pay a visit.

The Society hopes the public, as always, will support these concerts.
