It had been a number of years since they got on stage due to the pandemic but there was a great feeling of exhilaration when they finally tread the boards on Tuesday, again Wednesday and finally last night (Thursday).

For up to three hours a cast of 109, including 36 children and 25 teenagers, performed to their heart's content in a variety show called ‘A Musical Journey’ in the INEC.

It had been a huge team effort from months of rehearsals to hours of planning and costume making as well as set design and more!

Songs and performances included Matilda, The Greatest Showman, Beauty & the Beast, Hairspray, Dear Evan Hansen and many more in what was an epic production.

"We got great support from the schools," speaking about the first show, Linda O'Donoghue, PRO for the Killarney Musical Society, told the Killarney Advertiser.

"They came to see their classmates and teachers."

She added that all audiences "were very appreciative also" and that there were fabulous spot prizes and vouchers and goodies from local businesses, up for grabs.

Marie Slattery O’Sullivan prepared fabulous spot prizes.

"She got vouchers and goodies from local businesses and prepared a huge hamper for first prize which was won by Rosie Healy from Glenflesk. There were four other great prizes also."
