TUB­BER­CURRY will be alive with the Sound of Mu­sic as the ac­claimed Phoenix Play­ers do their take on the iconic mu­si­cal which shot to fame in the six­ties.

This is the first mu­si­cal the Play­ers have done in a decade which makes it even more spe­cial.

Lo­cal director Tom Walsh is over­see­ing the pro­duc­tion, which is due to run in St Brigid’s Hall for 7 nights at the end of March.

The Play­ers are hold­ing an open night on Thurs­day for peo­ple to join the cast.

Tom said: “We’re run­ning an open night in St Brigid’s Hall to get peo­ple of all ages in­volved in the pro­duc­tion.

“Karen McKim from Cloona­cool is play­ing the main part of Maria.

“An­drew Flynn is our Mu­si­cal Director and ev­ery­one is look­ing for­ward to stag­ing the pro­duc­tion.

“Peo­ple of all ages can come along to the open night and there will be au­di­tions for chil­dren at a later date.

“There are 24 speak­ing parts and an­other 20 or 30 ex­tras.

“We have not done the Sound of Mu­sic be­fore and the last time we did a mu­si­cal was 10 years ago when we did My Fair Lady so it is well timed to do an­other one,” he added. The open night on Thurs­day be­gins at 8:30pm. All wel­come.
