The Letterkenny Musical Society (LMS) has announced a change for their 2018 production. The group have decided to replace their intended production of Singin’ in the Rain with Dolly Parton’s musical 9 to 5 instead.

There’s no business like show business and the LMS are in the business of only producing superb shows.

We have been thoroughly enjoying our initial preparations for Singin’ in the Rain, but unfortunately, due to scheduling of our very busy Principals and committee, we find ourselves fighting with the one thing that can’t be rearranged… time.

Rather than rushing the spectacular production we had planned, and in order to avoid unnecessary pressure on our cast, we have decided to shelve this show… for now. We will continue this project at a future time, but rather than going Singin’ in the Rain this February, we’re excited to announce that we shall be taking you all on a journey to Nashville with Dolly Parton’s Infamous musical, 9-5.

Think sass, think dancing, think big voices and big lungs… 9-5 will blow your minds with a comedy filled story of three incredible women who take on the ‘Big Man’. With a superb script and addictive soundtrack, 9-5 will have you dancing in the aisles on An Grianán Theatre.

We are continuing our choral rehearsals and are happy to announce that auditions for all roles will take place in the next two weeks. Our registration for chorus has been extended for 2 weeks also, so if you fancy getting your 9-5 on, come join us!
