Congratulations to Barry Ryan on his success in Killarney.
Barry won the Best Stage Management Award for his work on “Seussical”. This was Barry’s first nomination and first Award. Barry is a very valued member of Avonmore and he has been working Back Stage with Avonmore for 24 years now.
Martina was nominated for Best Choreography.  A wonderful achievement for this young lady who choreographed her very first musical this year. I’m sure she will have many more nominations in her career which is only starting.
This was Jim Furlong’s second time to be nominated in 3 years. This time he was a runner up. On the last occassion he was triumphant winning the Award for his Front Of House Work on “Some Like It Hot” in 2007. Jim works tirelessly every year on our behalf. Thanks Jim and Well Done.

It’s the ’80s. Robbie Hart lives in his grandmother’s basement in New Jersey and sings in a wedding band. His dreams of being a singer/songwriter are long gone, replaced now by a burning desire to find the right girl and settle down. When his fiancee leaves him standing at the altar, he becomes a wedding planner’s worst nightmare, taking out his bitterness on stage until his eye and heart turn to a new friend, Julia, but she’s engaged to a wealthy Wall Street broker. The Wedding Singer is a well known popular comedy film starring Adam Sandler and Drew Barrymore.
We are delighted to have Bill Stafford, Mairead Mc Kenna and Martina Lynch back again as our production team this year and we really look forward to working with them again.

Avonmore will need children to take part in “The Wizard of Oz”. The children must be aged between 8 and 13 years of age.
We will be holding a workshop on Sat 24th Sept at 4pm. This will be a 2 hour workshop which will give children a taste of the choreography and singing that will be required in the show.
