Thursday 30th March 2017 - Saturday 1st April 2017


Presented by Limerick Musical Society

Limerick Musical Society will this year stage the classic musical Chess!

Written by Tim Rice and ABBA’s Björn Ulvaeus and Benny Andersson, Chess has one of the greatest musical theatre scores of all time including One Night in Bangkok, Pity The Child, Anthem, You And I and, of course, I Know Him So Well, which became a number one hit for Elaine Paige and Barbara Dickson.

The story – two of the world’s greatest chess masters battle it out at the world chess championships, but their greatest contest is really for the love of one woman.

Amidst political intrigue and international conspiracies, the American and the Russian fight to win the heart of Florence Vassy in a romantic triangle that mirrors the heightened passions of the Cold War all set to an explosive musical score noted by Time Magazine as “one of the best score ever produced”.

The Production is well underway.  Strongs leads, an energetic and exciting cast, a superbly talented orchestra have been all assembled! A new, innovative set and costumes have been designed. Rehersals start end of November. This show promises to be a visual and musical spectacular from this award winning musical society!

Directed by Des Henn, Musical Direction by Maire Keary-Scanlon, Choreography by Barbara Meany
