THE LONESOME WEST

In a small town that's fast becoming the murder capital of the world, two brothers battle it out over a dead father, an inheritance and a packet of crisps.

Sadistic, dangerous, inflammatory and hilarious.  Welcome to The Lonesome West.

The Lonesome West is the third instalment in Martin McDonagh's award-winning Leenane Trilogy.  It tells the story of Coleman and Valene Connor, whose dysfunctional co-habitation plays out an hilariously dark vision of the human condition.

THE FULL MONTY

In this Americanised musical stage version adapted from the 1997 British film of the same name, six unemployed Buffalo steelworkers, low on both cash and prospects, decide to present a strip act at a local club after seeing their wives’ enthusiasm for a touring company of Chippendales. One of them, Jerry, declares that their show will be better than the Chippendales dancers because they’ll go “the full monty”—strip all the way.

Directed by Christine Scarry, with musical direction by David Wray and choreography by Mary MacDonagh.

CABARET will be staged at The Helix Theatre from Saturday, 30th to Sunday, 31st January, 2016, featuring the students of the Irish College of Music Theatre.

OPEN AUDITIONS for National Tour of LISTEN TO MY HEART

A journey deep inside your heart can be thrilling, unexpected, even life changing - and always worth the trip. The music of composer David Friedman captures this journey with hope, inspiration, humour and compassion in this exhilarating and moving revue of his music: LISTEN TO MY HEART, which originally ran Off Broadway, Upstairs at Studio 54, and was subsequently staged all over the USA and internationally.

SWEENEY TODD

KMS welcome back director Christine Scarry after directing last year’s hugely successful award-winning production of “Michael Collins – A Musical Drama”.

We had a truly special night with Tony Nominee and Emmy Award Winner, Liz Callaway, who so generously shared her expertise with us.

Thank you to all of the participants who sang so beautifully (and fearlessly!), and to the lovely, supportive audience of observers, to David Wray for a terrific job on piano and, most especially, to Liz herself.
