Yet again the local talent shone brightly as Killarney Musical Society put on another superb show over the last few days.

Audiences in the INEC over the three nights weren’t left disappointed as the opening night on Tuesday was a stunning take on the original ‘The Sound of Music’. And again on Wednesday and Thursday night the energy didn’t dip as the cast proved what an outstanding talented bunch they are.

Those that were lucky enough to have the opportunity of being part of the audience were treated to some great entertainment, and for those who didn’t get the chance to see, what a pity, Orna Cleary O’Shea explained to the Killarney Advertiser this week.

“This latest production by KMS is up there with the best,” she said.

“The talent, all local, was exceptional and truly inspirational. To see so many wonderful members both young and old giving it their all for every performance was a joy to see, and we congratulate and thank you for bringing this iconic musical to life once again.”

Their matinee on Tuesday was also a massive success as it was completely sold out with an audience 2,000.

“It was Kerry schools mainly and a fabulous start of the run. Some outstanding  performances by cast left the audiences on their feet crying for more at the end of each performance,” she said. “Cast and crew are taking a well-deserved break for this week and we wish them well.”
