WMS Award winning Waterford Musical Society are proud to present yet another piece of classic musical theatre with their 2017 production of "Man of La Mancha", May 2nd to 6th in Waterford’s Theatre Royal.

Based on Cervantes’ epic 17th-century novel Don Quixote, this is a remarkable, poignant, stirring musical. Set during the Spanish Inquisition, we encounter Miguel de Cervantes in prison, awaiting trial.

When his fellow prisoners try to take Cervantes’ belongings from him, including his prized manuscript, Cervantes proposes a trial in which he proves the merit of his manuscript through a re-enactment, enlisting his fellow prisoners as characters in his play.

Together, they tell the story of the aged Alonso Quijana who believes himself to be a knight, names himself Don Quixote, and pursues an obsessive quest to attain an impossible dream.

Against all odds, Quixote and his trusty squire Sancho Panza take to the road to seek out the good and innocent in a world filled with darkness and despair.

Man of La Mancha features such stirring songs as “Dulcinea” and the now famous “The Impossible Dream”.

This is a stirring musical drama full of light moments of humour yet asks meaningful questions of the audience.

You are guaranteed to leave the theatre with a sense of absolute wonderment
