Now in its 4th year, Waterford Musical Society return to the Theatre Royal Waterford from 2nd-5th May, with the classic musical, Fiddler on the Roof. This society has gone from strength to strength, since a few like minded individuals got together to form the society. With the intention of returning to basic community ideals, at the core of Waterford Musical Society is a huge drive, run on a volunteer basis. They pride themselves on an all-inclusive membership, utilising local talent and local businesses to deliver top class musical productions.

This award winning production team coupled with a steadfast and hard working committee & cast, are sure to bring yet another top quality production to the stage. "WMS are a 100% local theatre group and we are very proud of that fact" says chairperson and founding member, Seneiva Magill. "We utilise local talent on stage and off, use skilled local production and back room teams who have a vast and varied skill set and we use 100% local businesses for anything that helps take the production from an idea to the stage".

Directed by Bill Stafford, Musical Direction by Wayne Brown, Choreography by Margaret Kavanagh, Set Design by Ben Hennessey and Lighting Design by Eoin Sheridan, this musical will showcase many new members in both leading roles and ensemble .

Fundraising in any society is vitally important. WMS would like to thank the many local businesses who are very generous with their support each and every year. The society are very lucky that the cast also give 100% commitment in helping with all fundraising activities. Without this huge community effort, they simply wouldn't be able to get the show to the stage of the Theatre Royal.

Box office bookings have been very strong from the outset as Fiddler on the Roof is such a classic piece of musical theatre, so if you haven't booked your seat yet, do so and without delay as this will no doubt be another sellout production for this hard working and talented theatrical group.
