Boyle Musical Society update
At Boyle Musical Society AGM earlier in the summer, Chairperson Rhona McGrath thanked all who had been involved in last year’s show, ‘The Addams Family’. The show was another critical success and she extended a sincere thanks to the committee for their continued support and hard work all year round. She also thanked the production team and all of the backstage, technical, make-up, costumes, props and hair teams, not forgetting of course, the wonderful cast of ‘The Addams Family’. In addition to the 33 cast members, another 52 people were involved behind the scenes, during the production.
Rhona also thanked all those who have helped out in anyway,
