Angela's Ashes the musical will premiere in Ireland this July Thu 6th – Sat 15th in The Lime tree theate.
In a major musical adaptation, for the very first time, Frank McCourt’s memoir ANGELA’S ASHES will, this summer, be brought to the stage in an emotional telling of a childhood in Limerick and beyond, featuring unforgettable songs and melodies, told with a rare lyricism and a warm inimitable sense of humour.
Pat Moylan Productions presents the world premiere of ANGELA’S ASHES – THE MUSICAL, an uplifting story of hope, fortitude and family. Directed by Thom Sutherland, with music and lyrics by Adam Howell and book by Paul Hurt, the production is based on the Pulitzer prize-winning book by Frank McCourt.
As his parents struggle to provide for him and his brothers in 1940s Ireland, we follow young Frank’s escapades and experiences in a Dickensian landscape peopled by a drunken father, a helpless mother, pompous priests, bullying schoolmasters, money-lenders and dancing-teachers, culminating in his defiant escape to a new life in America.
The main cast includes: Clare Barrett as Grandma, Karen Ardiff as Mrs Finucane, Marty Maguire as Malachy, Bryan Burroughs as Quasimodo, Emmet Byrne as Malachy Jnr., Elaine Hearty as Nora, Shane McDaid as Billy Heffernan, David O’Meara as Uncle Pat, Mark O’Regan as Mr Griffin and Brigid Shine as Theresa Carmody.
