Marian Choral Society to bring Evita to life in Tuam Marian Choral Society to bring Evita to life in Tuam

After more than four decades of performing on stage, the Tuam-based Marian Choral Society are embarking on their latest challenge, with plans to  stage Evita in the autumn.

While they have announced details of the new production, they have yet to ringfence a cast for the epic. Auditions will take place over the coming weeks.

Chairperson Stuart Barrows told The Tribune that it was an exciting challenge for the group and expressed his delight that so many new members had joined the society.

The Marian Choral Society welcome back Ronan Lardner as Director for Evita, as well as Shane Farrell as Musical Director. And Jay Molyneux is on board for the first time as Choreographer for this production.

The musical will run from Tuesday, October 31, to Saturday, November 4, and will be staged in St Jarlath’s College Hall, Tuam.

The Marian Choral Society had never missed an annual production since their formation back in 1977 –  until Covid struck. The pandemic meant that they had to abandon their plans for a couple of years – similar to other artistic groups.

Covid brought to an end a proud record of 43 consecutive productions, during which time they never missed a year. In fact, in 2013, they embarked on two shows to mark Tuam’s 400 celebrations.
