Boyle Musical Society have excelled each year in providing entertaining, creative productions and a forum for some of the amazing performing talent in the area. Their 2010 production of "Jesus Christ Superstar" was a stunner and will be remembered for all of the right reasons.
At last night's Oscars equivalent in the Glen Eagle Hotel, Killarney - the AIMS Awards 2010 - Boyle were rewarded with 3 Major Awards, Best Show in the Gilbert Section, Best overall Show, and Best Male Singer - Adrian King. The group continued to win runners-up for Best Director, Frank O'Mahoney, Best Front Of House and Best Technical Award.
The Award Results are a fantastic achievement for our Boyle Musical Society. The 2010 Boyle Musical was performed, as always, by and entirely amateur cast and crew and the Awards are a fitting tribute to the entire dedicated, talented Boyle Musical Society cast and crew.
Congratulations to each and every one, I know Boyle is proud of you!
