Full cast announced for the World premiere production of

ANGELA’S ASHES – THE MUSICAL

which will premiere in Ireland this July

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. The production will play Lime Tree Theatre, Limerick from 6 -15 July.

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 role of Frank will be played by Eoin Cannon whose career has included The Woman In White (Palace Theatre, London – alongside Michael Crawford and Michael Ball), The Wizard Of OzJerry Springer – The Opera, Michael Collins – A Musical Drama, Grease and the European tour of Beauty And The Beast as well as performing as a featured lead singer in Riverdance. Television work includes Fair City (RTE) and The Bloody Irish (PBS).

As previously announced West End star Jacinta Whyte will return home to take on the role of Angela. Dublin born Jacinta Whyte has made her mark on the international stage performing in some of the biggest musicals of all time including, Les MiserablesBlood Brothers and Miss Saigon. From the moment Jacinta walked onto the stage as a child in the title role of Annie in the original production in London’s West End, it was clear that a musical star had been born.

The main cast will also include: 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.

ANGELA’S ASHES – THE MUSICAL has that rare gift of bringing an audience to tears one minute, laughing out loud the next – by turns, deeply moving and riotously funny, this new musical promises to be one of the major theatrical events in Ireland in 2017.
