Starlight Express

Hot on the heels of the astonishing sold-out success of Les Misérables, MIDAS returns to the Lime Tree stage for the fifth time, and with its most ambitious musical project yet.

Andrew Lloyd Webber’s Starlight Express is a magical story of trains, speed and song. In a little boy’s dream, his toy trains come to life for a spectacular race across America. The competition between steam, electric, and diesel engines is fast and fierce with entries from across the world. In the end, the underdog Rusty the Steam train, a small steam engine with a heart of gold, defeats all his rivals and wins the race and with it the hand of the lovely first class coach, Pearl.

Starlight Express made history by becoming one of the longest-running West End shows after it opened in 1984. It has a vibrant rock score containing numbers such as Rolling Stock, AC/DC, There’s a Light at the end of the Tunnel, and the eponymous Starlight Express. But the show made its name for its fast pace, amazing visuals and innovative staging, which has to be seen to be believed.

Rarely performed, this is a show with memorable music, costumes and staging. It will feature a large company of students of the College, directed this year by Lee Dillon, with choreography by Amanda Kearns, musical direction by Noel Lennon and with Dr Michael Finneran as producer. Given the commitment, energy and passion that this company has become renowned for, do not miss this Irish première. Get your skates on and book now!
