A list of Athenry Musical Society Show's 2000-2013 by Ronan Killeen (Revised 2018)

Athenry Musical Society's production of 'My Fair Lady' 2004. The scene is 'Ascot' with the Ascot Chorus for the
song 'Ascot Gavotte'.

In the 1950's, the Athenry Musical Society was known as the Athenry Choral Society which performed Gilbert and
Sullivan operettas such as HMS Pinafore; The Mikado; Trail by Jury and The Gondoliers.
After the 1950's the musical society was dormant. However, fast forward to the December of 1997 when a variety
concert was staged in Athenry with a group of singers singing various tunes from musicals. It was proposed 
in 1999 that the musical would be revived by Olive Marie Gardiner. 
Subsequently, a permanent committee was formed and the musical society was brought back into life again. Below is a list of show's done in the 2000's.
