Shannon Musical Society will celebrate its 40th anniversary with a production of hit musical ‘The Wiz’ in February 2018.
Telling the classic tale of ‘The Wizard of Oz’ with a mix of rock, gospel, and soul music, this is the timeless tale of Dorothy’s adventures through the Land of Oz with her friends the Scarecrow, Lion and Tin Man.
SMS is also delighted to welcome the return of director Jessica Bray, Pamela McGlynn (choreographer), and musical director Carmel Griffin for this fun, modern musical that can be enjoyed by all audiences.
