Wexford Light Opera Society won the overall award at the Carrick-on-Suir Music Theatre Festival for the third time at the Strand Theatre in Carrick-on-Suir last night (Sunday).
The Society's performance of hits from well known musicals, ranging from Chess and Billy Elliot to Oliver, beat off the competition from Tipperary, Thurles and Carrick-on-Suir Musical Societies to retain the Dick Meany Trophy.
This was the third year of the weekend long Music Theatre Festival. Well known theatrical director, actor and creative director Tony Finnegan was the Festival's adjudicator.
