JW Productions bring new musical 'Mr Carter' to the stage in Fethard

JW Productions have been incredibly busy rehearsing for the exciting world premiere of Mr Carter The Musical, an exciting new venture for the local production company with Stefan J. Doyle writing the book, music and lyrics for this new show.

The musical is set in New York in the 1940's. A company Owner Samuel Carter and his wife Cecily having lost their fortune with a run of unsuccessful shows, decide to make one last stab at it. The only problem is that they don't have a cast due to their failed reputation so it's up to him, his wife Cecily and sheer luck to save the day and their company.

This on the edge of your seat musical is a whirlwind of dramatic and hilarious Love affairs, with high energy tap dancing that will blow yours socks off.

Taking on the title role of Mr. Carter is local man David Cronin who is the well known and loved owner of Cronins Garage in Nine-mile House.

Playing the role of the aspiring young star to be, Liddy, is Holly-Jean Williamson who is well known in the theatre world for her acting and singing and now gets to show off her dancing skills in this new explosive high energy tap musical.

Robert Donnelly is playing the charismatic Bill as well as being the choreographer who will astound you with his beautiful tap dancing.
