THERE are only a few short weeks to go until it's curtain up for Wexford Light Opera Society's highly-anticipated production of 'Chess The Musical' at the National Opera House.

One of the most challenging shows to sing, WLOS last performed the musical to great acclaim at the old Theatre Royal in 1997, the performance receiving rave reviews.

'Chess the Musical' will take place at the National Opera House from April 27 to May 2.

The production team is the same for the Society's last two very successful productions, 'The Witches of Eastwick', and 'Sister Act', which was booked out completely before it even opened last year - with Director John Donnelly, Musical Director, Fintan Cleary, Choreographer, Nicole McDonald and Chorus Mistress, Eithne Corrigan.

The cast for this production features Tony Carty, Aileen Donohoe, Derek Collins, Naoimh Penston, Des Whelan, George Lawlor and Eric Hayes.

The booking office is now open, and patrons are advised to book early as WLOS expect a sellout.
