Loughrea Musical Society are excited and proud to present the Western region’s premiere of Green Day’s American Idiot. American Idiot is a ground-breaking, alternative rock concert style show. It tells the story of three friends Will, Tunny and Johnny who have become disaffected by their media saturated suburban life and seek to flee their stifled lives.

Loughrea Musical Society
With an infectious energy from the start, the cast and chorus rock out to well-known Green Day numbers including American Idiot, Boulevard of Broken Dreams, When September Comes and the haunting 21 Guns. This immensely talented cast includes Louis Brennan in the role of Tunny, Joseph Ryan as Johnny and Gearóid Treacy as Will. Loughrea are also fortunate to have the beautiful voice and talent of Sarah Corcoran play the role of Whatsername and the society are delighted to welcome back Today FM’s Fergal Darcy for his third show with LMS as he takes on the role of hell raiser St. Jimmy.

Loughrea Musical society was established in 1945 and is an inclusive, community based society who have been entertaining the audiences of Loughrea with musical theatre and pantomime for the past 72 years. Rose Fahy Hays, chairperson of Loughrea Musical Society has been involved for over 30 years. “This is a truly ground-breaking show. The energy and talent on that stage have surpassed all my expectations. It is a show that is thought provoking and perhaps controversial, but it is without a doubt and exceptional piece of theatre and not to be missed. I am proud to be involved in such a fantastic society with a wonderful cast and crew. Everyone is in for a real treat with this musical, American Idiot. The music is absolutely fantastic and will be played by an exceptional band under the baton of Musical Director, Shane Farrell.”

Loughrea Musical Society are also delighted to welcome back Director and Choreographer Sarah Griffin, whose vision and imagination for this show, knows no bounds. This is a visually and mentally stimulating show. As soon as the audience take their seats, even before the show begins, they will be questioning, wondering and wanting to know more.

Green Day’s American Idiot runs 19th, 20th and 22nd April at the Temperance Hall, Barrack Street, Loughrea.
