Carnew Musical Society – Sister Act  50th Anniversary Year Production


With a lot of hard grafting done and some work still to do by cast and crew, there is a great deal of excitement building up in anticipation for Carnew Musical Society’s production of Sister Act. St. Brigid’s Hall will rock to the music of this fabulous show, including songs such as Take me too Heaven, Raise your Voice, Fabulous Baby, Sister Act, Spread the love around and Sunday Fever.


As well as great music, Sister Act is hilariously funny and will be a great hit with the audiences. Naoimh Penston from Arklow, is both Musical Director and with the role of Dolores is teaching the nuns and the men of course…how to groove, while Graham Finnerty is teaching us all how to move to the groove as choreographer and Michael Dunbar as director is getting out the dramatic action and comedy .
