New Musical Society?

I LIKE nothing better than a chat with Ben Corcoran. What the man does not know about video production is not worth knowing.

We were up in the balcony of the TLT recently, Patrick Leddy doing his stuff in the lighting and sound area to our right and the idea suddenly sprung up - wouldn't it be great to see a Drogheda Musical Society being formed to pack out a venue like the TLT.

In front of us were the school stars performers, singers like Saoirse Kavanagh and Rachel Lynch and many more. The talent of tomorrow in this town.

Indeed, Ben could even be in the band, people will remember him from such groups as Dawn and Tracks (he was a legendary guitar player, probably still is).

What about 'Mamma Mia' as the first production?
