Celebrate 100 years of musical magic

IT is incredible to think that this year represents the 100th Anniversary of one of Northern Ireland's most successful and prolific amateur Musical Societies, the Ulster Operatic Company.

Over the years the company has enthralled Northern Ireland audiences with the best that Musical Theatre has to offer, including classics such as Fiddler on the Roof, West Side Story, South Pacific, Oklahoma and more recently with modern sensations such as High School Musical and Rent.

To celebrate it's Centenary year the company has chosen to revive one of the greatest Musicals of all time - 'Guy's and Dolls' which is also celebrating the 60th Anniversary of it's original Broadway Production.

Guy's and Dolls tells the unforgettable story of Sinners, Show Girls and the Salvation Army. This multiple award-winning show features classic songs such as 'Luck be a Lady' and 'Sit Down,You're Rocking the Boat' and who could forget the show stopping 'Crap Shooters Ballet'.

To bring this masterpiece to the stage once more the Ulster Operatic has assembled some of the biggest names in local musical theatre, film and dance. The cast includes Mary Frances Loughran, Angela Harding, Gerry McBrian and Kerry Rooney.

It promises to be an memorable occasion when the Ulster Operatic Company take to the Opera House stage to celebrate one hundred years of magic with another unforgettable show.

Guys and Dolls will be performed at the Grand Opera House from October 12 - 16 with tickets available from the Grand Opera House Box Office on 9024 1919.
