A message from our Chairperson.

It is my great pleasure to welcome you on behalf of the Leixlip Musical and Variety Group Committee, to our production of The Wedding Singer, a Musical Comedy. We are thrilled to present this fun show, and hope you enjoy every moment of it.

We would like to take this opportunity to express our sincere gratitude to the entire production team for their tireless effort and dedication for making this production a success. Their hard work has paid off, and we are grateful for each and every persons contributions.

We also want to thank the cast and crew who have put in countless hours of rehearsals to bring this production to life. Without their talent and passion, this production would not be possible.

Many of you will know, that LMVG originally cast this show and started rehearsals, back in 2020. Due to the pandemic, we weren’t able to bring you the show that year.

However we remember and acknowledge the work and efforts of many original cast members back then, who never managed to join us for the current production. You are all with us in spirit!

Thanks also to our long-standing patrons, sponsors and advertisers. Your contributions have been invaluable in making this production a reality, and we are grateful for your generosity. We would also like to note the support in 2022, of Kildare County Council — LMVG availed of a Local Property Tax Grant to make much-needed improvements to our stage.

Finally, we want to thank you — our audience — for your unwavering support and enthusiasm for musical theatre, right here in Leixlip. All of us at LMVG hope you enjoy The Wedding Singer, a Musical Comedy!

Sincerely, Judy Miller.

Your LMVG Committee in 2022 and 2023 is Judy Miller (Chairperson), Elaine Brunton (Vice Chairperson), Avril Doyle (Secretary), Anne Fitzpatrick (Treasurer), Lynn Brennan (PRO), Ciarán Austin and Ben Cole.

Ciarán Tighe, as Glen.

Growing up in a musical theatre family, naturally I have a biography as long as my arm. But, other than playing Boy 1 (Fiddler on the Roof) and Boy 4 (The Music Man) that was the extent of my experience up until a few years ago. 25 years later, my wife put “audition for a show” on a bucket list. I auditioned for the part of Dennis in LMVG’s Rock of Ages — I got the gig, and what a stellar job I did in such a critically acclaimed show! No, really, I was astonishing – my mam told me, so it must be true!!

Since, I have played Edward (Someone Who’ll Watch Over Me, Red Embers), Treat (Orphans), Kyle (Legally Blonde) and Ethan (The Full Monty). And now Glen, in The Wedding Singer — I really hope you enjoy the show. It’s incredibly funny and, with such an amazing team both on and off the stage, I have no doubt you will absolutely love it. And yes, you can quote me on that! That’s how confident I am!
