Mary Immaculate College Dramatic Arts Society celebrate 20th anniversary
Mary Immaculate College Dramatic Arts Society (MIDAS) is a well-established society in Mary Immaculate College (MIC), Limerick. For over 20 years the society has aimed to introduce students to the world of the dramatic arts and to help students to discover, to develop and to share their talents in all aspects of theatre life.
MIDAS celebrate 20th anniversary this year by hosting a ball. This event welcomes members past and present to come together and celebrate all aspects of MIDAS over the past 20 years.
Dr. Michael Finneran, Head of the Department of Drama and Theatre Studies at MIC is very much looking forward to the event. Michael said, “We’re taking the opportunity of the anniversary of 20 years of our musical theatre productions to have a party to celebrate all aspects of student drama and performance work at Mary Immaculate College. With the support of the of a group of dedicated alumni, the Dept. of Drama & Theatre Studies and MISU, we want to get former members to get the word out amongst their College friends and to gather everyone to join us for what will be a memorable celebration of student theatrical life on Thursday, April 18 2019.”
MIDAS has staged numerous plays, cabarets and musicals over the years and every production is led by the students, who take on roles in directing, choreography, stage management, musical direction and more. After many years of performing in the Halla at MIC, MIDAS moved their annual musical production across the campus in 2012 to the newly opened Lime Tree Theatre.
