Local Naas Girls Helen Spring & Carol Gleeson Co-Produce showband spectacular "The Voice Within" at the Moat Theatre
“The Voice Within - A Showband Story” is a brand new Irish play with music in 2 Acts written by company co-founders Carol Gleeson & Helen Spring.
Set in Donegal in the 1960’s golden era of music, the story follows an unassuming young man who finds himself at the helm of an up and coming showband. Garnering attention from two local girls, Tommy O’Grady struggles with his new found persona both on and off the stage, and the love triangle that ensues.
Through a series of memorable characters, we witness a snapshot in time when Ireland is finally starting to find its’ voice and when showband music is the revolutionary language of the people.
Alongside a live band, (under the musical direction of Dave McGauran) this nostalgic play includes hits such as “The Hucklebuck”, “Rock around the Clock” and “From the Candystore on the Corner to the Chapel on the Hill” among many others.
The play also features an original composition by singer/musician Owen C. Lynch, a title song “The Voice Within” (with lyrics by C. Gleeson & H. Spring).
