FOLLOWING weeks of intense preparation the eight teams taking part in the Tullamore Sportslink Broadway Battle of the Musicals are ready to do battle on Sunday night October 29th in the Tullamore Court hotel at 8.00pm.

Each team will perform 6 minutes of 8 very popular Broadway shows in an effort to be crowned winners on the night.

Competition will be intense as many current and past members of Tullamore Musical society joined by Camogie, Ladies Football and GAA players join forces to do battle for the top spot.

The shows include, in order of appearance on the night Mama Mia, We Will Rock You, Saturday Night Fever, Back to the 80's, Hairspray, Grease, Motown and The Commitments.

This decision on the running order of the shows was eagerly awaited by the teams and was greeted with great excitement at a pre-show get together in Digans' Bar on Friday night. This was done by MC for the Battle of the Musicals Colin Hughes .

The team sponsors have also been finalised and have been introduced to their respective teams.

The sponsors are Flanagan Properties Ltd, John Flanagan Developments Ltd, The Flower Bar @ Bennies, Tullamore Camogie Club, Tullamore GAA, Capital Securities, Digans Bar and Tullamore Credit Union.

The selection of the winning team will be done by a specially chosen panel, of highly experienced judges.

On the night also, there will be an opportunity for each individual audience member to have a say. Details on how this will happen can only be revealed on the night.

Based on the current demand for tickets and the interest the event is generating in GAA, Musical Society, Tullamore town and media circles, the organizing committee at this stage is confident that the show will be a sell out early in the week and hopes to be able to accommodate the numbers hoping to attend.

The committee wishes to express its gratitude to all who have contributed so much time and effort to ensure that it will be a night to remember for all and looks forward to welcoming everyone there on the night.
