This is Rush Musical Society...
RMS receive key to their New Home... "The Station House"
The Success of the society was given a much needed encouragement,
when it was the first musical society to be awarded a licence to
operate a former Garda Station from the OPW as a permanent home from
which to expand its activities. Along with achieving charitable
status this is a stamp of approval from state departments which will
allow RMS to expand its calendar year and range of activities in and
for the community of Rush.
The current layout of the building does not give us use of all the
space available so we plan to carry out internal alterations over
the next few months. This is where we hope you can help.
In order to secure the future of the society and to carry out the
redevelopment of the “Station House” RMS is seeking support from the
community. You can support RMS through any of a number of options
• ‘Friends of RMS’
• ‘Buy a Brick’
• Support ongoing RMS fundraising activities
• Business &Corporate Sponsorship
• Charitable Donation

Future Development Plans
Having a new rehearsal space on the main street in the town allows
for the society to expand activities throughout the year.
September sees the society begin the show season with a set of
workshops in order to encourage old and new members alike to up
skill in areas such as acting styles, stagecraft, audition
techniques singing and dance to name a few. These are always well
attended and are open to all in the community.
RMS Youth Theatre
To encourage the participation in musical theatre RMS plans to
provide a performance platform for the wealth of young talent in
Rush at an even earlier age. RMS Youth will be aimed at 13 plus age
group and will present annual productions in Rush under the
direction of an experienced production team. As well as the obvious
benefits to the town of keeping our young people engaged this
initiative will also ensure the society has a throughput of young
trained aspiring performers participating in our annual productions
into the future.
The first step towards will be a Christmas Pantomime to be staged in
the Millbank Theatre This December in collaboration with Rush Drama
Group. Casting for the pantomime will take place in September and
will be open to youth from 13 years up to adult members.
