The Story of Kilmainham Inchicore Musical Society
After an initial meeting of former members of the old St Michael’s Musical Society with some friends; it was decided to gauge the interest in staging a musical again for the communities of Kilmainham & Inchicore.
From this meeting in 2015, the society as you know it now – Kilmainham, Inchicore Musical Society (KIMS) was born.
The first show staged was “Calamity Jane” , 3 nights in the Inchicore College of Further Education to packed houses each night!
The following year (2016) we staged the classic “Guys & Dolls” for 4 nights, which was also a huge success. We followed this up again with Cole Porter’s fantastic musical comedy ‘Anything Goes‘, the momentum was there!
Since then we’ve been staging a musical every year (aside from the COVID years) – we’ve also put on a couple of plays in the off-season and look forward to staging some more!
KIMS has a total membership of 50+ and is growing each and every year. The society is always open to new members for future productions!
