What is The Commitments about?
The Commitments is the story of a young working-class music fan, Jimmy Rabbitte, who shaped an unlikely group of inexperienced musicians into Dublin's finest ever soul band.
The musical follows two frustrated members of a synthesiser band who turn to the local music expert, Jimmy, for help. Jimmy places a classified advert in a music paper and auditions several wannabes before settling on the new lineup, The Commitments. The band gets to know each other and their instruments and holds rehearsals for their first gig. But, just when they start to make a name for themselves, the band falls apart! The singer has entered Eurovision, the saxophonist has leanings toward a career in jazz, and the backing singers are hooking up with the middle-aged horn player!
The Commitments cast and creative team
Roddy Doyle wrote The Commitments in 1986, which was later adapted from the original novel to a film in 1991. The musical, also written by Doyle, began previews in 2013.
Andrew Linnie directs the current production alongside Movement Director Denise Ranger, Lighting Designer Jason Taylor, Sound Designer Rory Madden, Set Designer Tim Blazdell, and Wardrobe Designer and Supervisor Alice Lessing. In addition, Alan Williams takes on the task of Musical Supervisor and Arranger.
The Commitments features a top-notch cast. James Killeen plays Jimmy Rabbitte, and Nigel Pivaro - best known for playing Terry Duckworth in Coronation Street - plays his Da. Other cast members include Ian Mcintosh, Stuart Reid, Ciara Mackey, Michael Mahony, Ryan Kelly, Connor Litten, Guy Freeman, Stephen O'Riain, Ronnie Yorke, Eve Kitchingman, and Sarah Gardiner.

Top 5 Musicals To Beat Those End Of Summer Blues!
British summertime; There’s nothing quite like it. Endless days meandering around the capital, sipping cider in quaint beer gardens and blissful evenings watching the sun set over the Thames.
The changing season brings crisp winds, abundant rainfall and chunky sweaters. The nights stretch longer, the leaves float down and the heat of the sun mellows and fades.

Youth-heavy cast announced for The Commitments
Roddy Doyle's novel-turned-film and now West End musical about a North Dublin Soul band, The Commitments, has announced the casting line up for the upcoming Palace Theatre show. As in the plot itself The Commitments will introduce an array of fresh, young and exciting talent, alongside established musical theatre performers. The producers felt it was important to recruit and unleash a cast that is as hungry and in some cases raw as the characters they are playing.

A new generation of talent energises new musical The Commitments
Currently in rehearsals and based on the 1991 film of the same name, The Commitments musical will begin previews at the Palace Theatre late next month. Novelist Roddy Doyle on whose original book the film was based, says of the youthful cast: "What amuses me most is the fact that only one of them was born when I wrote the novel." With most of the cast hot out of drama school the show will be a great platform for their talent and a springboard for their burgeoning careers.
