It is with a hype of anticipation that the students from the CIT Musical Society, winners of the CIT Best New Society 2011, have the pleasure of inviting you to their upcoming production 'A New Brain' which will be staged in the Stack Theatre of the Cork School of Music (CSM).

The students will have their first showing on the 23rd of November at 8pm when they run the preview.  The next opportunity to catch the talented scholars will be on the 25th at 8pm and there will be two showings on the 26th November at 3pm and 8pm. Tickets are priced at €15 and €10 concession are available at the Cork School of Music main office or by emailing musical@citsocieties.ie

Following the success of their first production 'Tick, tick...BOOM!’ in February last they are proud to present a show with an all singing, all dancing cast of thirteen and a live band/orchestra - all students of CIT! Ciaran Bermingham will again take the director’s chair for this production. Ciaran is a well known Irish actor who recently appeared in HBO's 'A Game of Thrones' and who will return to the set for the third season. Both cast and orchestra are made up of CIT students from CIT Crawford College of Art & Design; CIT Bishopstown Campus; and the CSM; and it promises to be a very exciting production.

CIT student Brian Raftery is delighted to be playing the lead role. “I feel incredibly privileged to have been given not only the lead in such an amazing musical, but also for the opportunity to perform alongside such an outstanding cast.”


‘A New Brain’ is a new musical written by William Finn. Finn's music score ranges from the hilarious to the ravishing, and all points in between. The main character, Gordon Scwhinn, is a frustrated composer who is suddenly faced with a potentially terminal brain illness. This unlikely subject bursts with humanity and humour.
