About A.I.M.S.

         Another AIMS Award for Boyle Musical Society.

 

Boyle Musical Society were nominated in two categories in the Sullivan section of the 2020 AIMS Awards for 'Sister Act', winning the award for Best Technical (Sound, lighting and sets) and narrowly losing out to Fermoy Musical Society, who picked up the award this year for Best Stage Management.

 

The virtual Awards ceremony  took place on September 19th and Diarmuid Beirne, who represented the Society by video link, thanked and congratulated all on the technical teams, Tom Cleary, Nigel Cleary, Paul Kelly and Indigo Lighting, Vinnie Higgins of Redhouse Prodctions for sound and Brendan McGee for effects, Vivienne Caldbeck, John Wright and team for set design and construction and Enda Commons and team for stage management.

 

This is Boyle Musical Society's ninth AIMS Award. We previously picked up awards in 2007, 2010, 2014 and 2016 along with receiving nominations in 2012 and 2016.

 

The Association of Irish Musical Societies (AIMS) provides a voice to musical theatre in Ireland. Over 130 musical societies, throughout the whole of Ireland, are members of AIMS – this relates to around 14,000 people directly involved with musical theatre and an audience base of around 1.2 million.

We would like to thank all who were involved in any way with our production of 'Sister Act'. All of you are winners of this award.

 

We would also like to congratulate all our Musical Society friends who were both winners and nominees in this year's AIMS Awards and we hope to see all of them on stage soon and indeed we look forward to seeing you, our audience in the very near future.

Adjudication & Awards Scheme

The Adjudication & Awards Scheme is one of the most popular AIMS activities. The scheme is designed to constantly raise standards and push forward musical theatre in Ireland. With many analogies to the Oscars, the scheme rewards outstanding talent in different categories. Under this scheme, an adjudicator attends each participating show and provides a written critique.

At the end of each musical season in May, the adjudicator then draws up nominations for the awards based on the shows they have seen. In true Oscar fashion, the nominations cover all aspect of a performance, from Best Actor and Actress to Best Stage Management, Best Director to Best Overall Show etc., The nominations are then announced at a gala ceremony.

The AIMS Awards Weekend is celebrated annually in June. The highlight of this weekend is the announcement of the award winners in the Adjudication & Awards Scheme.

The Awards Weekend is attended by almost 1000 people and is the largest event of its kind held in Ireland. It brings together people who have a common love of musical theatre and provides a great social opportunity for members from different Societies to come together.
