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. AIMS provides many services to its members, ranging from help and advice in choosing shows, resolving any difficulties that they may face, running various workshops on all aspects of theatre, through to an adjudication and awards scheme that is constantly pushing forward the standards of musical theatre.
Membership of AIMS is open to any society that is involved in Musical Theatre in Ireland, subject to their membership application being approved by the AIMS ruling body - the National Council.
The annual AIMS weekend “Seminar” is celebrated in June. The highlight of this weekend is the announcement of the winners of the various awards.
The “Seminar” is attended by just under 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.

Linked through our university background, we are a mix of both current and former students, hailing from a range of courses - including English and Drama, Medicine, History, Classics, Music, Economics and Science. Our experience is varied - amateur theatre, student theatre, workshops, professional training, technical training and theoretical study. Our members have experience in corporeal mime, musical theatre singing and dance, rehearsed reading, Shakespeare, devising and directing, as well as photography and lighting, sound, visual art and set design. A desire to push our abilities and our own personal boundaries has brought this group together.
