Cast and Crew List, Finian’s Rainbow

Finian’s Rainbow was performed at City Hall by Truro Amateur Operatic & Dramatic Society. It was produced by Mavis Ward who produced more than sixteen of TOADS productions. The musical tells the story of a pot of gold, stolen from a leprechaun by a young couple in the mythical town of Glocca Morra, USA. They flee to the South and settle there, pursued endlessly by the leprechaun. Finian’s Rainbow is a musical whose debut on Broadway in 1947 ran for 725 performances. The musical was later adapted for film. It was directed by Francis Ford Coppola and released in 1968. An earlier film animation starring Frank Sinata, Louis Armstrong and Petula Clark was never completed, in part due to McCarthy-era trials, in which two of the films starred refused to testify meaning funding was withdrawn.
