*About the Award *View Recipients
 
In 2010 Little Sparrows produced ANNIE, in 2012 OLIVER! both exclusively for the Sheila Toomey Award fund but, in 2013 most profits for PETER PAN THE MUSICAL (6,000) went to to their home, the Athenaeum for the restoration of the Auditorium & Stage and the Lighting & Sound Department. However the exit collection and raffle proceeds went to the Sheila Award. The musical SMIKE (based on Charles Dicken's Nicholas Nickleby) was produced in March 2015 .... and SHEILA'S STARS (a Gala in aid of the Sheila Toomey Award) was held on 9 April 2016 starring many of the Award recipients since its inception in 2003.
Finally, the Trustees of the Sheila Award are proud to announce that they are presenting CATS THE MUSICAL at the ATH on 16-18 FEBRUARY 2017.
