Rathnure Panto is ready to rock!

Enniscorthy Guardian - - NEWS -

WHILE the count­down to Christ­mas is ex­cit­ing enough, the count­down is well and truly on for the renowned Rathnure Panto, which has its first stag­ing this Sun­day night. For the past 24 years, Rathnure Panto has been a con­sis­tent source of en­ter­tain­ment and Christ­mas cheer for fam­i­lies from all over the county and this year looks set to be one of the best yet as the gang presents another hi­lar­i­ous ca­per straight from the pen of John Reilly and Liam Sharkey.

‘Broom­stick: Tinker­bell’s Christ­mas Ad­ven­ture’ prom­ises to be like noth­ing you’ve seen be­fore!

The golden broom­stick now hangs in Broom­stick Col­lege, a col­lege where witches are no longer evil and have even been taken off of Santa’s naughty list. When in the hands of good, the broom­stick is all pow­er­ful and great, but it must not fall into the wrong hands as only one who is good and pure can har­ness its pow­ers. Mean­while in La­p­land, prepa­ra­tions are un­der­way for the biggest night of the year, but evil is afoot and could Christ­mas be ru­ined for­ever?

As al­ways, the Rathnure Panto is a huge pro­duc­tion with over 80 cast mem­bers and all the usual manic capers. The show fea­tures char­ac­ters such as Puss in Boots, six elves, a cow, a chicken, rein­deer who think they’re rab­bits and a camel! How do they all link in? You’ll have to go along to find out!

The show runs on De­cem­ber 9, 10, 12, 13, 14, 16, 17, 27, 28 and 29 at 7.45 p.m. nightly, with early evening shows on Sun­days. For more in­for­ma­tion or to book your tick­ets, call the box of­fice on 0870687801 or 0876954112.
