Fly­ing start for Peter Pan panto show

New Ross Standard - - NEWS -

The magic of Peter Pan is be­ing brought to life on St Michael’s Theatre stage for the first time as New Ross Pan­tomime So­ci­ety mark a cen­tury of en­ter­tain­ing in the town with a hi­lar­i­ous take on the J.M. Bar­rie story.

The ad­ven­tures of the boy who never grew up, the Dar­ling chil­dren, Wendy, John, Michael and Ge­orge and the pixie Tinker­bell as they come up against Cap­tain Hook, will keep au­di­ences en­ter­tained over 11 shows, be­gin­ning this Satur­day with the mati­nee per­for­mance. The pan­tomime fun con­tin­ues un­til Satur­day, Jan­uary 19.

With more than 40 chil­dren in­volved, this prom­ises to be a block­buster show, ideal for a night out dur­ing the cold win­ter days to come.

Chair­per­son of New Ross Mu­si­cal So­ci­ety, Eileen St Ledger said the so­ci­ety wanted to put on a spe­cial show – one which has never be­fore been per­formed for New Ross au­di­ences – to cel­e­brate its 100th year.

Fea­tur­ing jokes in­volv­ing lo­cal char­ac­ters in the fine tra­di­tion of the pan­tomime so­ci­ety, there will be pop­u­lar songs like This is Me from The Great­est Showman to en­joy.

The mu­si­cal di­rec­tor is long time so­ci­ety mem­ber Ger Grif­fin, with Anne-Marie Cooney as chore­og­ra­pher and Eileen and Sparkle Com­mu­nity Spirit mak­ing the cos­tumes.

Tick­ets cost €12 for mati­nee and Mon­day, Tues­day, Wed­nes­day per­for­mances and €15 for the re­main­ing shows.
