Flying start for Peter Pan panto show
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.
