This season’s offering will be the society’s 33rd annual production having commenced in January 1986 with Cinderella.
Tim Cusack will again play the Dame and this year his character is the most famous of all Panto characters “The Widow Twankey”. Tim promises to enthral both young and old with his comic antics in what promises to be an outstanding production.
Emma O’Driscoll is our very special guest star – Emma needs no introduction to Panto patrons and has appeared many times with the Society. Emma has worked as a presenter on Children’s TV for RTE. Emma is currently involved in many varied Projects and runs a successful Limerick based Stage School Gem Stars. The Society is delighted to announce that Emma will play the role of Princess Sukiyaki in this year’s much-anticipated production.
The title role of Aladdin will be played by Panto newcomer Jason Ronan – Jason is widely known in local amateur dramatic circles and has worked with many societies and groups in the area. He is currently Chairman of the Cecilian Musical Society and is looking forward to this year’s panto adventure.
The story will, as usual, contain many surprises and promises with many a twist and turn along the way. Stuart Mackey, a talented young actor, will take to the boards as the evil Abanazer.
Paul Fitzgerald, otherwise known as “Street- Boy”, makes a second appearance with the Society. Paul is well known for his slot on the Limerick’s Live 95FM Radio Breakfast Show. Paul plays the part of the extrovert Genie of the Lamp – typecasting at its best.
The society is delighted to announce that this year’s show will once again be in association with the Crescent Shopping Centre.
