Preparing for the 25th Anniversary Production
Although their next show is not until January 2010, Castlebar Pantomime is currently busy preparing for what is their 25th Anniversary. Castlebar Pantomime Committee would like to thank all who helped make their recent Race Night such a success, with much thanks extended to Mick Byrne.

Auditions for Panto 2010
September for Panto means auditions - and this year is no exception.  Junior (U-18 yrs) auditions will again be held in Davitt College, Springfield, Castlebar from 11am on Saturday 19th September.  The cast auditions will be held on each Monday 21st & 28th of September & Wednesday 23rd & 30th of September at 8.00pm. Depending on numbers, those who are interested in joining the Senior Chorus can also attend on these dates. While anyone who is interested in working backstage are also invited to attend. Every move front of curtain is dependent on those behind the scenes!
Old King Cole 1990 - L-R Claire Kenny, Mary McHale & Colette (McGinty) Hastings as The King's Three Wives in 1990 production of Old King Cole.

While to date the 2010 production has not been finally decided on, creative ideas are positively flying around Pantomime Committee meetings. This maybe Castlebar Pantomimes first quarter century as Mayo's longest running Pantomime, but fresh ideas and new friends are as always, guaranteed.
