IS COMING TO CASTLEBAR
The Castlebar Pantomime Group presents the first of eight shows ‘'Aladdin'’ in the Travellers Friend Theatre, Castlebar commencing with a matinee performance on Sunday 14th January at 3 p.m., and running nightly at 8.30 p.m. through to Saturday 20th with two shows - one at 3pm and the final performance at 8.30pm.
'Aladdin' is a comedy-adventure pantomime with nineteen principal roles and was last staged in Castlebar in 1988. This action-packed show includes a Palace that flies to Egypt, adventures with a sinister Mummy, a Ghost, a haughty Spirit and a hint of Ali-Baba.
Chorus numbers are up to the usual high standard set by our very talented and professional Musical Director, Finola Higgins-Cosgrove, from Kiltimagh.
Dance routines created by Choreographer, Jason Guthrie.
The Show is Produced by Sharon Lavelle and Directed by Marina Rice.
