This was "Jack and the Beanstalk" 1962. Came across
this exerpt from the CT in 1990, my sister sent this
to me and I don't know why, but going through some
stuff came across it.
"TIMES PAST" In Castlebar, a Ballina man was leading
a merry cast in one of the best Pantos seen in the
town for years. Bank official Liam O'Reilly had a
leading role in Jack and the Beanstalk, under the
productive eye of Cecil Norman, and other lead roles
were played by Tom McGreal, his daughter Jean and son Ken;
Henry Downes, Charlie Dowling, Anton Condon, Dan Darcy,
Mary Flanagan, Sean Cleary, Adrian Walsh, Angela Denning,
Pat Gerathy, Eamon Horkan and Gerard McHugh"
Adrian is the person I keep referring to as Frank.
Talk about timing. Came across some other interesting
facts, will post over the next few days.
