Its that time of year again "Oh No Its Not" I hear you all say..."Oh Yes It Is!!!" Kilkenny's Annual Pantomime this year is Snow White And The Seven Dwarfs written by the very talented Joe Murray and Directed by Olivia Smith, Choreography by Marie Cashin and Musical Director Ollie Hennessy. Im sure you all know the fairy tail by now but their is an Evil Queen, Handsome Prince, Beautiful Leading Lady and Seven Dwarfs along with a Magic Mirror that can tell you at any time throughout the show how beautiful you are...Ive yet to try it but trust me I know what it will say.
This year the Dame played by the hilarious Derek Dooley really entertained the audience with his jokes and his one liners and really had the audience in stitches. His two sons played by the fantastic Sarah Brennan and Claire Henriques really are Panto favourites at this stage and again this year was no different with their rivalry and jealousy throughout the show. The Seven Dwarfs with many being allot taller then me got all the children up off their seats and had them clapping along to "Hi Ho its off to work we go" with all the kids joining in and again a magic moment within the show.
The Evil Queen played by the talented Laura Mc Carthy seriously was wicked! and The Crone Paula Drohan, we all know what happens - Yes she comes out for her Bow and well deserved applause at the end so don't worry. The show is sold out for the week and rightly so - next time make sure you book early as these Pantomimes sell out months in advance, "Oh no they don't - Oh yes they do!!!" Sorry I'm still in Panto mode Ill stop now - "Oh no I won't - Oh Yes I will..."
Snow White & The Handsom Prince played by the stunning Gemma Grant & Aidan Byrne had fantastic chemistry as the leading stars along with some fabulous songs both sung in harmony and were beautiful to watch on stage, and although Snow White falls into a deep deep sleep don't worry a kiss from Aidan brings her back to life before the audience are on their merry way and Gabby closes the door for another night also Im not forgetting Gemma's brother played by Alan Grant aka The Mirror was excellent.
Congratulations to every member of the team who has outdone themselves again from the amazing show including The Ensemble - The costume designers - backstage staff - props - front of house - and every person involved within the show and performance.
