CHRISTMAS TIME in Galway means it’s pantomime time and no Galway Christmas is complete without the Renmore Pantomime and a show from the Performing Arts School Galway.
Renmore will celebrate its 30th annual pantomime with a glittering production of Beauty and the Beast for 22 performances (including eight matinees ) from December 30 to January 18 at the Town Hall Theatre, Galway.
This new script by Peter Kennedy sees a mediaeval episode of Blind Date having dire consequences for Prince Leopold (Andrew Hawcroft ) when he doesn’t select evil witch Azaria (Lucia Evans ). She retaliates by turning him into a beast. However, love saves the day when Beauty and the magical Dr Freckle come to his rescue.
The Performing Arts School Galway will stage Snow White and the 7 Delinquents in The Black Box from December 28 to January 4. The pantomime has two performances daily, with a matinée at 2.30pm and an evening show at 7.30pm.
With a script written by famous children’s writer Maeve Ingoldsby, it tells that story of a beautiful princess who is saved from her evil stepmother by seven adorable delinquents. It stars Emma Horgan (Wicked Queen ), Gavin Ferry (Prince Charming ), and Ana Mahe (Snow White ).
