Breaffy GAA Club and the Irish Heart Foundation are looking forward to Saturday November 9 when Strictly Come Dancing Breaffy style returns to the Breaffy House Sports Arena. Ten couples are in serious training to see who will be crowned the 2013 Strictly Come Dancing champions following in the footsteps of last year’s deserving winners Brendan Cunningham and Celia McDermott. This year’s show is expected to meet the high standard of last year’s inaugural production, and behind the scenes months of preparation and planning will soon come to fruition. The judging panel consisting of Walter Donoghue, Brendan Cunningham, and Ivanka Nikimov, along with the hilarious Frank Forde as compere are definitely going to live up to expectations and leave us with a night to remember.

With standing ovations and many of the 3,500 audience returning to see the show, Castlebar Pantomime's version of The Wonderful Story of Mother Goose was easily the most enjoyable in 26 years for both audience and cast. The original script became unrecognisable with the directors doing their best to re-write a shorter version, while Walter Donoghue as Mother Goose did his absolute best to ad lib in as many new lines as possible as the shows progressed. But local references, many recognisable faces from around Mayo, a cast of 150 people including 70 junior chorus members, outstanding solo singers, comic lines, colourful dance routines, the hard working Castlebar Pantomime committee as producers, amazing harmonies by musical director John Flatley, imaginative choreography by Jason Guthrie, along with clever direction by Sharon Lavelle and Donna Ruane all resulted in a widely enjoyable production.
Mayo's longest running pantomime, the Castlebar pantomime, presents at the Royal Theatre, Castlebar, from January 12 to 16 its production of The Wonderful Story of Mother Goose. Mother Goose, who is played by Castlebar pantomime dame supremo Walter Donoghue, has it all — family, friends, Fairyland fairies looking out for her, and a magical golden egg laying goose. Mother Goose lives with her beautiful daughter Jill Goose (Tara Kelly from Kiltimagh) and a loveable son Billy Goose (David Tobin) in their humble home in Merrilea. The only shadow on people's happiness in Merrilea is the aptly named Clarence Creep, Squire of Cheatham Hall (cleverly played by James Murray from Coarsepark, Castlebar). His brother was the previous Squire of Merrilea but strangely did not make out a will to protect his son Colin (Terry O'Hara) from a life of poverty and by law all rights as a squire were passed to Clarence Creep. Was this really justice or the work of the conniving Clarence Creep?

Every year Castlebar Pantomime proudly claims that its current production is the best to date. Well, this year Puss In Boots has gone further than Castlebar Panto's widest expectations. Following an extensive campaign to gain new pantomime members, the wealth of talent gathered on the refurbished Royal Theatre stage has totally illuminated the usual high standard production expected by Castlebar Pantomime audiences.
It is a long time since Castlebar pantomime performed a show based on a nursery rhyme, the last one being Mother Hubbard in 1999, Mother Goose of 1993 is only associated with nursery rhymes, which then leaves Ole King Cole in 1990, making a Castlebar pantomime based around a nursery rhyme a bit of rarity and in the case of Sing A Song Of Sixpence a rather brilliant show!
