As 2019 draws to a conclusion, Kiltoom Drama Group are preparing to stamp their mark on the year as they finalise rehearsals for their exciting forthcoming production.

Evil is about to be banished from Pantoland thanks to the wedding of Cinderella’s daughter (Eabha Crehan ) and Snow White’s son (Shane Keenan ). The wicked queen Evelyn (Debbie Kilbride ), sets out to stop the wedding by transporting Princess Lottie (Eabha Crehan ) and her two assistants, Nick (Donie Hamrock ) and Nack (Maeve O’Reilly ), to the far reaches of Pantoland. Prince Marvellous (Shane Keenan ), his friend Jack (Della Sammon ) and the cook Gertie (Dermot Fitzgerald ), set off to save her. Along the way, they both meet various characters from different stories as they try to find each other and finally go through with their wedding.
Remaining characters are played by Sinead Morris, Ann Toohey, John Stack, John McGrath, Ann Fallon, Lisa Nugent, Francisco Vinas and Pat Warby.
