RENMORE PANTOMIME will celebrate its 40th anniversary with Sleeping Beauty, specially scripted by Panto Dame Peter Kennedy, and directed by AIMS award-winning twins, Brian and Seán Power.
With Ireland trying to get back to its winning ways in the Eurovision Song Contest, Irish Eurovision royalty, King Johnny (Nathan Mannion ) and Queen Linda (Katie Creaven ), marry with the sole intention of creating a genetically perfect Eurovision star of the future. Princess Beauty (Katie Feeney ) is born and the Eurovision hopes of the kingdom rest on her.
Uncle Louie (Michael Cooney ), Sir Philip (David Booth ) and Prince Nicky (Declan J Gardiner ) judge the competing hopefuls, which include Jill (Siofra Ní Chonluain ) and Egbert (Michael Healy ) and Beauty. However, the wicked Queen Diana (Marsha Maly ) believes the Eurovision crown belongs to her and puts a curse on Beauty to prevent her from representing Ireland.
With Nanny Annie (Peter Kennedy ), and Penny (Eilish O'Malley ) and Dopey Dave (Richard Brown ) by Beauty's side, can they break the wicked Queen's curse? The Renmore Smurfs will be there as well.
Sleeping Beauty runs at the Town Hall Theatre from December 29 to January 13, with matinees (2.30pm ) on December 29 and 31, and January 1, 5 and 12, and (12noon and 4.30pm ) on Sundays December 30 and January 6 and 13.
