The Renmore Pantomime Society are delighted to be back for their 42nd production, with the magical and timeless tale of Cinderella.
They will ‘Bibbidi-Bobbidi-Boo’ their way through the Town Hall Theatre for a total of 23 performances.
Characters include Hortense (Síofra Ní Chonluain ) and Buttons (Cian O’Ceallaigh ) - a great duo and loyal companions to Cinderella (Olivia Corbett-Joyce ), Baron Stoneybroke (Michael Cooney ), the loving father of Cinderella, and Dandini (Seán Steede ), the Prince’s Valet, protector, and friend. We cannot wait to see what mischief the ugly sisters Gorgonzola (Declan J.Gardiner ) and Fromaggio (David Booth ) will evoke, and what ploys the jealous Demoness Demelza (Elizabeth Flaherty ) will brew in her effort to win the day.
Our spirits will be lifted by dashing Prince Charming (Keith Hanley ) who desperately seeks to find love his own way while keeping a promise to his father that he will marry before his 21st birthday. We will follow the journey of Cinderella, a beautiful kind girl who faces oppression from her step sisters but shows that goodness will always win over cruelness in the end.
With a dash of magic from her Fairy Godmother (Ciara O’Meara ) and support from her friends, Cinderella will make her way to the ball, seeking a charming young valet who turns out to be a Prince. Leaving only a crystal slipper behind after a short stint at the ball, the Prince is desperate to find his one true love and on his quest will encounter the step sisters trying to deceive him and win his heart. This tale will entertain, while also leaving us with an important message that - ultimately - kindness always wins the day.
Supporting the principals on stage will be the Chorus, Tweens & Smurfs groups adding flourishes of song and dance to the story.
The experienced production team – Directors Brian and Seán Power, Choreographer Declan J.Gardiner and Musical Director John O’Dea – have been working hard with all the cast over the past few months to bring the story of Cinderella to audiences.
