PUSS IN BOOTS – the purrrfect pantomime for all the family
**** Sorry, both matinee performances @ 2:15pm are now full – we still have tickets for all other performances ****
Back for our 56th season of panto, this year we are bringing you hilarity, hijinks and maybe just a little romance with the popular pantomime Puss In Boots, starting on 31st January 2018. Once again we have ten performances including two Saturday matinee performances.
Jack the Miller’s son has just inherited a cat. But this cat is no ordinary feline. And with the help of a charming fairy, Puss in Boots develops the power of speech; soon Puss helps our humble hero, Jack, on his way to fame and fortune. However, between Jack and fortune lies a terrible ogre, a wicked fairy, Jack’s bumbling, not-too-bright, brothers, as well as some rather large rabbits, not to mention a King and Queen in search of a wealthy son-in-law.
This show will be packed with every ingredient for the perfect traditional family pantomime. Expect larger-than-life characters, loads of laughs, a dose of slapstick, modern music, beautiful costumes, stunning dance moves, and of course…… plenty of heroes to cheer and baddies to boo!

“We’ll sing it where the road goes round the corner to remember that the magic of the music’s in the note that lingers on.”
These are the words from one of Colum’s songs which beautifully express the enduring talent of this memorable musician and storyteller, who draws on a long Irish tradition of poetic musicality to weave songs for the world. Colum is in concert on Saturday 30th September 2017. As he performs all over the world – at the latest count over 30 countries – we will be able to appreciate at first hand the songs and stories in which he observes the minute and often humorous details of life.
“An unforgettable, wonderful performer. I’ve just seen him play to 2,500 people in the Australian National Folk Festival’s biggest venue and make everyone feel as if they were sitting in his lounge room. He’s warm, witty, moving and funny.” Steve Barnes, Director Fairbridge Folk Festival.
“Colum’s gift is of breaking down cultural barriers through choice words and eloquent music.” John O’Regan, Rock ‘n’ Reel.
