We have just finished a very successful run of our annual Pantomime. This year it was Entangled, the story of Rapunzel with a handsome prince, the villain and comic characters all played by local Athlone actors who gave a wonderful performance enjoyed by everyone in the audience. The Pantomime is a great family entertainment that traditionally takes place before or just after Christmas.
We would like to thank to the Kilduff family who put so much energy and time into this year’s production. Kori Kilduff was the director and she was assisted by Claudia O’Sullivan the choreographer.
The annual Pantomime is a Dean Crowe Theatre production and we would like to thank our cast and chorus for their time and commitment. We also want to thank our sponsors for their support. There was, as usual, a big voluntary effort by a lot of people and we are very grateful to them for making it all possible.
The Dean Crowe Theatre has an exciting line up of events over the next few months.
In February we have Fred and Alice a play by Colette Sheridan.
The critically acclaimed two-hander, Fred & Alice, starring Ciarán Bermingham and Cora Fenton as a quirky couple, both of whom have OCD (obsessive compulsive disorder), the play is touching and comic look at two characters that live every day as if it’s exceptional. They often get things wrong, but find their own way of coping.
The play Fred and Alice is followed by, as a complete contrast, Megaslam Wresteling. This is a great fun entertainment for all the family.
On Wednesday 15th February Our Lady’s Bower transition year students will present Peter Pan. This will run for three shows until Friday 17th .
The story on Michael Collins will be presented in The Big Fellow on Saturday 18th of February.
