Rathdowney Panto is now in it’s 28th year. This year’s show again is an original show written by their two resident script writers Niall O’ Doherty and Michael Creagh. The show is loosely based on the life story of American song and dance man Eddie Foy and his eight talented children. You the audience will be invited to savour some classic American show songs as well as lots of modern numbers.
This year’s leading roles are played by locals Karen Treacy and Eoin Fortune. The many songs in the show will be played and sung by a ten piece orchestra and pit singers, ably lead by musical director William Cullagh. The show runs in Rathdowney Community Centre from April 10 to April 13 at 8pm, with a matinee on April 13 at 2.30pm. The ticket prices have been maintained at last year’s prices.
