The 33rd Annual Rathdowney Pantomime, “The Royals, The Witch and The Woodcutter” was a big hit in Rathdowney Community Centre.

Staged over four days from March 7-9 the show was fun packed and entertaining for all the family show.

This year featured appearances from Michael Creagh, Brian McHugh, Donal Ryan, Paul Hogan, Mark O’Loughlin, Pat Keating, Willie Bowe, Shane O’Grady, Sean Sherman, Danny Maher, Karen Holohan, Sarah Bowe, Lisa Doran, Lisa Blanc, Chole Martin, Sarah Moynan as well as some new up and coming cast members in the mix.

As always the primary school kids were great and their enthusiasm to entertain on the stage was second to none. The ladies’ choruses, led by the secondary school girls, were also a big hit.

Written by Joe Hyde the show was directed by Karen Holohan with the support committee members Paul Hogan, Pat Keating, Chole Martin, Sarah Bowe, Lisa Blanc and Lisa Doran. The musical directed Will Cullagh ensured the show hit all the right notes.

Photographer Alf Harvey went along to catch the show on camera.
