Moment in Time: Portlaoise Panto ‘Cinderella’ sells out in 2009

SHARE

For this week’s Moment in Time, we look back on Portlaoise Panto Group’s production of ‘Cinderella’ in the Dunamaise Theatre.

The show marked the group’s 25th annual production and their 10th annual performance in the Dunamaise theatre.

After four months of rehearsal, the panto was a huge success with all of the shows selling out.

An adult cast of 25 acted alongside a children’s chorus of 16.

Jayne Louise Kelly starred as Cinderella, Gillian Haslam and Louise McEvoy played the ugly sisters and Damian Halpan acted as the stepmother.

Other cast members included Deirde Phelan, Michael O’Reilly, Noel Tuohy, PJ Mulhall, Christy Bannon, and Eoghan Fingleton.

Seasoned cast members included Tim Keane, Lynda Byrne, Bernie Tynan, Breed Davy Butler and Niamh Muldowney.
