Holloween is over and thoughts are once again turning to the most wonderful time of the Year. No, not Christmas, we're talking about Panto Season!
The wonderful people behind Castlebar Pantomime are busy getting ready for this year’s production of Aladdin - a very popular pantomime at this year in Ireland.
This year’s pantomime is sponsored by Coady’s and Master Carpets. A spokesperson commented: “We (the committee ) are delighted that the Rice Family from Master Carpet’s agreed to come on board this year. Sure, what would Aladdin be without a Master, sorry I mean MAGIC Carpet. And Coady’s have been a long standing sponsor and supporter of Castlebar Pantomime, a partnership we hope lasts for many years. We are delighted to have both local businesses on board this year, along with the many businesses that support us in other ways such as programme ads, spot and raffle prizes. And we would encourage everyone to support our local businesses too.”
Remember shop local and support your community.
Like previous pantomimes, Castlebar Pantomime’s Aladdin will be full of fun, songs, dancing and laughs, with lots of BOOOOs, and AWWHHHs. And of course, a Genie!
The story of a young boy who falls in love with the lovely Princess Jasmine, who is waaaayyyyy out of his league, and then tricked by the evil Abanazar into retrieving a magic lamp with hidden powers, so that he can become more powerful. But will Aladdin fall for Abanazar’s tricks? Will he find love with the beautiful Princess? You will just have to come along to An Sportlann to find out.
