Solicitor is villain of the piece -- as panto dame in court

A BUSY solicitor had a quick costume change before he dashed up the steps of a courthouse to attend to some serious business.

John O'Sullivan was entertaining schoolchildren at the pantomime 'Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs' in Carlow town at lunchtime yesterday.

As our picture on the left shows, he donned a colourful skirt and a blouse for his performance at the George Bernard Shaw Theatre in Carlow's Visual Arts Centre.

A few minutes after he appeared on stage, he was back to work in his usual attire at Carlow Circuit Court, right.

There was no trace of his heavy tan or red lipstick as he met his clients.

Mr O'Sullivan also burst into Lennon's restaurant at the Visual, where he sang and greeted bewildered business people who were having lunch.

He was promoting the local panto by Carlow Club Players, which is directed by Marian Brophy.

'Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs' runs from this Thursday until Monday, December 20 at 8pm. A matinee takes place on Sunday, December 19 at 3pm.

Tickets are priced at €15 or €12 with concessions.
