Peter Pan will fly into Enniscorthy this week. Oh no he won't! Oh yes he will...

It's a case of lights, camera, action for the members of Enniscorthy Musical Society as they get ready to stage Peter Pan - The Panto from Thursday.

The panto which is the first to be staged by the musical society in almost 30 years is set to delight audiences across the county with people expected to come from far and wide.

Leading the talented cast are Edward O'Dowd and Emma O'Leary as Peter Pan and Tinkerbell. Local rising stars, Cailín Mullett, Christopher Kelly and Sean Milbourne join the Boy Who Will Never Grow Up on his adventures, as Wendy, Michael and John Darling.

No panto would be complete without some evil villains and they come in the form of the nasty Captain Hook (Jim Kealy) and mean Ms Hardigan (Therese Canavan Bolger). These veteran actors are joined by comedy team Caroline O'Connell, Alice Medcalf and Corah Dobbs, playing the hilarious Widow Smeesmoo, and her two dimwitted sons, Smee and Smoo.

On their adventures through Neverland, Peter and The Lost Boys will meet some war hungry Indians, a singing octopus, a very scary crocodile as well as some fantastic mermaids called The KarSplashians (Niamh Bolger, Nadia Corrigan, Alanah Dobbs).

With lots of songs and a team of fantastic dancers the panto team will have audiences flying high with this delightful and thrilling show.

Producer and director Gearóid McCauley said: 'We are delighted to return to The Athenaeum with this fantastic panto. The energy and enthusiasm of the cast and crew of over 80 people is amazing. This is a show for the whole family and we know audiences are going to love every moment.'

Peter Pan - The Panto will be staged in the Athenaeum from Thursday until Sunday. There will be shows at 8pm on Thursday, Friday and Saturday while there will be a matinee show on Saturday and Sunday at 3pm.

Tickets can be bought in the Athenaeum from 3pm to 6pm or contact 085 8342140.
