PANTO LOVERS are in for a real treat this year when the Magic Carpet Theatre Group unveil their show at the end of the month.

The group will be performing 'Sleeping Beauty' and it is sure to be a real treat for kids of all ages.

With magical scenes, side-splitting comedy and a rocking musical soundtrack, 'Sleeping Beauty' is the perfect panto experience.

This year's show stars Lauren McGarry, Wesley Carroll, Ailbhe Noonan, Alan Cash, Colina McGarry, Cliodhna Noonan, Shielagh Noonan, Caitlin Young, Patrick Foley, Ciaran Jordan.

It will run from December 27 to January 1 inclusive with performances daily at 2.30 p.m. and 4.30 p.m.

Tickets are on sale at Rush Community Centre. The cost is €7 each but there are family and party rates available.

Sleeping Beauty is directed by Anne Stack and assisted by Susan Keogh.

'We wanted to bring a really traditional children's panto to Rush this year at prices that everyone can afford,' said Susan.

'We think the intimate setting of the community centre will ensure children have a fun afternoon that they will always remember.

For further information call (087) 7510464 or (086) 3196737. Because of the limited capacity, early booking is recommended.

The show has been sponsored by Hickeys Pharmacy, Rush, and Neary New Motors in Lusk.

The Magic Carpet group would also like to acknowledge Joe Mays in Skerries and Rush Library.
