There was great excitement in Arklow as panto-fever gripped the town.

The talented members of Arklow Pantomime Creations ensured that their community enjoyed a festive panto to rival any in the larger cities as they presented 'Snow White and the Babes in the Wood'. The show, which enjoyed a three-day run, was a sell-out success with tickets snapped up well ahead of time.

This family-friendly show was months in the making and a cast of over 50 ensured that they were rehearsed to perfection.

Coral Leisure provided a great venue and accommodated hundreds of audience members throughout the run. With an array of fairytale characters making appearances including Show White played by Emily Kelly, Little Red Riding Hood played by Holly Prestage and The Evil Queen played by Avril O'Toole, the show was an all-singing, all-dancing extravaganza.
