As part of our community youth arts development programme and as a fundraiser for our MacLuí Children’s Arts festival 2018, we are producing our first Pantomime for Westport which will be run by MacLuí Community Youth Initiative and Children’s Arts Festival in association with Westport Town Hall Theatre.
The Panto, entitled “Prince Handsome” will include an eclectic mix of drama, music and dance. The story is about a handsome Prince who wants to marry a beautiful rich Princess so that he can save his kingdom from financial ruin. No problem, you might think?! But what the Prince has in looks he lacks in brains and courage, and like all good fairy tales – that is not his only problem, a nasty villain also wants to marry the Princess and challenges Prince Handsome to a duel. Help is needed quick and a game of cat and mouse begins. Actually Three Blind Mice and a very hungry sword-bearing cat plus many, many more colourful characters enter the fray. What happens next?
Why not join us on this journey and meet some very familiar and some very unusual characters. Will good triumph over evil or will the dark forces have their day?
