“Cracker” of a Panto in Castlelyons!

Over 70 children took to the stage in “The Nutcracker” panto at the Community Centre Castlelyons 3 times this weekend and were an inspiration to us all. Their months of rehearsal and costume preparation were plain to be seen in the wonderful performances they brought to all those who came to see them. From the 5 year olds right up to the oldest members of this show, each and every one was fantastic and gave their all over the 3 days.

We congratulate them all and of course not forgetting all those behind the scenes who made this production possible – The Barrymore Players drama group, Yvonne Fenlon – producer, Joy Alabastar – director, Christina McDonagh – choreographer, Richard Curran – music, Paul Murphy – sound and set, James Murphy – lighting, Con Lawlor and Paddy Donovan – props.  A job well done everyone.

We look forward to see whats in store for us next year, but for now they all deserve a well earned rest!
