The show has been written and directed by Brian Morgan who is delighted with the way rehearsals are going saying “all the actors are local parishioners and for several of them this will be their first time on stage. Their commitment and enthusiasm is brilliant with everyone giving 100 percent”.

Mona McGlade, manager of the centre is looking forward to the busy weekend in February adding: “I have attended a few of the rehearsals and audiences are certainly going to be entertained. It is an excellent show with many twists and turns.

“We are delighted to be staging such as event and I know it’s going to be every bit as successful as the pantomimes that have been held here”.
