We all love a good panto - especially the ones around Christmas. 

Pantomimes are great craic - oh yes they are! 

They're a great day out for all the family or if you just want to relive your childhood of days out where you get to eat loads of sweets and laugh till your sides hurt. 

There's plenty of Christmas pantos on over the next two months so check out our list below!


This is no ordinary panto - IT'S A GAIETY PANTO! Rapunzel comes to the Gaiety Theatre from 26 November and runs until the 7th January. Panto dame Joe Conlan plays Nanny Ninny Noonah and is joined by Ciara Lyons as Rapunzel and Fair City's Johnny Ward as Johnny B Goode. Tickets are on sale now and can be bought here. 

Beauty and the Beast

The Helix is home to Beauty and the Beast this year, starring Orla Jennings as Beauty and Chris Corron as the Beast. The show runs from the 24th November to the 21st January. On the 19th December they will be also running a sensory friendly production of it, which include no sudden noises or bangs, softer and brighter lighting, and music at a suitable level. Tickets for Beauty and the Beast are available here.

This year's Cheerios Panto is Sleeping Beauty and will be held in the Tivoli Theatre. X Factor star Mary Byrne stars as Good Queen Mary alongside Alan Hughes as Sammy Sausages. The panto runs from the 7th December until 14th January and tickets can be bought here.


Aladdin is a fab show and this year comes to the Red Cow Inn. The show will run from the 19th to the 23rd December so you better grab your tickets before they go. Tickets are available here.
