More than 50 young people from Sixmilebridge are set to dazzle audiences with captivating musical numbers, sensational dance routines and, as always, witty and lively comedy.

The pantomime follows the story of Hansel and Gretel as they set off on an adventure to find a house of candy owned by Witch Winnie Wonka.

Hansel and Gretel’s father Sonny Day decides to bring a slice of colour and singing to the household, so he hires a nanny named Mary Poppins, portrayed in the guise of the traditional panto dame. Tickets for a modest price for Sixmilebridge Youth Club’s ‘Hansel and Gretel’  are available from members and local shops
