DUE to Covid-19 restrictions, the Limerick Panto Society has had to cancel its annual Christmas pantomime in the Lime Tree Theatre.
The decision not to go ahead with its eagerly anticipated production of Peter Pan was taken last August and it is the first time in 35 years that the Panto Society will not be entertaining the people of Limerick and the Mid-West over the Christmas season.
There are normally more than 200 people involved directly in the show including a 50 strong chorus and a cast of up to 20 principal characters in addition to stage and technical crews, production team, orchestra and front of house staff as well as the children’s chorus from Spotlight Stage School, Expressive Arts Stage School and Gemstars.
The Limerick Panto Society is an amateur group that operates in a professional environment. It makes a substantial contribution to the local economy and a vibrant contribution to the cultural life of Limerick and the Mid-West over the festive period.
The Crescent Shopping Centre has always supported the group and the Society is so grateful to the Traders Association for all their help over the years.
The society acknowledges the support of its patrons, supporters and sponsors including the Shannon Group, Mr Binman, Limerick City Hotel, McGettigans, Quirke Shaw Cleaning Supplies and McDonalds.
