University Concert Hall’s panto this year is the all-time favourite Peter Pan. The flyaway fairy-tale, will run at UCH from Thursday December 15 with two shows per day including a sensory show on December 23 at 2pm.
Join the boy who never grew up, together with his friends Wendy and tiny Tinkerbell, as they travel to Never Never Land to take on the hilariously horrible Captain Hook and his band of (pretty useless!) pirates.
Peter Pan will see the UCH Panto return with a bang so expect your favourite Panto characters in a show packed with stunning sets, crazy costumes, the year’s biggest hits and at least two years’ worth of laugh out loud comedy!
“Peter Pan will mark the 10th Anniversary of the UCH Panto, and will see it return to the amazing, full scale production that audiences have come to love. We really can’t wait to bring the magic of the UCH Panto back this December and we look forward to welcoming families through our doors once again to make new Christmas memories!” Sinead Hope, Director of UCH.
Producer Robert C Kelly said he is “delighted to be returning to Limerick once again to build on the already fantastic success we have had at University Concert Hall where, since 2012, audiences have welcomed our large-scale family Panto with ever increasing numbers year on year. We can promise this show will be our highest flying one yet!”

I had an absolute ball there in Aladdin in 2019 – audiences were amazing and really up for all the shouting and booing that I love as the baddie!
