The year is galloping towards the silly season and this doesn't just mean Christmas lights and shopping for us! It is one of the best times of the year as Panto season comes to town too.
It's all good news this year as producers Alan Hughes & Karl Broderick (Anthem Productions) announced that Pop singer and Dancing with the Stars winner Jake Carter will take to the stage this December in the hugely popular Cheerios Panto.
"We are very excited to move to the fairytale setting of the Royal Hospital Kilmainham and the magical venue that is The PANTODOME", said producer Karl Broderick.
But what exactly is The PANTODOME? .. "It's a luxury state-of-the-art theatre-style venue, the first of it's kind to ever be seen in Ireland. But it's very intimate, it was very important to us to make sure that every seat is the best seat in the house. It's fantastic to have the very talented Jake on board", continued Karl.
He will join panto’s best double act, Alan Hughes (as Sammy Sausages) and Rob Murphy (as Buffy) in this magical adventure. Jake will play the dashing Prince..who'd rather be a commoner.
We managed to have a chat to Jake and he had this to say
"I really can’t wait to perform as the Prince in the Cheerios Panto in the PANTODOME. I’ve heard so many great things about this panto and I'm so excited to be a part of this years production.”
Well, we can't wait either Jake!
Ireland’s first PANTODOME in the beautiful grounds of the Royal Hospital Kilmainham is a luxury, state-of-the-art, theatre-style venue purpose-built for the panto. The panto may have moved from the Tivoli to this new venue but it will retain the intimacy that audiences have come to know and love. The team are determined to stage the funniest and most exciting Cheerios Panto ever, written by Karl Broderick, who is Irelands longest running consecutive panto writer (22 years).
Come along and discover for yourself that there really is ... No Place like DOME.
