RENMORE PANTOMIME’S ALADDIN 2020
You’ve got a friend in us! Renmore Pantomime Society are delighted to be back with our forty first performance, with the incredible ‘Aladdin’!
We are hitting the stage in the Town Hall Theatre from 29 December 2019 to 12 January 2020 and the excitement for this production is electrifying!
We are very excited to take you on a magic carpet ride and follow Aladdin (Declan J. Gardiner) on his journey to winning the heart of the beautiful princess Jasmine (Jennifer Flaherty). There will be lots of fun and laughter on the way, as he enters ‘a whole new world’ from ‘Street Rat’ to ‘Prince’.
The laughter continues when we meet Aladdin’s mother Widow Twankey who is played by script writer (Peter Kennedy). She faces the challenge of trying to keep her son on his best behaviour while keeping the local laundry in tip top shape.
The audience will have lots of adorable characters to meet including Hoozee (Aidan Corrigan), Esmeralda (Eilish O’Malley) and the iconic character Genie of the Lamp (Cian O’Ceallaigh).
It would not be a Pantomime without the character we love to hate and the hecklings we willingly love to give from the audience. We encourage you not to feel shy when it comes to greeting Abanazar (Michael Cooney) with plenty of boos! as he attempts to deny Aladdin of his happy ending while growing his own magical powers.
This year’s production includes some of the year’s biggest pop anthems, and of course some favourites from the past, to ensure that you will be ‘still standing’ and wanting more at the end.
We look forward to welcoming back our delightful little Renmore Smurfs and introducing you to some of Galway’s best performers.
Aladdin will run at the Town Hall Theatre for a total of 20 performances from 29th December to 12th January. There will be matinees (2.30pm) on Dec 29th, 30th, 31st Jan 1st, 4th and 11th of January.

You can expect an adjusted performance such as low lighting, sound, and the freedom to jump and dance in a comfortable safe environment.
