Offshoots of Panto
Renmore Pantomime has been a theatrical nursery for many children who later achieved national fame in the entertainment business. These include Cathy Belton (RTE and Abbey Actress), Jimmy Higgins (‘Riverdance’ ‘The Stunning’ and ‘The Sawdoctors’), Judith Higgins (Former Macnus Director), Cathy and Ciara Newell (‘Bellefire’ Pop Group), Sarah Keating (Popstar), Nora-Jane Noone (‘Magdalen Sisters’, other Hollywood Movies & ‘Coronation Street’). James Harris (Professional Actor), Clare Barrett (Stage & TV actress), Genevieve Moore (Professional Actress in Europe) and The Power Twins (National AIMS Award Winners for Best Directors). Former Panto leads Garrett Phillips, Frank Naughton and Lucia Evans are now full- time professional singers while Garrett Phillips also stars in the tv soap ‘Ros na Rún’. Tim Landers is a professional director, actor and writer. Kenneth Long has performed with many Musical Societies throughout Ireland, including at the NCH. Some past performers, like Aoife Kilbane, James Brennan & Michael Flanagan have followed their dreams to London where they are forging careers in Theatre & Film.
With Panto assistance several Gold, Silver & Bronze Medals were won by Renmore Teenagers performing in the Variety Entertainment Section of the National Community Games.
The Renmore Musical Society is another offshoot of the Panto. It was launched in 1985 with a spectacular production of ‘Grease’. Now known as the Galway Musical Society it continues to thrive & has won numerous National AIMS Awards.

A forerunner of the Renmore Pantomime was a local Tops of the Parish Variety Competition (1973/4) in which different streets competed against each other. This unearthed lots of talent & whetted the appetite for further theatrical activities.
