THE first audition for this year’s Christmas panto at the Balor Theatre, Ballybofey, will be held next weekend.
Saturday’s audition will be at 12 noon for children from 11 years upwards, while the adults’ session will be held next Tuesday, September 22, at 8 pm.
Directed by JC Bonar, ‘Babes in the Wood’ will be staged by the award-winning Butt Drama Circle.
In a journey where good prevails evil, the wicked Prince John plans to have his absent brother King Richard’s children kidnapped and killed, so that he can claim the throne for himself.
To this end he enlists the greedy Sheriff of Nottingham to do his dirty work for him and he in turn employs two idiot baddies, Riff and Raff. This turns out to be his mistake and the Babe’s good fortune.
The Sheriff also has an idiot son who dreams of being a famous footballer, but ends up joining Robin Hood’s gang instead.
Will faithful Nurse Neuralgia and the gang, who is aided by Robin Hood and his Merry Men (well two of them anyway) save the Babes?
If you, or someone you know, have what it takes to be a good goodie or baddie, please come along to one of the auditions.
