With all the wit, magic and fun that our audiences have come to expect from our hilarious panto, Robin Hood is the must-see panto of Christmas 2018. Starring some audience favourites and introducing stunning new talent, The Helix Panto always delivers the best family night out. The Helix Panto will run from Friday November 23rd until Sunday January 20th. The Helix and TheatreworX are once again delighted to announce that Temple Street Children’s University Hospital are our Charity Partner for this years run! Last year we managed to raise €12,000 for this wonderful cause and we hope to do it all over again. 100% of the proceeds from this show will go directly to Temple Street Childrens University Hospital. The Helix Panto was the first ever Pantomime to introduce a sensory performance. This has since become an incredibly important part of our Panto run: Adapted performances will take place on Tuesday 18th of December at 7pm which include no sudden noises or bangs, softer and brighter lighting, and music at a suitable level. There will be no flashing merchandise available in the venue during these times. Please see link for specific times and dates

It wouldn’t be Christmas without a visit to the Gaiety Panto!  The Gaiety Theatre has hosted the annual Christmas Panto each year since 1873.  Today, families come from far and wide to experience  the Gaiety Christmas Panto and for many it has become as much a family Christmas tradition as Santa himself! This year’s fabulous Gaiety Theatre pantomime is The Snow Queen

Dreaming of a happier life, the beautiful Belle finds herself transported to a spell-bound castle held captive by a hideous beast. Can she see beyond the monster and fall in love with her captor before the last petal falls from the enchanted rose? Or will the Beast’s selfishness cost him the world he once knew and the hand of the girl that has melted his heart? You’ll love our traditional Christmas adventure, brought to you by a fabulous cast of larger than life characters in the intimate surrounding of the Belfast Waterfront Studio.

Everyone’s favourite Panto is back with Snow White & The Adventures of Sammy Sausages and Buffy. “The charm of this panto is lost on nobody. […] Alan Hughes as Sammy Sausages draws the kids into this colouring-book world  and Rob Murphy as Buffy is a force of nature” Irish Times

It’s that time of year. Dublin City is rammed, there are fewer choccies left in your advent calendar, and you’ve already lost your granny twice in Arnotts. But, this Christmas, the Liberty Hall Theatre has got its tinsel back. Yep, there’s a panto coming to the Liberty Hall Theatre Dublin 2018. It’s ‘Cinderella’. Praise be to Santa! ​Pantomime factory Tempus Productions has splashed out. Their production pulls out all the stops, boasting a star-studded cast this year including John Lovett (Red Rock, The Tudors & Panto Dame extraordinaire) And Eric Lalor (Comedian & Fair City Bad Guy) But is this a triumphant return to the North-side of the Liffey to ​one of the best venues in town? You’ll have to wait and see. Join us this year to see if poor old Cinders will get to the ball. That’s if her two ugly stepsisters Whitney & Britney ​are not up to their usual tricks. But, with the help of her faithful friend Buttons and the Magical Fairy G, it can only be fantastic. ​ What more could a panto ask for I hear you say? Well get your tickets soon for the Fairy Godmother of all pantomimes to find out! […]
