We at The Drogheda Pantomime will strive to entertain you with every show that hits the stage, just as we are sure to in our 62nd annual performance this January. Yes, the show is months away, but rest assured that the preparations are well underway!
We have been holding regular meetings to ensure that the forthcoming show is better than ever, and that the show re-establishes its beneficial and valuable place in our community.
The Drogheda Pantomime Society have helped many schools, organisations, groups and social societies raise vital funds for many years, and this year, they want to extend this support to a wider range of groups in our town. In this dramatic economic climate, there are so many groups that would really benefit from the helping hand that the Drogheda Pantomime Society is reaching out to people.
We are inviting organisations of all shapes and sizes to avail of the fantastic opportunity to raise money while being entertained and amused through selling tickets for the January performance of ‘Beauty and the Beast’.
There will be child, adult and family tickets available to sell, and each organisation who decide to benefit from selling these tickets will reap significant proceeds, while also having a brilliant and fun night out at the pantomime.
Paul Henry, director of the Drogheda Pantomime and chairperson of the Society said “We are delighted to be able to offer this opportunity to those in our town who would really benefit from it. As a member of a group in Drogheda, I know just how helpful this could be. We have all taken part in some variety of fundraising, and it’s great when something like this comes along that can be really entertaining and fun, and at the same time, help raise money that can be put to fantastic use.”
Sharon Wynne, a member of the Fatima Parents Council said “Taking part in the ticket selling has benefited the school in so many ways. Not only do our students have a fantastic time at the show, enjoying the pantomime with schoolmates and family members, but has created opportunities that the school otherwise would not have had. With the money we raised, we bought an interactive whiteboard and an interactive keyboard which has really enhanced the children’s learning experience”.
The forthcoming show will be held from 20th until 29th January 2012 in The TLT and hopes to see many new faces filling the seats of the theatre that have benefited their own organisation, with the show’s help.
