Each year the Patrician Youth Centre makes a huge effort and this year is a special year… their thirty years of performing pantomimes having peformed almost all the major pantos.

“With a tremendous team effort, the Patrician panto machine kicks off months in advance and rehearsals continue until it is all drilled in.

Senior Youth Leader Yvonne Maquire said: “We have been producing pantomimes since the 1980’s and this has been a long history of entertaining many through our song, dance and comedy poroductions.

“The shows are a showcasse of the wealth of talent on offer in our Centre and we are delighted to bring you this classic fairytale. The Patrician and Pantomime have always been a team effort with adults and young people working in partnership to produce the public performances. The cast on stage is the public face of many more working behind the scenes in many different roles.
