Rapunzel Pantomime

Directed by Daryn Crosbie
26th November 2017 – 7th January 2018 
It wouldn’t be Christmas without a visit to the Gaiety Panto!  

Get tangled up with laughter as Rapunzel is this year's Gaiety Panto.A pantomime extravaganza with singing, dancing and laugh out loud shenanigans - hair, there and everywhere! 

Follow Rapunzel on her hair-larious and hair-raising adventures as she tries to escape her Evil-Stepmother who has locked her away in the secret tower.  Legendary panto dame Joe Conlan, who celebrates his 28th year in the industry, will play "Nanny Ninny Noonah" and is joined by Ciara Lyons as "Rapunzel", Johnny Ward as "Johnny B Goode" and Nicholas Grennell as the King "Larry Lilly Loolah".

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!

Gaiety Theatre

For 142 years The Gaiety Theatre has given the people of Dublin opera, musicals, drama, revues, comedy, concerts, dance, festivals and pantomime. Amid the laughter and tears, through times of war and times of affluence, The Grand Old Lady of South King Street has remained a vital and ever changing expression of Irish culture and Irish society. Long home to the familiar faces of Maureen Potter, Niall Toibin, John B. Keane, Anna Manahan, Des Keogh and Rosaleen Linehan, whose bronze handprints, are set into the pavement in front the theatre, together with those of Luciano Pavarotti and Brian Friel, are testament to the longstanding association these great artists have had with Dublin’s Gaiety Theatre.
