The Gaiety Theatre has announced Cinderella, the most loved fairytale of them all, as this year’s Gaiety Pantomime. 

Opening next Sunday 26th November 2023 and running until 21st January 2024 with extra performances just added due to phenomenal demand. Tickets for the extra dates are priced from €21.50 (including booking fee and restoration levy) and are on sale now.

Starring legendary Gaiety Panto Dame Joe Conlan as Nanny Scrumptious, Nicholas Grennell as Evil Stepmother, Ciara Lyons as Cinderella, David Crowley as Prince Charming, Donncha O’Dea as King Charming, Stephen O’Leary as Dandini, Michael Joseph as Buttons, Linzi Cowap and Aisling Breen as the Ugly Sisters and Emma Wigglesworth as Fairy Godmother.  Directed by Daryn Crosbie.

Bursting at the seams with Panto antics, song and dance, breathtaking costumes and mesmerising magic, this updated rags to riches tale will show us what dreams are really made of…and a dream isn’t just a wish your heart makes. As always, true love finds a way and good conquers evil in this enchanting story, because there’s no room for bullies at the ball.

So, if the shoe fits, then please join us for the biggest, the best and most magical Panto of them all, ‘Cinderella’ – celebrating ‘150’ years of Panto at the Gaiety Theatre.

And don’t forget, this is no ordinary Panto…It’s the Gaiety Panto…!

 The Gaiety Theatre has hosted the annual Christmas Panto each year since “ Turko The Terrible” in 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.
