Excitement has been mounting for this year's panto 'Snow White and the Babes in the Wood' and the curtains have finally opened on the Dún Mhuire stage.

The show, which will run until Saturday January 16, has been billed as the Wexford Pantomime Society's biggest production yet. A combination of old and new faces will be in the limelight over the coming nights, bringing a host of magical fairytales together on the Wexford stage.

Written and directed by Thomas O'Leary, the cast includes Emily Brezzill as Snow White, Stephen Byrne as Horace, William Troy Walsh as Hansel, Emma O'Leary as Gretel and Clíona McCormack as Little Red Riding Hood. It is already attracting plenty of attention around the town and due to phenomenal demand, the Society have added an extra matinee show for Saturday.

Doors will open at 8 p.m. tonight. If you haven't got your ticket yet, they can be purchased from the Dun Mhuire Box Office for €10 but act fast as they are selling out fast!
