Cashel Pantomime Society is back again with their colourful production of Cinderella, a modern tale.

There is excitement in the air as cast and chorus are putting the final touches to this years show, under the guidance of Producer Maria O'Shaughnessy who is also on stage this year playing The Fairy Godmother... with a twist!

Maria's daughter Saoirse Fitzgerald is playing the pretty Cinderella while her handsome prince is played by Brian Anglim. The ugly sisters, Beyonce and Lady Gaga, are the hilarious Margo Fogarty and Barbara Ryan and it's also Barbara's first year with the society.

The ugly sisters' mother The Baroness Delilah of Windmill is played by Sean Murphy who has years of experience on stage. Baroness Delilah is addicted to getting married and is now on her fourth husband, Baron Algernan of Monameigh played by the hunky John Hally.

Loveable, gorgeous and iresistable Dandini is played by the loveable, gorgeous and irresistible Mark Edwards while the kind Buttons is Jake Ryan. Cinderella's friend is Sally played by Amanda Smith and Major Bouncer is Sean Devane.

Our Bubbly and colourful Chorus are under the direction of Aisling O'Dwyer and this years musical director is Sarah Flynn.
