The Helix Christmas Panto is back with Hansel and Gretel

The Helix panto is back. Oh no it’s not. Oh YES it is!!

Today (Thursday, September 1st) The Helix and TheatreworX are delighted to announce that tickets are NOW on sale for its 2022/23 panto Hansel & Gretel.

All of the Helix panto favourites are back, including Buddy and Laurel played by Colin Hughes and Aidan Mannion.

The cast of this years’ Panto is bigger than ever before and includes Ireland's premier tenor Paul Byrom, the multi-talented Orla Jennings and AIMS award winner and funny man Chris Corroon as Dame Lola.

"We are thrilled to be back – bigger and better whilst ensuring the show must go on. Having learned valuable lessons over the past few years, Hansel & Gretel will be cover ready at all times with a talented understudy cast supporting our principal line up in a production with more laughs, more stunts and more costume changes than ever before."

The very successful online panto for schools nationwide and indeed internationally (schools signed up from as far away as Australia last year!) will take place again with an early bird fee of €395 till October 31st.

This allows schools to access the panto to students during school time from 14th to 21st December. Schools have found the online panto an excellent way of keeping costs down, whilst at the same time sharing the magic of panto with their young students.

Tickets are priced at €27.50 and are available now from www.thehelix.ie. Continuing with tradition a special sensory friendly performance will take place on 20th December at 6pm.
