These girls are all a good bit younger than Della or Noreen.The girl in the middle with her arms in the air did a ballet solo in this panto.She is Ann McGivern from East St(her mother was May McGivern who taught in St Peter's boys school)

Joanne - thanks for that info.
You know I was thinking of that
whenever I was doing the post,
that I might have the age difference
mixed up. ::-((

Deirdre - Glad you enjoy the posts.
Thanks.
You are a great contributor yourself,
and I enjoy reading those as well.
It's thanks to Brian for starting the Forum,
and keeping it going, with all his hard
work. >:d<
It's a great way to keep in touch with
people, and to know what is going on in
Warrenpoint, for us "ex pats".

Art,In the "panto 50th anniversary book"the fairies for 1973(Jack and the beanstalk) are all named and the names don't coincide with this picture.I was a fairy in 1967 (Cinderella),there was no panto in 1968.So the picture is either from 1969 Ali Baba,1970 Mother Goose or 1971 Wizard of Oz .There is also a photo in the book of the entire cast of Aladdin 1972,and some of the girls who are in this fairy photo are in the junior chorus by then.
Also,I don' think there are fairies in Ali Baba ;--)

I would rule out 1969.I remember Ann doing the ballet in the panto it was the talk of the town next day.
