It was a great show that is carrying on the tradition of family
entertainment in Warrenpoint. The innocence of it all, and in
particular, the children doing their dancing routines, was a joy to
watch in these times of decedence. It has all the essence of our
old culture which should be preserved (and which you are trying to
keep in mind through the medium of this site) and the only sure
way of doing this is by turning up to their performances and
showing your appreciation.

The year the DOE foisted that concrete carbunkle on the Point [the Bus shelter] a great verse was coined in that year's Panto..it involved the part of the show[normally after the Witch had been despatched] wherein Christy.Jean,Margaret Hughes,Bobby Reoch and Elizabeth Boyle would perform a skit/song with lot's of local references..Oliver Havern alway's used to get a mention here[ to thunderous appaluse, and he is still reminded of such today when he pop's into the Vic from time to time]
the verse went I think from memory

"Now old Joe Cooper love's the square,but he say's they are trying to spoil it,instead of giving us a bus shelter,we've got another toilet"![I believe it was to the tune of "Hey ho the Witch is dead"]..good stuff.

Completely off track here Jones Hill but I wonder if you could confirm something for me.Is it true that when your family made the move to Ardallan pk you were all pestering your mother to have a phone put in the house to which she replied "I'm not having one of those big red boxes in my hall" :rotfl:

Joanne to be honest a Red Phone Box in the hall would not have put us out that much,the fear was our Harry might take one of Fossett's elephant's home,as he was of the opinion that this was required for him to make a trunk call .... talking of phone's in our house my Mother used to put on a very posh Newry accent[now there's a collector's item] when talking to the speaking clock!..going slightly of topic[but then I shall return] in one instance the Rt Honourable Richard Needham 6th Earl of Kilmorey called the house looking for me [absolutely true,as I worked with a cousin of his]] and when my Mother realised who it was she morphed into the character that Hyacinth Bouqet was based on... :))

Actually getting back to the Panto over the years quite a few of us where involved in the various choruses but one that stick's out in my memory was "Ali Baba "which was performed around 1968 [I was not involved,but went to see it along with Fourthroad and co,and we where enthralled by Leslie Simpson's performance as the Red Shadow] anyway our Harry was in the senior chorus,pictures of this feature elsewhere,Harry being the consumate professional alway's liked his costume to be pristine in appearence[think of Robert Preston as Digby Geste]. My Mother was ironing his Foreign Legionaire's uniform,when she was momentarily distracted by the noise of my Father thumping the side of the tv in order to improve the reception, and subsequently the cuff was scorched. Harry [at best a shameless ham] was beside himself with annoyance.."how on earth am I going to go on stage with my uniform looking like this" he pleaded in a heartfelt manner, now thoroughally broken ...my Mother rather unhelpfully replied "dance faster and nobody will notice",subsequently for eight evening and three matinee performances Harry was at least four step's in front of the rest of the chorus,an argument could be made that he introduced a rudimentary version of "hip hop" a full twenty years before it entered the realm's of popular youth culture...what poor Arthur Burn's made of it all has never been fully recorded,and maybe that is just as well.

One of my daughters has never forgiven me for not allowing her to be in the Panto......I always said it was too late at night for wee ones to be out! Looking at all the fantastic Panto pics on the forum I realise what a mistake that was...all that fun & craic she missed because I was playing the over-protective mother! :[
