It could be the late Brian King? Brian passed away in the summer of 1974, so what year was that pantomime?

Mourne Drive has got them all..
I think this was The Wizard of Oz 1971 ?
Mickey Dinsmore and myself actually auditioned for solo singing parts in this Panto,however our efforts [forgive me Mickey] were really quite dreadful and reside somewhere on the cutting room floor of Panto out takes ..our audition piece was "Follow the Yellowbrick Road".

Doobie your old neighbour and make up artiste extradinaire Joe Cooper was certainly quite liberal with the pancake and rouge....could be doing with some of it today.
A fair proportion of that chorus look a tad too comfortable in thick make up...!
I remember Petey Moore,that laid back cat from Clonallon Gardens was assisting Joe one night in the make up department..the result was that the boys chorus in their entirity looked like somebody you might fight in an Abilene cathouse..

of course btq1 it was indeed Jim Cooper ..apologies to Jim
btq1 maybe you would remember this..one night during i think "Jack and the Beanstalk" 1973?,there was a bomb scare called in and the Town Hall was evacuated,the audience via the front door and the cast,chorus and crew via the back entrance.We [cast/chorus/crew] assembled in Kings Lane,as usual with Panto tradition the show was running for a week in February and for some reason we in the boys chorus were dressed in the attire of Ukranian peasents[don't ask] and we were absolutely frozen,as was everybody else,the mood was black and everybody was despondent...then up to the plate steps Jim Cooper,and in the best tradition of "the show must go on",he divided the entire assemblage into two half's and then issued the following directive.."I want this side ere, to sing Its a long way to Tipperary and this side ere to sing Pack all your troubles in your old kit bag..the Dunkirk spirit,the very spirit of the blitz was alive and well in Kings Lane that night,all we neeed to complete the comparison was strong willed lady in a floral print dress holding a placard with the moniker "Up your's Adolf" clearly visable....back then i am quite certain there was no shortage of strong willed ladies in floral print dresse's.

That looks like young O'Hagen (Len Snr's son)after Damien Stewart

::-(( ::-(( It is Brian. Not sure if Jim was ever in a panto but will say this Jim was a lovely singer (The man who broke the bank at Monte Carlo) not sure if that is the right title of the song. :--)
