Good one BTQ1, that`s the year the set went on fire during the volcano scene and only for the prompt action of the backstage staff Newry Town Hall may have burned down ............................................................

Before my time I s'pose (well, I was seven and living 40 miles away, which in those days might have been on another planet!) but I didn't know that the 'Point pantos were performed in Newry as well!) It was the price that caught my eye, 3/6 reserved and 2/6....for those of you young enough NOT to remember old money, that's about seventeen and a half pence and twelve and a half pence respectively! I was trying to think of something to compare it with but can't think of anything cheap enough.....maybe a square of fudge in The Cabin or something!! I've been wondering if there was any other period in history where things changed as dramatically as they have done in the past fifty years since people of my generation have gone from childhood to 'maturity'.....doesn't sound as bad as old age!!

NB - Am I right in thinking that was the first time the Panto played elsewhere than the Point?
I'd forgotten about the Volcano fiasco. But then it was a very long time ago. I was nine years old!!

Opposite the Cathedral. and to answer Mags, Robinson Crusoe and Aladdin both travelled to Newry about that time,I`m not aware of any others but I could be wrong, later on at the request of Fr.McCauley all or part of one of the Pantos travelled to Saintfield .

Thanks Andy, I only remember going to Newry once.
So, perhaps I wasn't in it the other time. I know I didn't go to Saintfield.
Still, I have lovely memories of the pantos I was in, as I'm sure all others have too.

I Remember the "Pantomime" that went to "Lisburn" very well.
Bobby and I were married in July 1959 and it must have been
1960....My wedding dress went into cold storage to be taken
out sooner or later too be made into a christning robe.

Well xpaddy was the fairy queen and decided my dress would
be ideal..Anyway it was a horrible night and I think all the cast
had to walk some distance.

My dress was dragged through the muck and rain.
And fit for nothing....sorry xp. ::-(( ::-((

I remember that beautiful dress and loved
wearing it to play the "Fairy Queen".
It was a mess by the time I was finished
with it.

Sorry fishylady.
