"That's Cinderella", Cahir's first pantomime for many years, took place from Thursday the 5th to Sunday the 8th of January 2012 in the Parochial Hall, Cahir.
To say that the production was a rousing success is a bit of an understatement and it created quite a buzz in the town for several weeks. The smiles on the faces of the audiences as they left the hall, having given the cast standing ovations at several performances, said it all. The performances, the singing and the band were excellent.
The success of the show came on several levels. The audiences clearly enjoyed it and this was the most satisfying element for the cast and the production team. The cast enjoyed it and are itching to do more. There is already talk about next year's panto but a summer show is also being discussed. It might be hard to believe but most of the cast had never been in a stage production before. Nerves were terrible at times but they have all 'got the bug' now. Just as importantly a lot more people have said that they would like to get involved in the next show, either on stage or helping in other ways.
Another big success was the community spirit shown throughout the rehearsals and the performance week. Lots of people in the town and surrounding areas helped out in many ways and everyone involved with the show volunteered their services. This was a true community effort from the town and from the surrounding area.
One of the standing ovations was a bit special. Usually a few people stand, a few people follow and then the rest feel obliged to do the same, but on this occassion the entire audience stood as one—instantly.
Congratulations to all involved for a job very well done.
