EDMUND Rice College is promising a hearty mixture of laughter, boos, cheers and tears for this year’s Christmas pantomime, ‘Peter Pan and the Lost Treasure’.

The Hightown school has been producing festive shows for more than 20 years, including the award winning Charlie Meets the Wizard, Mugsy Balone, Stooge, PieTown Road and 1987.

And this year’s production is sure to reach the school’s high standards with a range of characters performed by pupils past and present and a few teachers getting in on the act as well.

Producer Mary McGuigan is looking forward to the opening night and has guaranteed an immensely enjoyable evening for those attending.

She said: “It is another original script this year and I have to say there are quite a few laughs to be had with some of these characters.

“You never get tired of making the effort because the boys put so much into it and they absolutely love the whole pantomime atmosphere.

“I would urge anyone from the local community to come along and support the show and you will be guaranteed a cracking Christmas panto.”

The show opens on Tuesday, December 6 at 7.30pm with a second performance the following night (Wednesday, December 7). Family and individual tickets, at very reasonable prices, are available from the school office on Tel: 9084 8433.
