Chairperson of the Inchicore Variety Group, Kay O’Keefe, told The Echo: “It’s a funny pantomime. There will be plenty of music and dancing, and there will be some lovely costumes too.

“We chose to perform Cinderella because it’s very popular with children – every child knows Cinderella.

“We’ve a very good cast, and everyone gets on very well.

“The kids love it.”

Kay added: “We also have a few new people who have joined the group who will be in the panto as well, and we’re delighted to have them.”

The entire cast are performing on a voluntary basis, giving a real community feel to proceedings where the true gain for the performers comes from making the audience laugh.
