Our King and Queen are Martin Lynch and Joan Kennedy.

This is Martin’s stage debut and he has taken to acting like a duck to water, and Joan is no stranger to the stage and we are delighted to have her with us this year.

“The Ugly Sisters” will be played by Ken Whelan and Liam Ó Mhaoldhomhnaigh, as Salmonella & Influenza!

Esmeralda - The Fairy Godmother - who is destined to get Cinderella to the Ball to meet her Prince Charming is played by the charismatic Lorraine Cormack, and meet Daniel Bowes’ “Dandini” the fun-loving Sidekick to Prince Charming.

He is on a mission to find a woman for the Prince, but he may find one or two women for himself along the way!
