There was a buzz in the air when Carrick on Suir Musical Society launched its next production Robinson Crusoe to a large crowd in the Strand Theatre.

Padraig Sheehan gave a rundown of what this panto would entail and all the wonderful musical numbers involved. He spoke of how it was straight down to business with auditions being held two days later and since those auditions we can now announce the stellar cast of this year’s


Robinson will be played by Ray Nolan, his brother Rupert will be played by funny man Bobby Landers and their mother the Dame will be played by none other than the hilarious Fergus Power! Leading Lady Polly will be played by Siobhan Grace Regan and the sexy Nurse Ninny will be played by the infamous James Dowley.

Supporting roles will be offered by Ashley Cooke as Girl Friday, Audie Murphy as Major General, Caolan Deehy Power as Neptune, Deckie Smith Robinson as Harry, Irene Malone as Patsy & Pat Quinn Bolger as Edina, Jim Kennedy as Mr Lockheart, Marie Kelly as Reg and Sheridan Brady as BlackBiddy. Behind all these principals are acres of talent in minor roles and a large chorus.

We hope once more to have a hugely successful Panto and the show runs from the 15th to 22nd October 2017. Follow us on Facebook or Twitter for more info over the coming weeks.

Box Office will open shortly.
