In 2015 Hilda Fay acted alongside Richard Lynch, Keith Duffy, George McMahon, Richie Hayes, Leanne Moore and Myles Breen in a production of Limerick Panto Sleeping Beauty at the University Concert Hall in Limerick.
Richard Lynch commented on the production: “The role of the Dame is being played again this year by Limerick Panto veteran Myles Breen, Fair City’s “Mondo”, George McMahon, stars as the Prince, while Voice of Ireland and Celebrity Bainisteoir contestant Richie Hayes takes on the role of his best friend. My lovely friend Leanne Moore plays the Princess and gets to sing some great musical numbers and her voice is in tiptop form. This year there is a new addition to our cast, the lovely Hilda Fay who previously played “Tracey” for years in Fair City as the Wicked Queen and I will be playing her evil sidekick. With the biggest show-biz names in Panto, glitziest costumes, stunning sets, all the year’s rockin’ tunes and more laughs than you may be able to handle, it would be wise to book early as tickets are already selling fast.”
Following the success of the first Sensory Friendly panto performance in 2014, there was one of Sleeping Beauty at UCH on Wednesday December 23 at 2pm. It was thought out for children with special needs, with lower music, brighter lights and an absence of sudden noise or banging making this performance more accessible for some families. The show ran from December 16 to January 3.
