It wouldn’t be Christmas without a visit to the Gaiety Panto! 
 
Get tangled up with laughter as Rapunzel is this year's Gaiety Panto.
 
Let down your hair and join us as the Gaiety Panto give this marvellous tangled tale its magical, lavish and fun-loving touch with performances from 26th November 2017 until the 7th January 2018. Tickets priced from €19.50 (including booking fee and restoration levy) go on sale this Friday 15th September.
 
This is no ordinary panto, it's the Gaiety Panto!
 
A pantomime extravaganza with singing, dancing and laugh out loud shenanigans - hair, there and everywhere!  Join us as we follow Rapunzel on her hair-larious and hair-raising adventures as she tries to escape her Evil-Stepmother who has locked her away in the secret tower. 
 
Legendary panto dame Joe Conlan, who celebrates his 28th year in the industry, will play "Nanny Ninny Noonah" and is joined by Ciara Lyons as "Rapunzel", Johnny Ward as "Johnny B Goode" and Nicholas Grennell as the King "Larry Lilly Loolah".

The Gaiety Theatre has hosted the annual Christmas Panto each year since 1873.  Today, families come from far and wide to experience the Gaiety Christmas Panto and for many it has become as much a family Christmas tradition as Santa himself!
