It wouldn’t be Christmas without a visit to the Gaiety Panto! 
 
Extra performances for Robin Hood and His Merry Men, this year's Gaiety Christmas Panto, have been added due to phenomenal public demand. The show, now running, must end 22 January 2017. 
 
The Gaiety Panto opened to sold out performances on Monday and Tuesday this week and will host its star studded grand opening tonight, Wednesday 30 November. A limited number of tickets for dates up to 8 January 2017 from €19.50 (including booking fee and restoration levy) are on sale now with brand new extra dates added from 12 January until 22 January 2017 also on sale.
 
A Pantomime Extravaganza packed full of merriment with singing, dancing and laughter, join us as we follow Robin Hood and His Merry Men on their adventures in Sherwood Forest but but beware of the evil Sheriff as he greedily collects the ever growing taxes.
Red Rock's David Crowley stars as Robin Hood and is joined by legendary panto dame Joe Conlan, who celebrates his 27th year in the industry, as Nanny Knickerbocker Gloria, Kate Gilmore as Maid Marian and Nicholas Grennell, a Gaiety Theatre Panto legend having played over many years chorus member, hero, and baddie as Cedric the Sheriff of Snottingham. 
 
This Christmas, The Gaiety Panto will give this timeless tale its familiar lavish and fun-loving touch. The Gaiety Theatre has hosted the annual Christmas Panto each year since 1873 and for the past 143 years has given the people of Dublin opera, musicals, dramas, revues, comedy, concerts, dance and pantomime. Today, families come from far and wide to the Gaiety Christmas Panto and for many it has become a true Christmas tradition.
