Reporters: The Panto team!
It’s been flat to the mat in recent weeks as the BCCNS TYs worked tirelessly to prepare for an unmissable event in the BCCNS calendar… the annual TY Panto!
We have lots to report on over the next while when it comes to our show-stopping ‘Adrian, The Alternative Pantomine’ — but for now, we rounded up some of the key players involved to tell you what it was like being part of or helping out at this fantastic show.
Alanna Hogan, Dancer:
“The panto was a really good and enjoyable bonding experience for our year. It took a lot of time and dedication, but it was all worth it in the end when we presented the greatest show in BCCNS panto history!”
Aoife Byrne, Sleeping Beauty:
“The panto was a really good experience with all my friends that help us all to become more confident as we all went on stage. We all had so much fun.”
Jasmine Gohery, Prosecution:
“I really enjoyed being part of the panto it was an enjoyable experience. It took time and dedication but we had lots of fun along the way. I would definitely love to have the opportunity to do something like that again.”
Ella Flynn, Dancer:
“It was really brilliant to be part of the panto. It was a very exciting experience I loved every moment of it, I wouldn’t change a thing.”
Sean Daly, Lord Chamberlain:
“I loved doing the panto because I got to do a role in acting and I got to do a dancing role as well. It took us two months to complete and I loved every bit of it. I only learned my lines of the week before the show!!”
Alex Coonan, Set design and props:
“I loved doing my job in the panto because I got to get out of class! As well as that, painting the sets for me was the most enjoyable bit because it was very relaxing and there was no pressure on you by teachers or anything like that.”
Morgan Glynn, Pinnochio
“The panto was good, it was very enjoyable. It took up a lot of time but it ended up good fun.”
Evan Mannion, Jack:
“All the teachers and everyone involved especially Ms McDowell and Ms Dewane were very professional and helpful during the whole pantomime and we all had great enjoyment, the show, characters and the dances progressed more and more as the weeks went on it was a once in a lifetime opportunity and it was a great experience.”
