A Note from the Production Team

Hi everyone and welcome!

CINDERELLA! Wow! We are so excited to be creating Watergate Theatre Productions presentation of the beautiful classic Panto, Cinderella, for January 2017.  Our artistic, creative, production and management teams are already busily working on every aspect of the show to ensure that this show really delivers.

Cinderella is one of the best loved fairy-tales in the world and presented as a Panto, it has everything and more - magic, beauty, comedy, friendship, and a very big dress!

Couple all of this with colourful sets, flamboyant costumes, stunning choreography, fabulous music and of course, a wonderful cast, and you have a winning combination.

We especially welcome families and children...

Oh no we don’t!... OH YES WE DO! 

And don’t forget to dress up! Every show is a Princess/Hero show.  Visit the Kids Corner for more details and lots more fun things to do.

So, we would love to see you and your family at the Watergate Theatre to experience the wonder of Cinderella.  We know it will be a magical memorable experience for all who see it.

See you in January!

This year the quill has been handed to Bennetsbridge based man Joe Murray.

Joe is well known to Kilkenny audiences having been a part of such diverse groups as Pan Players, New Theatre Group, Gaslight Theatre Company and Watergate Productions.

Involved with the Watergate Theatre since it opened in ’93, he’s recognised as a superb conversationalist and his many published sketches and short stories bear testament to his mastery of the written word.

We all wish Joe well as he accepts the onerous challenge of completing his inaugural full script. Joe is joined by an excellent production team.
