There’s nothing we love more than heading to the panto at Christmas time with the majority of the extended family in tow.

Today, The Helix at DCU announced that this year’s Christmas Panto produced once again by TheatreworX Productions will be the family fairy tale, Robin Hood.

A superb cast which includes, Ireland’s premier tenor, Paul Byrom will take to the stage for this magical production which runs from Friday, November 23, 2018, to Sunday, January 20, 2019.  

With all the wit, magic and fun, The Helix Panto, Robin Hood will captivate audiences of all ages with a magical story, lively music, song and dance, eye-catching sets and of course lots of laughs for all the family to enjoy.
