Dale Farm is reprising its role as sponsor of the Grand Opera House pantomime for another three years, a partnership which will see the local dairy company support Northern Ireland’s largest and most successful panto for more than 10 years.
The current show tells the magical story of Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs and is spectacularly brought to life from page to stage by a talented cast and creative team from Crossroads, the biggest pantomime producer in the world.
With guaranteed laughter, sensational song and dance numbers, fabulous costumes, stunning scenery and some magical special effects thrown in, the show promises an enchanting spectacle to entertain people of all ages.
The collaboration is driven by Dale Farm’s ongoing commitment to support the Northern Ireland arts sector, and the magic that happens when friends and family come together to experience the wonder of live festive entertainment.
Outlining the ongoing partnership Caroline Martin, Corporate Marketing and Communications Manager, Dale Farm said:
“Dale Farm is a farmer-owned, local company that is family focused and we are proud to continue our very successful partnership with the Grand Opera House panto, which is a real family festive favourite.
"Bringing family and friends together has never been more important and as a local brand which is at the heart of family occasions, we believe the panto provides a unique opportunity to reach various generations and help them make unforgettable and magical memories.”
Welcoming the continued support of Dale Farm, Ian Wilson, Chief Executive, Grand Opera House added:
“Our fabulous creative team and cast have excelled themselves once again to deliver what is the Theatre’s biggest pantomime yet. We are delighted that Dale Farm has agreed to extend their successful sponsorship of the Grand Opera House, a move that will bring our partnership to over 10 years, a significant milestone for all involved.
“Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs has all the usual ingredients of laughter, song and dance that audiences expect from the Theatre’s panto, but as always will have some magical surprises.
"From opening to the final show mid-January, we are expecting an audience of over 75,000 and I can assure them all that they are in for another unmissable Grand Opera House festive treat. With limited tickets remaining we would encourage people to book now to avoid disappointment.”
To add even more delight to the panto experience, audiences of all ages will be able to enjoy delicious Dale Farm ice cream at kiosks throughout the Grand Opera House and take part in online prize giveaways.
The show will run at the Grand Opera House until Sunday 14th January 2024.
