The curtain has closed on Panto 2024, and what an unbelievable two weeks of sold-out performances bursting with fun, laughter, singing, dancing, amazing talent, and memories to last a lifetime!

An enormous amount of work, organisation and creativity goes into Watergate’s annual Panto. This year cast and crew totalling over 110 kids and adults from Kilkenny and surrounding areas brought the script written by Kilkenny native Mark Duffy to life on the Watergate stage for thirteen sold-out performances.

The Watergate also held its first ever relaxed performance which allowed audience members who benefit from a more relaxed performance the opportunity to enjoy Panto all the greater this year.

The Watergate Theatre is a registered charity, funded by The Arts Council and Kilkenny County Council. The Watergate Panto is the main annual fundraiser for the theatre and so the Watergate wishes to extend a heartfelt thank you to everyone involved for their hard work, time, and dedication. And thank you to all audience members for the continued support. We hope to see you return again throughout the year!
