THE Panto season is in full swing with Basement Productions presenting ‘Scrooge’ for the next two weekends in Ballyfermot.

The group has put on a panto in the Ballyfermot/Cherry Orchard area for the past three years.

Based on Charles Dickens’s A Christmas Carol, Scrooge is undoubtedly a classic which has stood the test of time.

 Basement Productions is presenting the show in two locations over two weekends.

This weekend, Scrooge will be presented at The Orchard Centre, Cherry Orchard, around the corner from St Ultan’s school.

The first showing of the classic Charles Dickens story was staged last weekend, with the production company brining the play to the stage to the Familibase. 

Familibase is located on Blackditch Road, opposite the swimming pool and all-weather pitches.

The times are 4pm and 7pm for both Saturday and Sunday, January 18/19.

Tickets are just €5 and family deals are available.

Tickets are available from Ballyfermot Library, The Orchard Centre or at the door on the night.

For more information ring 087 279 6993 or message the group on their Facebook page.
