Longford's Backstage Youth Theatre to perform  special sensory-friendly version of popular panto

The sell-out panto of the year is back this weekend for a very special audience.

Backstage Youth Theater has teamed up with the Backstage Theatre to bring a very special sensory-friendly version of the overwhelmingly popular 'The Lost Princesses', featuring excerpts for children with special needs.

It's all kicking off this Saturday, March 2 at 3pm and promises to be a fantastic afternoon for little ones - especially if the incredible feedback of recent Longford audiences is anything to go by.

Find out what happens when those pesky bookworms jumble up the books in the fairytale library and the princesses find themselves in the wrong story: Sleeping Beauty and her Fairy Flora end up in Cinderalla's story, while Cinderella and her Fairy Godmother find themselves in the Three Bears' House and Princess Anna and Olaf end up in Rapunzel's Tower and don't know how to escape.

Backstage has produced a special information pack featuring everything you need to know about Backstage & the show; the people you’ll meet and the rooms you’ll see. They will also have a dedicated quiet space available during the show.

Backstage is also happy to arrange for people to visit the theatre before the performance so everything will be familiar on the day.

Tickets for The Sensory Friendly Lost Princesses Panto on Saturday March 2 at 3pm are selling fast, so book yours on 043 33 47888 and www.backstage.ie.

This very special performance of The Lost Princesses is supported by Creative Ireland and Longford County Council.
