The Helix Panto Online: The Sword in the Stone

Online, Saturday 19th December - Saturday 2nd January


Leave the boos of 2020 behind and bring some Panto-style festive cheer to your household.

Panto is such a central part of so many families’ Christmas tradition, it’s a challenge to see how this tradition could be maintained this year. But don’t fret, TheatreworX has devised a perfect solution by producing a special cinematic Panto experience for all the family to enjoy from the comfort of their own homes.

The Helix Panto will be Ireland’s first professional Online Panto and is a safe & exciting way of bringing the magic of Panto directly to your living rooms. So, this year, transform your homes into our magical Panto-land for the ultimate Family Christmas experience.

Our exciting all-new production of ‘THE SWORD IN THE STONE’ promises to be a panto as spectacular as ever, packed full of laughs, boos, cheers, songs, dances, amazing special effects and not to mention the extra level of fun and magic that we can add to our Theatre experience with a cinematic touch.


Join our heroes Pip (Fair City’s Amilia Stewart) and her brother Archie (Gavin Ryan) on their quest through the panto-sphere to claim the Sword of Hope and save Merryville. Eoin Cannon returns as the narcissistic baddie King Joffrey who fools the village into thinking that he has already raised the magical sword himself, while our Panto stalwarts and audience favorites’ Aidan Mannion (Laurel), Colin Hughes (Buddy) & James Deegan (Kevin the Gnome) guarantee an adventure laden with laughs and unbridled mischief. Finally, Chris Corroon (Lola) and Jacqueline Brunton (Windermere) will once again dazzle us in their fabulous frocks, amazing hair-do’s and diva-esque attitudes.

So, come join Archie and Pip on their magical adventure of intrigue excitement and fun.

Who will be the one to finally free the Sword from the Stone and rightfully claim the crown?

Will they all live happily ever after?
