Boom, boom, she's one foxy lady

Grand Opera House, Belfast

Tomorrow, until January 26

It's time to don the greasepaint, slap on a wig and some comedy udders and get in fine voice to roar 'Oh yes he is, oh no he isn't' as the curtain goes up on the annual Opera House panto.

This year's production is, as ever, an old favourite and it stars, as ever, another old favourite in veteran panto dame May McFettridge. She's not the only vintage star of the show, though, as joining the Belfast fishwife on stage to comedic effect will be that icon of television Basil Brush.

Adding a touch of glamour to proceedings will be local beauty Jayne Wisener in the title role, as the put-upon young scullery slave who shall go to the ball. And bringing up the rear (oh-err missus!) will be local stars Aidan O'Neill, Paddy Jenkins, Mark Adamson and Conleth Kane.

Expect all the usual fun and frolics for what promises to be another cracking Christmas family evening out.

Altogether now: 'He's behind you!'. Boom boom!

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Capricorn:

Your dry humour will be very popular. It's always difficult bringing a large group of people together. Everybody feels like they are walking on eggshells. After cracking a few jokes, you'll put the group at ease. Resist the temptation to make fun of relatives, especially the more sensitive members of the group. Nobody likes feeling singled out. Watching a light hearted comedy can also be a great way to generate a festive atmosphere. This is a time when people can put their differences aside.More
