John Linehan, 71, is the person who knows her better than most and the story of how May became May is one of happenstance. Northern Ireland’s largest pantomime is back for another magical year at the Grand Opera House, Belfast with Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs. I love it, you’re meeting a lot of people for the first time and I’m still in contact with people I performed with years and years ago in it.

And from now until January 15, children and adults alike can expect laugh-out-loud comedy, stunning scenery and beautiful costumes as May stars as the Fairy Godmother in Cinderella – clocking up a record-breaking 32 Grand Opera House pantomime seasons. Then I have my own circus, McFetty's Circus, and my animals are free to roam and they're all good and great. He’s English, but he can do the auld Belfast accent great, because of his granny living in East Belfast. The bust will be kept permanently on view in the Grand Circle of the theatre opposite the bust of Frank Matcham, the architect of the building.Jimmy, 72, with his funny hat and his wellies on the wrong feet, will be reading his letter from his Mammy and getting up to his usual shenanigans. We have been before for the usual panto outing to the GOH but I have to say that this year surpassed all previous performances. As a hr professional, I am constantly reminding colleagues that it is highly likely we will all be working until 70 or 80 years of age. Other team members were: John Linehan (aka May McFettridge), Gene Fitzpatrick and William Caulfield. When asked about the turnaround between A Happy Medium wrapping, and the start of rehearsals for Snow White, John shared a notable admission.

Aptly entitled ‘ You Must Be Joking,’ four of Northern Ireland’s most experienced comedians took to the stage and offered up a non-stop series of gags, impersonations and light-hearted songs that easily curried the audience’s favor. Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs is directed and choreographed by Jonny Bowles who won Best Choreography for the Theatre’s production of Goldilocks and the Three Bears at the 2022 Pantomime Awards, and lighting design is by Graham McLusky who was nominated for Best Lighting Design at The Great British Pantomime Awards in 2018.

Or will the Beast’s selfishness cost him the world he once knew and the hand of the girl who has melted his heart? This cookie can only be read from the domain they are currently on and will not track any data while they are browsing other sites.

Since that time, Linehan has topped the bill as his character in the Christmas Pantomime in the Grand Opera House in Belfast for thirty consecutive years (2019/20 season). County Down soprano Maria McGrann (Adele) is a graduate of Queen’s University Belfast and the Royal Irish Academy of Music, Dublin. The appeal is obvious - May McFettridge brings a hilariously Northern Irish twist to whatever magical fairytale she's in.In my game you are not working five days a week unless you are doing panto and then that's six days a week for eight weeks.
