Summer Revels!

Wed 24 Jul - Sun 11 Aug, Various Times

Cork Opera House presents the brand new musical theatre summer spectacular show!



This show within a show will follow the hilarious and haphazard cast of the “SUMMER REVELS” as they perform their show against all the odds!

The star Diva, the accident prone Clown, the Magician with the big idea, the vocal audience members, the talent, the egos, and the hilarity and magic that goes into putting on a show is all difficult enough to manage without an over-enthusiastic Health and Safety Officer trying to shut the whole thing down! Only one thing’s for certain – THE SHOW MUST GO ON!

With a nod to the legendary Summer Revels that lit up Cork Opera House during the 70’s and 80’s, this new show is a Revels for 2024! It’s The Muppet Show meets The Play that Goes Wrong, its Saturday Night Live meets Kiss Me, Kate. It’s PANTO meets SUMMER MUSICALS!

Don’t miss this moment to be part of Cork Opera House’s new Summer Offering. Get your tickets now!

The 100% Cork company is led by one of Cork’s brightest lights on London’s West End – Claire O’Leary, fresh from her recent run at The London Palladium in Andrew Lloyd Webber’s new Wizard of Oz and following her West End debut in Les Misérables. Claire is joined by Cork theatre icons Declan Wolfe (RTE’s The DenThe Improv Panto), Michael Sands (The Sound of MusicAnnieThe Young Offenders) and Trevor Ryan (The Sound of Music).

The 17-strong professional ensemble also includes several Cork musical theatre performers who have been entertaining audiences nationally and internationally for years. Marie O’Donovan (Cork Adult Panto, Hysterical Histories), Thérèse O’Sullivan (Elf: The Musical), Alex Glennon (DisenchantedWest Side Story) and Fiona Kennedy (Sleeping Beauty) are all joined by Bandon’s Alison Arnopp of The Royal Shakespeare Company, who makes a welcome return to the Cork Opera House stage following her acclaimed appearance in The Cork Proms 2023: Broadway. Emerging Cork artist Precious Abimbola makes her professional debut surrounded by this stellar company.

This multi-disciplinary, eclectic cast also features characters from the worlds of circus – with Cormac Mohally (Lords of Strut, Body Brothers), magic – with local psychological magician Daniel Cremin, and music – with musical director Cathal Synnott (Riverdance, Gate Theatre’s Sweeney ToddOnce) leading a versatile band of Dylan Howe (Rowan), Patrick Lynch, Anastacia Beary and Aisling Dunne in the jukebox musical score of pop hits and musical theatre favourites.
