Now, having missed out on last year's panto due to Covid restrictions, John couldn't be happier to be back playing 'Dame McFetty' in Goldilocks and the Three Bears. Regardless of the feelings of her two daughters Audrey and Gemma, she enlists the help of Mr Proudfoot, a part time medium from Ahoghill. May McFettridge [John Linehan] brings to the part all the warmth, comedy and feeling for flawed humanity that she is famous for. This year’s show will be spectacularly brought to life from page to stage by a talented cast and creative team and features the Grand Opera House pantomime hallmark of an abundance of comedy, sensational songs and dance numbers, fabulous costumes, stunning scenery, and special effects.

Other team members were: John Linehan (aka May McFettridge), Gene Fitzpatrick and William Caulfield. I recognised him from the Jack and the Beanstalk pantomime in which he stole the show with his humour; timing and sense of fun. It follows May (who asked for her age to be listed as 51, because she “was born in a leap year” — but John is 71) as she seeks to contact her dead sister to fulfil a promise made to her, with the help of her two daughters Audrey and Gemma. You can get drinks or food pre show but I would recommend going elsewhere in the city before attending. The 68-year-old entertainer and actor from north Belfast is a familiar sight in Northern Ireland's panto scene where he performs as hilarious alter ego May McFettridge.She was joined by her side-kick Paddy Jenkins who featured in the Oscar and BAFTA award-winning short film An Irish Goodbye, as The Wicked Queen’s Henchman.

It is 10 years since May McFettridge first swanned out on to the stage of the Belfast Grand Opera House, seized the Christmas pantomime by the scruff of its scrawny neck and gave it a good pummelling. Stunning scenery, lighting, breathtaking choreography and jaw-dropping costumes, especially during a winter wonderland scene, added to the magic of this fairytale story of good defeating evil. 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). It is 36 years since May McFettridge burst onto Ulster’s entertainment scene, a gap-toothed, pop-sock wearing wee woman from north Belfast, with trowelled on make-up and a tongue so sharp it could strip paint off Stormont’s walls. Can Belle see beyond the monster and fall in love with her captor before the last petal falls from the enchanted rose?I just found it so hard last year," he admitted to Belfast Live, speaking in the Grand Opera House after a matinee performance of Goldilocks. It’s a great play, it’s a five-hander about the known and unknown by a woman who knows nothing in the first place. YouTube sets this cookie to measure bandwidth, determining whether the user gets the new or old player interface. Frosch, like May, would be fond of the bottle and usually ends up involved in mishaps and mayhem sprinkled with confusion and bewilderment.

is the 145th anniversary of the premiere of Die Fledermaus, having first been performed in Vienna in 1874. Then I have my own circus, McFetty's Circus, and my animals are free to roam and they're all good and great. It is a farce about men taking liberties, women taking control, and the dangers of dressing up as a bat. I like my beer but you have to have a big crowd and be the centre of attention at Fortwilliam Golf Club.

He will perform as usual with fellow Ulster comedians, John Linehan (aka May McFettridge), Gene Fitzpatrick and William Caulfield. Dresden-born Stephan Loges, who will perform the role of Falke, has given recitals throughout the world, including regular appearances at Wigmore Hall, London as well as Carnegie Hall, New York, Concertgebouw Amsterdam, Vienna Konzerthaus, Klavierfestival Ruhr, La Monnaie Brussels, Schleswig-Holstein Festival, Santiago de Compostela, BBC Radio 3 and the Musée d’Orsay, Paris. May will be joined on stage by the hilarious Phil Walker, who recently toured with comedy superstar Jason Manford, as Muddles, and Paddy Jenkins who featured in the Oscar and BAFTA award-winning short film An Irish Goodbye, as The Wicked Queen’s Henchman. This year she will be joined by star of stage and screen Ben Richards (Footballers’ Wives, Holby City, Hollyoaks, The Bodyguard) as well as comedy magician and Britain’s Got Talent favourite Mandy Muden and panto favourites Paddy Jenkins and Georgia Lennon. May will, of course, be singing in Beauty and The Beast, which includes both original and familiar songs – like Flash Bang Wallop from the musical Half a Sixpence, which many will know from Tommy Steele's recording.
