The Olympia Theatre's Christmas 2012 pantomime Jedward and the Magic Lamp provides an unforgettable evening of hilarity for the whole family.  Packed with brilliant comedy, stunning song and dance routines and dazzling costumes.  

The Olympia Theatre in Dublin welcomes you to a captivating re-telling of a time-honoured classic, with a contemporary touch, that is sure to enthrall the bright-eyed dreamer in everyone.  Jedward are once again joined by the wonderful Linda Martin, Fair City’s Ryan Andrews and the outrageous Al Porter.

Christine along with Linda Martin and Jedward, helped raise funds for Dogs Aid at the Olympia Theatre after a sell-out production of Jedward and the Magic Lamp.

Dogs Aid is a charity set up by three ladies in 1987 to help dogs that were unwanted and abandoned in Dublin, Ireland. Since then they have helped rehabilitate and rehome hundreds of dogs. Dogs Aid has a no destruction policy so they never put a recoverable dog down and, as a result, the sanctuary is a permanent home for many forever dogs that are "too old or too bold" to be rehomed.
