Hansel and Gretel

★★★★☆   Sweet treat

It’s back! Oh yes it is. After Covid sent the 2020 Brunton panto online, the regulars are once more live on stage before a very appreciative audience. Hansel and Gretel brings festive fun back to Musselburgh, bigger and better than ever.

Rapunzel: The Pantomime

Rapunzel: The Pantomime

★★★★★  Towering achievement

The Brunton’s panto is a little different this year – Oh yes it is! Covid means the Brunton’s 2020 offering was filmed, with smaller audiences able to watch Rapunzel in the venue’s cinema. As it turned out, tier changes meant that plan was abandoned, but a web link ensures kids of all ages don’t have to miss out.

Blitz!

Blitz!

★★★★☆  Explosive:

The Blitz spirit is alive and well and living in Musselburgh. More particularly, the Brunton Theatre, which is where you’ll find Lionel Bart’s unjustly forgotten follow-up to Oliver!, Blitz!.
