Church Hill Theatre

Sunshine on Leith

Sunshine on Leith

★★★☆☆ Sunny intervals:
Tuneful and committed, Allegro’s production of Sunshine on Leith at the Church Hill is almost torpedoed by some peculiar staging choices.

Showcase 2016

Showcase 2016

★★★☆☆ Energetic variety:
Well staged, beautifully sung and dazzlingly eclectic, Showcase 2016 is not always consistent but certainly has something for everyone.

Seussical the Musical

Seussical the Musical

★★★☆☆ Wordy up:
Solidly entertaining if a little unfettered around the edges, LYAMC’s take on Seussical the Musical gets the tunes humming around the head and acrobatics sweeping across the stage.

Bothered and Bewildered

Bothered and Bewildered

★★★★☆ Hugely affecting:
Combining laughter and tears, all utterly genuine, Edinburgh People’s Theatre’s production of Bothered and Bewildered at the Church Hill is thoroughly successful.

SCDA One Acts

SCDA One Acts

★★★★☆ Varied:
By turns surreal, impeccably directed and heartbreaking, the first three finalists of the SCDA’s One-Act Festival finals ensured that the opening night lived up to its billing.

Blackadder Goes Forth

Blackadder Goes Forth

★★★★☆ Imaginative:
Sensitively acted and particularly well staged, EPT’s Blackadder Goes Forth is loyal to its source but has enough individuality to stand on its own.

The Producers

The Producers

★★★☆☆ Solid
It’s springtime for EMT and parody up at the Church Hill Theatre this week as the amateur musicals company bring their doughty staging of The Producers to life.

Guys and Dolls

Guys and Dolls

★★☆☆☆ Inconsistent entertainment:
Spirited but patchy and somewhat confused, the Edinburgh University Footlights production of Guys and Dolls at the Church Hill Theatre is enjoyable but falls short of what it might be.

Cinderella

Cinderella

★★★★☆ Charming:
Music, dance, fun, bizarre cross-dressing and genuine enjoyment are all in evidence in Edinburgh People’s Theatre’s Cinderella at the Church Hill. In other words, it is a proper old-fashioned pantomime – and a very good one too.

Lovers

Lovers

★★★☆☆ Emotive:
There’s a truth and vulnerability to Leitheatre’s take on Brian Friel’s early pair of conjoined plays, Lovers: Winners and Losers, at the Church Hill to Saturday.
