Thoroughly Modern Millie

★★☆☆☆   Shiny-edged:

Exhilarating moments and a couple of great individual performances ensure a shiny edge to Encore’s production of Thoroughly Modern Millie at the Brunton to Saturday.

Spamalot!

Spamalot!

★★★★☆ Laugh-out-Loud:
Staged with great exuberance by the Musselburgh Amateur Musical Association, Spamalot! – at the Brunton to Saturday – is an infectiously joyful affair.

All in a Knight’s Work…

All in a Knight’s Work…

Spamalot? It’s the big MAMA show:
Cheeky, cheerful and packed with a bunch of risque references, Monty Python’s Spamalot at the Brunton from Wednesday, is something of a change of style for the Musselburgh Amateur Musical Association.

Oliver!

Oliver!

✭✭✭✩✩ Cheeky swagger:
One of the most charming things about an Encore production is that you can always consider yourself part of the family. And their take on Lionel Bart’s Oliver! at the Brunton is as cheeky and cheerful as you would expect, while still managing to deliver a menacing undertone.

Me and My Girl

Me and My Girl

✭✭✭✭✩ “Go there, stay there!”

Encore, the East Lothian-based amateur theatre company, certainly deserve their applause as they take the musical journey from Lambeth Walk to Hampshire in a bright My and My Girl.
