EPT’s windy bottom

Has beans not has-beens in Panto land:

Edinburgh People’s Theatre doesn’t give a hill of beans for modern turns on panto tradition, just the usual bag of magic ones, as the company prepares the Church Hill Theatre for Jack and the Beanstalk, its 66th consecutive pantomime.

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.

When We Are Married

✭✭✭✭✩ Charming fun:
Snappy, engaging and funny, Edinburgh People’s Theatre’s production of J.B. Priestley’s When We Are Married mines a rich seam of humour in the timeless subjects of marital discord and snobbery.
