The Auld Alliance

✭✭✭✭✩ Entente Cordiale

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.

The Fairmer Wants A Wife

The Fairmer Wants A Wife

✭✭✭✭✩ Warm and funny:
There is nothing remotely groundbreaking about EPT’s The Fairmer Wants A Wife at Mayfield Church. What is provided is a thoroughly enjoyable, very well presented piece of Scottish comedy.

Sister Act

Sister Act

★★★★☆ Heavenly heights:
Huge and tuneful fun can be had in The Bohemians’ production of Sister Act. A move to the King’s Theatre has not daunted the company – rather, it seems to have inspired them to be bigger, grander and better.
