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.

The Importance of Being Earnest

★★★☆☆ Judicious:
There is a studied air to Edinburgh People’s Theatre’s production of The Importance of Being Earnest that pays dividends, but also brings disadvantages.

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.
