Cinderella The Panto

Cinderella The Panto

★★★★☆ Melodious

Balerno Theatre Company’s Christmas show at the Church Hill is a treat for all ages. Cinderella The Panto is stuffed full of tunes, features some pleasingly old-school pantomime business and is performed with a great deal of heart.

Vanity Fair

★★★☆☆   Jam packed

Leitheatre’s Vanity Fair at the Church Hill Theatre is a well directed, well acted production that falls victim to many of the problems inherent in putting a sprawling novel on the stage.
