A Tomb With A View

★★★☆☆ Ridiculous

Cheerfully ludicrous and staged with considerable craft, Edinburgh People’s Theatre’s production of A Tomb With A View is thoroughly entertaining.

Aladdin

Aladdin

★★★★☆    Magical:

Aladdin is Edinburgh People’s Theatre’s 67th consecutive pantomime but there is nothing tired about it. There may be baggy elements, but these are more than overcome by attention to comic detail, awareness of what really makes a panto and sheer good fun.

Let’s Face the Music and Dance 2018

★★★★☆ Packed:

There’s so much quality on stage at the Church Hill Theatre this week in choreographer Janice Bruce’s portmanteau production Let’s Face the Music and Dance, that you could easily make two programmes out of it.

EPT’s windy bottom

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.

Triple Decker of Comedy

★★★☆☆ Funny:
Full of energy and laughter, St Serf’s Players’ Triple Decker of Comedy is a patchy affair, but extremely endearing.
