For many in Edinburgh the Christmas holiday would not be the same without a traditional visit to one of Edinburgh’s famous Pantomimes.
In Edinburgh this year we have two great pantomimes to choose from, and if you are visiting Edinburgh then you too have a lucky choice to make. At The King’s Theatre at Bruntsfield Place, we have Grant Stott, Andy Gray and Allan Stewart playing riotous characters in Cinderella. The show runs from 3rd December until 22nd January and promises to be as laughter filled as it always is. Reviews already in say the regular trio are on top form with their banter.
At The Royal Lyceum Theatre, Grindlay Street we have a lavish production of Beauty and The Beast. Running from 25th November to 31st December. Karen Traynor and Nicola Roy steal the show playing the Ugly Sisters, and reviews in say the show is amazing!
There are several smaller venues running Pantomimes, in particular check out The Churchill Theatre in Morningside. Theatrical group The People’s Theatre put on a panto every year at the Churchill Theatre and it is a must see. While you will find a less polished performance than those of the bigger venues, you are still guaranteed to be howling with laughter laughing in true panto fashion. This year their chosen production, Mother Goose, runs from 23rd until the 31st of December.
