Edinburgh Panto Season (27 November 2012 - 20 January 2013)

November to January is traditionally panto season in the UK, when towns and cities all over the country put on their festive shows and the rafters ring to the calls of 'He's behind you!' Usually adapted from children’s stories, these popular theatre productions follow a well-known format, bringing together a mix of comic characters, audience participation and twists on classic tales.

In Edinburgh, the two main productions for 2012 are Mother Goose at the King’s Theatre and Cinderella at the Lyceum Theatre. There are also local performances of Puss in Boots at the Brunton Theatre and Frankenstein at St. Serf's Church Hall.

Mother Goose at the King's Theatre

Mother Goose (1 December 2012 – 20 January 2013)

The King’s Theatre’s annual show is always extremely popular and this year’s production of Mother Goose promises to be ‘one golden egg of a show’ with ‘true eggs-factor’. Starring Allan Stewart as Mother Goose, Andy Gray as Elvis McSporran and Grant Stott as The Demon Vanity. Tickets.

Cinderella (29 November – 29 December 2012)

A modern day version of the traditional story, described by the creators as ‘a 21st century tale of love and loss’. With original songs, magic spells and lots of laughs, there’s something for all the family in this high quality production. Tickets.

Puss in Boots (27 November 2012 – 5 January 2013)

The Brunton Theatres’ panto this year is Puss in Boots. Telling the story of the smartest cat in Musselburgh, this panto stars a cast of professional actors and a chorus of young performers from the local community. Tickets.

Frankenstein – The Panto (28 November – 1 December 2012)

An unusual and refreshing choice for panto, Frankenstein, is performed by local amateur dramatics group the St. Serf Players. Tickets.

Don't forget the family favourite, ALADDIN, being performed at the Church Hill Theatre, Morningside Road - 21st to 30th December 2012.
