Church Hill Theatre
✭✭✭✩✩ Enjoyable fantasy:
Lively and hugely likeable, Opera Camerata’s production of The Tales of Hoffmann is a largely pacy and accomplished affair.
✭✭✭✩✩ On song:
Returning to the Church Hill Theatre for their 25th annual production, Showcase provide a fitting tribute for the theatre’s own fiftieth anniversary on 25 September 2015.
“✭✭✭✩✩ Paddling hard”
Boasting a succession of well-choreographed ensemble moments, LYAMC’s production of Honk!, at the Church Hill Theatre to Saturday, also hits strong notes on the vocal front.
✭✭✭✭✩ Head and heart:
Informative, intelligent and packing a considerable emotional punch, Edinburgh People’s Theatre’ world premiere of A Guid Cause is subtle, complex and intriguing.
✭✭✭✩✩ Intoxicating talent:
Edinburgh Grand Opera’s version of L’elisir d’amore is a reduced arrangement, it’s cut in places and designed to suit the intimate Church Hill Theatre. That doesn’t mean that it cuts out any of the drama.
✭✭✭✭✩ Charming fun:
Snappy, engaging and funny, Edinburgh People’s Theatre’s production of J.B. Priestley’s When We Are Married mines a rich seam of humour in the timeless subjects of marital discord and snobbery.
✭✭✭✭✩ Pawn free:
Attention to theatrical detail brings out some gloriously complex and layered moments in Edinburgh Music Theatre’s production of Chess, at the Church Hill Theatre to Saturday.
✭✭✭✩✩ Satisfying thriller:
Short on genuine thrills but consistently enjoyable, the Edinburgh Makars’ production of Francis Durbridge’s A Touch of Danger is a somewhat contrived thriller made more interesting by considered performances.
✭✭✭✭✩ Vibrant and affecting:
Brassy, colourful and oozing vitality, Edinburgh University Footlight’s production of Rent matches its good intentions with a high level of achievement.
✭✭✭✩✩ Pure panto:
Big on audience participation and packed with boldly bad jokes, Edinburgh Peoples Theatre version of Dick Whittington at the Church Hill Theatre to Sunday 28, will delight fans of real pantomime.
