Edinburgh People's Theatre (EPT) are well known for presenting a broad variety of productions ranging from straight drama through to the fun of the Christmas Pantomime. Our year is based around a schedule of up to five productions (including the Festival Fringe which we have been performing in since 1947) so there's always plenty going on for people to join in with, whatever their level of interest and experience both on stage and off.
Our next production, Cinderella by Paul Reakes, will be performed at Church Hill Theatre, Morningside Road, from Friday 15th to Saturday 23rd December 2023 (not Mondays). We look forward to seeing you there - details are listed below.
A new magical life for the popular fairy tale. Prince Charming is off gallivanting round the world and leaves Pantomania to be governed by the selfish Duke of Verruca. Cinderella has her own problems as she finds herself under the thumb of her wicked stepmother and her two ugly sisters Mattie and Hattie. When the prince returns the duke refuses to relinquish power. Luckily, faithful Buttons, his friend Kathy and of course the Fairy Godmother are around to work wonders. This is a laugh-a-minute panto for the young and the young at heart!

With Cinderella rehearsals well under way, we're looking for all sorts of help. Costumes, props, set build, front of house, crew, tech etc. and we need people like you.
