Edinburgh People’s Theatre once again performs THE Annual Church Hill Theatre Pantomime with the magical adventures of Humpty Dumpty. With something for all audiences aged between 3 and 93. Bring the family and let EPT transport you away from the stresses of the Christmas festivities to a magical, fairytale land.

Mother Goose, fairy godmother to all, has ensured the smooth running of Nursery-rhyme Land for years. King Florimund XIV is on the throne, everyone is happy and, most important of all, Humpty Dumpty is still in his egg on top of the palace wall. Until one day, when Humpty has a great fall and all mayhem is unleashed.

Grimm, evil henchman to the wicked Sorcerer Monstro, is sent in search of victims for his master’s “transformation machine” and Florimund’s right-hand men, Powder and Shott, are no match for him. Humpty, lovable, naive and possessed of limited magical powers, unwittingly brings about the collapse of Nursery-rhyme Land and then loses his magic at the crucial moment.

But all is not lost and, although the King’s ward Mary is quite contrary and Little Bo-Peep has other things on her mind, Jack Spratt and his sweetheart Polly Flinders, along with Tommy Tittlemouse and the garrulous palace cook, Dame Dobb, set about helping Humpty to stand up to Monstro, and put all to right. Can Humpty put things together again...?

A TRADITIONAL FAMILY PANTO FOR KIDS AND ALL THOSE WHO REFUSE TO GROW UP!
