We are incredibly proud of our Edinburgh Youth Theatre children who took part in our annual Portobello Panto which was a great success, enjoyed by performers and audiences alike. 

Our very own Shauna Macdonald directed the show and nearly 50 EYT performers took part along with our friends from Lothian Dance School. A big thank you to Bellfield and Action Porty for their hard work in making it all come together so beautifully.

Shauna said:

The Panto was a huge success and I am very proud of everyone that took part. At EYT we believe that top quality theatre needn’t be restricted to high priced productions in the centre of town and should be accessible to all.


We were so excited that we could offer the free relaxed and BSL signed performance on the Sunday morning.


The adult cast were outstanding, but EYT were the real stars of the show. 48 children in total sang, danced and acted their socks off to a highly impressed and overjoyed audience. Go Team Snow!!! Go EYT!!!!!  

We were delighted to receive this wonderful review from Deadline News, who are so kind with their generous and enthusiastic review.

A magical performance of a classic panto, reworked and relevant for a young vibrant cast and audience. Catch a ballsy Snow White, and a cast skilled in comedic delivery at Bellfield Church, Portobello.

You can read the whole story on their website. (opens in a new tab)

Now we can all relax and enjoy the holidays and start to plan for the Porty Panto 2019 in the new year.

Merry Christmas from the team at EYT!
