The Brunton Panto!

Published: Friday, 12th October 2018


The Brunton is delighted to announce Jack and the Beanstalk, their new pantomime, produced in house and written especially for them by John Binnie.

This award winning and hugely experienced writer and theatre maker makes an exciting addition to the team. John also directs this family friendly, twist on the traditional tale.

Joining the creative team are musical director Tommie Travers, lighting designer Laura Hawkins and East Lothian Council’s Dance Artist Stephanie McAulay, as choreographer. The Brunton is also delighted to announce that the set and costume designer this year is Robin Mitchell with costume making by students studying for their BA (Hons) Costume Design and Construction at Queen Margaret University.

The Brunton is thrilled that Graham Crammond is joining the cast in the role of panto dame, Mither Mandy Moo Moo. Graham was a familiar face in The Brunton panto in the early 2000s and is much loved for his superb comic timing.

Eilidh Weir plays Jill with Ross Donnachie as Jack and Ewan Petrie as Prince Designer Labels. Wendy Seager plays the Giant’s wife and the show stealing Daisy the cow is played by Hayley Keating and Sean O’Brien.

Twenty Four young performers from East Lothian join the professional cast as the very talented chorus.

The Brunton’s brand new production of Jack and the Beanstalk is a festive panto treat full of fun and laughter with oodles of gags, local references, chart hits, outrageous costumes and shouting out! The Brunton delights in producing fun and interactive traditional pantomimes that are suitable for all the family, from ages 4 to 104.

Jack and the Beanstalk runs from Tuesday 27 November until Saturday 5 January. Tickets are available from The Brunton on 0131 665 2240 or online here.
