Theatre Preview: Sinbad the Pantomime, 20 November – 2 January, Brunton Theatre, Musselburgh

11 Nov

Update: read my review of Sinbad and the Little Mermaid

A brand new pantomime written to celebrate Brunton Theatre’s 30th anniversary of professional productions begins on Friday 20 November and runs until Saturday 2 January: Sinbad the Pantomime featuring The Little Mermaid.

Deep beneath the Bass Rock lies the secret undersea paradise Atlantis – home to the Little Mermaid and the Pearl of Beauty, a jewel with magical properties.

When the evil witch Crabsclaw attacks the peace-loving Merfolk of Atlantis in search of the Pearl, the Little Mermaid is forced to swim ashore for help. Washed up on Fisherrow Beach she is discovered by Sinbad the Sailor, who lives on a ship in Fisherrow Harbour with his mammy Saucy Nancy and daft brother Swishee.

Together they set off on a quest to find the great Neptune, Lord of the Seas and the only being powerful enough to defeat the Sea Witch.

Sinbad the Pantomime follows on from its very successful productions of Dick McWhittington, Cinderella and Sleeping Beauty, also written and directed by Liam Rudden and produced by Brunton Theatre.

Tickets are available now from the Box Office on 0131 665 2240 or online at
