We have now made several visits to the WYP, (most recently for White Christmas and Uncle Vanya), and have come to appreciate how accessible the theatre is and how much community related work is done. There is considerable variety in the current programme of productions and this will ensure we return several more times this year. Good points: + Very... More

We saw a great production of Uncle Vanya last night at the West Yorkshire Playhouse - great acting and of course it's a brilliant play.

We arrived early to the playhouse to have lunch but I was a bit disappointed with the quality of food and the queue to pay for it, I don't expect value for money at these places but the prices were'nt too bad, but you will need £20 for a bite to eat and few drinks for two of you. However... More

Just got back from the West Yorkshire Playhouse after seeing White Christmas. Fantastic. Darren Day was brilliant as was Oliver Tompsett. The whole cast were slick and polished and the set was great especially the tap dancing men on the piano keyboard staircase. I was very impressed with the whole experience and will certainly be making the trip from Bury... More

The larger 'Quarry Theatre' is particularly good as you see from any seat without pillars blocking your view which you find in many older theatres. Acoustically excellent too with a very large stage which is used to very good advantage in a wide range of productions. Just seen White Christmas there, which was excellent and a really good feel food... More

This is a lovely auditorium. We went to see White Christmas, which is a wonderful show. We sat on the front row which made us feel part of the show! No matter where you sit in this theatre the views of the stage are excellent, nothing to obstruct the views! The bar area is spacious with plenty of seating and... More

What a lovely intimate theatre - we were sitting on row F and felt as though we were part of the show = although excellent views from everywhere. White Christmas was a brilliant show and we enjoyed every part of it. - the songs and the dancing were all amazing and made me rush home to re-watch the original film.... More
