As the Futurist Theatre has been closed for some time we decided to look elsewhere for some entertainment. We're pleased to find the local YMCA theatre were putting on a production of the well known musical Hairspray and duly booked seats. We obviously wondered what standard of performance they would achieve. Well we were not disappointed. They were brilliant from... More

Absolutely amazing quality... it's tucked away on the coast, but punches well above its weight. I'd recommend this to anyone who wants a really great night's entertainment.

Went to see the show Thursday, it was brilliant. Never ceases to amaze me the talent on stage. Brilliant voices from leading singers and Dave Blaker was very commanding actor that brought it all together. Venue small but nice, good atmosphere. Staff friendly and very helpful. Really good night out for £10.

As well as being home to a number of Dance and Performance Schools, we offer meeting rooms, dance studios and a gymnasium for hire. Mini Monkey Gym and FitSteps both run their sessions at Scarborough YMCA. The YMCA also offer Ju Jitsu, Fencing and Musical Theatre classes. A well-equipped 290-seat theatre which plays host to numerous productions each year.

Me and my family saw a fabulous production of West End Nights. There were only four people involved in the music and singing and they were all great. It showcased a lot of talent, confidence and comedy. It was a delightful show to watch and the theatre was clean and comfortable. I would advise people to watch the shows or... More

I've never figured how far YMCA Theatre really registers with Scarborough's visitors and holiday-makers, but I know that if you live here, and have any interest at all in theatre, performing arts, music, dance, fitness or am-dram, it's an important part of your life and a precious asset. Centrally located, charitably-run, affordable to visit, the Leisure Centre offers a wide... More
