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

Went to see Grease on the last night, what a brilliant production, the cast exuded vitality, enthusiasm and talent. The production was slick, scenery cleverly moved around the stage and the lighting enhanced each scene. I thought the youngsters involved were clearly enjoying every moment of the production as were the audience who gave them a standing ovation at the... More

Went to see Grease performed by local young people. The YM is a cosy intimate theatre run with a lot of volunteer help. I am always lifted when I go by the talent, effort and sheer exuberance.

Didn't know what to expect with it being a YMCA amateur production but we were pleasantly surprised. The cast of youngsters performed their hearts out, sure some of the singing & acting was at times dubious but they made up for it with their enthusiasm. Performance of the night was Rizzo's "There Are Worse Things I Can Do" The cast... More

Went to see this performance and had to leave halfway through. I know they were kids on stage but the acting was horrendous. The songs were ok in parts but mostly out of time and tune. The only half decent performance was from rizzo, but even she could have done more with the role. There was little energy and sandy... More
