You can call this biased as I had a daughter in the cast. But I thought the Panto at YMCA was very good indeed. Not your normal run of the mill Panto it went places out of this galaxy and beyond. It used film, a chase scene, which was very funny. Singing was in key,harmony's worked. Everyone knew there lines... More

The energy and effort put into the many productions seen here is fantastic and I would recommend any visitor to Scarborough in the Summer, or at Easter / Christmas to check out their latest production. You wont be disappointed and it is the cheapest theatre in the town so it is also good to your wallet

We visited the theatre to enjoy music from the West End musicals. Although there were only about 70 people in the audience the four singers managed well to entertain us & had us joining in

Last minute decision and really pleasantly surprised. Little lady who sang her heart out as Audrey and stole the show was amazing! Didn't get a programme as was late unfortunately so don't know her name. Very good production but PA needs a little attention as sound quality was a little ropey. Truly enjoyed it

Find the production by googling what's on in Scarborough - staying at Filey for the family seaside holiday. The weather has been rubbish - saw this was playing, knew little about the venue or company - and went on a wet Monday night. Well - if you can't get sunshine in the day - you can get bright lights and... More

The YMCA Theatre in Scarborough is a pure delight. The shows that are put on at this venue by the local (very talented!) kids, and young adults is in our opinion, one of the main attractions to be found in Scarborough. Many house hold names began their career at this theatre, and the enthusiasm of those who take to the... More
