What’s ON AT the Theatre
Fancy a night out at the Theatre whilst on your holiday? We have detailed the local theatres.
Stephen Joseph Theatre, Scarborough
The Stephen Joseph Theatre is actually two theatres – The Round (404 seats completely surrounding a central stage) and The McCarthy (165 seats in a steep bank facing an end stage). There is also an excellent restaurant, bar and wine bar, meeting room and bookshop in the complex which was converted from an art deco cinema in 1996. Sir Alan Ayckbourn is the artistic director and his own plays are premiered here. The theatre also has a national reputation for its work in presenting new works by others.
Spa Theatre, Scarborough
Spa Theatre, a 600-seater Victorian Theatre is home to the second-longest running Summer Season show in the country.
Kirk Theatre, Pickering
Pickering very own local theatre. A great entertainment venue and not to be missed.
A small sample of the many events planned for 2020 in and around Pickering. We have picked out the best locally and the bigger events further afield. North Yorkshire is still a very agricultural county and stages many local shows in the Summer. These shows give a real local flavour and can be a really good fun family day out.
