Went to see Sue Perkins in March, mid-week. We had seats on the last row of the Upper Circle - the last two seats that had been available for that night - and had a good view of the stage. There were plenty of staff...More

Excellent viewing from every very comfortable seat- you feel closer to the stage in the circle than in the first 12 rows if any stalls. Tickets are much more reasonsably priced than in Leeds or other York theares. Just a lovely place to be watching...More

This was truly stunning. Gifted, harmonised actor/musicians drew us into their world. I didn't want to leave. Go and see it!

What a lovely little theatre. All staff very friendly and didn't look like there was a bad seat in the house. Decided to stay after a matinee performance for cake and coffee, and the quality and atmosphere in the cafe was excellent. Highly recommend this...More

I have seen 4 previous productions of this moving show and this was the best. Layton Williams who plays Angel is brilliant. The part is always played by a talented actor however the dynamic energy he brings to the role with the subtly of his...More

Such a skilled troupe - all could sing, dance and play at lest one musical instrument. They brought out all the humour, and turned on the pathos of this classic tale of loves and lives lost though timidity. "Roxanne" with a broad, smiley and almost...More
