This was the second production that we have seen at the YMCA Theatre and they have both been fantastic. The work that these young people put in is extraordinary. Brilliant, loved every minute. If you're looking for something to do in the evening while in Scarborough then look no further.

What a nice little theatre. Much better than the name or outside suggests. We saw rock of ages which we very much enjoyed. Not the west end, but very good.

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
