Theatres in Scarborough...

The Stephen Joseph Theatre moved to its present home in the 1990's. The original theatre was founded in 1955 by Stephen Joseph who created a 'theatre-in-the-round' at the library. In 1976 the theatre moved to a tempory home on the ground floor of the former Scarborough Boys High School. It wasn't until 1988 when the Odean Cinema closed that a suitable location was found.


The new theatre has 2 auditoria. The 'Round' has 404 seats and continues the 'theatre-in-the-round' tradition. The McCarthy is a 165 end stage/ cinema. Internationally acclaimed playright Sir Alan Ayckbourn premiers his latest plays here, attracting visitors from all over the UK and beyond. more
