Stephen Joseph Theatre - Summer Season 2018

Scarborough's iconic Stephen Joseph Theatre has announced it's new season of plays and film.

This beautiful Art Deco building, which once housed Scarborough iconic Odeon Cinema, is just opposite Scarborough Railway Station, so it's quite close to the Red Lea Hotel.

These include The 39 Steps (from 21st June); Joking Apart (from 26th July); Build a Rocket (from 31st August) and Better Off Dead (from 6th September).

The foyer area of the theatre underwent a refurbishment earlier this year and now looks fantastic. 

There is also Shop at the SJT - a wonderful collection of artisan creations - which is open on performance days.
