Stephen Joseph Theatre Or Sjt - Review

Radiating an old world charm, the SJT was the first ‘in the round’ theatre in Britain. Today the theatre attracts audiences from around the globe. With a seating arrangement that’s so close around the stage, you’re practically a part of the play! Don’t be surprised to find people in the first row occasionally moving their feet to make way for the actors. That’s how close you are!

SJT comprises of 2 halls – The Round with 404 seats in a round seating space and The McCarthy, a 165 seat cinema – and hosts 2 to 3 shows daily. The theatre is known to have premiered nearly all of playwright and director Alan Ayckbourn’s plays. Some marked favourites by Ayckbourn regularly appearing on the SJT stage are ‘Time of My Life’, “Life and Beth’ and ‘Arrivals and Departures’.

Andrew Martin’s ‘The Last Train to Scarborough’ is much cherished by SJT audiences for its exceptionally engaging cast and gripping plot. ‘Taste of Honey’ too attracts theatre enthusiasts from far and wide. The theatre is committed to encouraging works by newer writers as well. Numerous workshops and classes are conducted for the community and small projects are also undertaken by SJT.

No matter what the play, visitors come out praising the quality performances at SJT. It is not uncommon for audiences to designate the vitality of the SJT stage a higher place than the productions at West End!

  • This intimate and cozy theatre boasts of a fine bar and restaurant as well.
  • A small gallery exhibits the works of local and national artists and is free for the visitors.
  • The theatre shop is one of the largest sellers of play scripts in Yorkshire and stocks every published play of Alan Ayckbourn.
  • Backstage tours and post-performance interactions with the cast are also offered.

An evening spent at the SJT will leave you envying the fine people of Scarborough.

Stephen Joseph Theatre Or Sjt, Scarborough Reviews

  • We went to see the 39 steps, which was hilarious and slick in the performances of 4 very versatile and funny actors. We have not been to such a good adult play in along time, but we now have the taste for more and will definitely be more frequent visitors. I was surprised that not all the seats were filled. The Theatre has benefitted from the refurbishment.

  • Wasn't sure what to expect but the acting and comedy from the 39 steps was amazing we laughed from start to finish the actors improvisation throughout the play was amazing well done you all. Thank you for making us laugh so much it made a special evening alot more fun. XX

  • Great place as always but especially tonight because it was the first night of an Aykbourn revival. It's a theatre that deserves, & gets, support. The message of tonight's play? Do yourself a favour & don't live next door to perfect people!

  • Sjt theatre is first class for a wide variety of entertainment. I love the local talent in the form of Rounders youth theatre as well as 1st class touring theatres like Broadside. Always something to see

  • Fine art Deco building, repurposed as theatre in the round plus cinema. The theatre is excellent and allows real involvement in the plot of the many fine plays staged there, including Ayckbourn's.
