75th Anniversary

We celebrated the Theatre's 75th Anniversary in 2010. There were be a number of events over the year as part of the celebrations including themed Music Nights covering music of the last 75 years and a Celebration Ball in July.

Information about the original opening of the theatre and the 50th anniversary can also be found in this section, as well as list of all the shows.

In January 2011 the Your Local Link Magazine published 2 articles about the theatre and it's 75th Anniversary, profiling 2 of the people who have been involved in the running of the theatre over the past few years — Peter Jackson was one of the Stage Managers, and Brenda Batty is one of the Management Board.

Additionally in December 2010, The York Press published an article celebrating the anniversary of the theatre.
