Theatre in the Round: Key Figures

Since theatre in the round was established in Scarborough in 1955, hundreds of people have worked with the company from directors to actors, backstage to front of house. It would be impossible to compile a complete list of everyone who has ever worked with the company.

What this section provides is a guide to some of the significant people who have worked in theatre in the round in Scarborough between 1955 and 2009, when Alan Ayckbourn stepped down as Artistic Director. It is not a comprehensive nor complete list - and is subjective to a degree - but it does shine a light on some of the many talented people who have worked in Scarborough over the decades.

There is also material resorting to the significance of the amateur community in the formative years of theatre in the round in Scarborough and how it played an integral part in Stephen Joseph's plans for a community theatre. Click on a link below to go to the relevant page.
