Join the Love Train in Scarborough
Today a group of young people on the National Citizenship programme supported by Stephen Joseph Theatre OutReach will take over an empty shop in Scarborough.
The premises, formally Jones Hairdressers on Northway, will be decorated in a 1970s theme.
Reaching out to the younger generation, the group wish to gather opinions on the Stephen Joseph Theatre. Inside the shop will be questionnaires, a chance to record opinions on video and a pop art wall on which young people can write their thoughts.
There will also be 1970s games (including giant Twister) and sweets for participants.
The cast of Soul Man, Chris Monks’ new musical currently playing at the SJT, will also make a guest appearance to perform songs from the show.
Dressed in 1970s clothing (and jelly baby costumes), the group aim to create the longest love train possible. Starting at the Stephen Joseph Theatre at 12 noon, they will be parading through the town to the song Love Train by the O’Jays and welcome any volunteers who would like to join in the fun.
