YMCA Theatre
St. Thomas Street
Scarborough
North Yorkshire
YO11 1DY

Presented by: YMCA Productions

It’s 1959, and Rydell High School’s senior class is in rare form. The too-cool-for-school “Burger Palace Boys” are stealing hub-caps and acting tough and their gum-snapping, chain-smoking “Pink Ladies” are looking hot in bobby sox and pedal pushers. The 1950’s high school dream is about to explode in this rollicking musical that is both a homage to the idealism of the fifties and a satire of high schoolers’ age-old desire to be provocative and rebellious. At the heart of the story is the romance between hot-rodding gangster Danny Zuko and the sweet new girl in town, Sandy Dumbrowski. They had a secret romance in summer, but now back in the context of school, peer-pressure and cliques make their love a bit more complicated. Can Danny maintain his cool dude status and still make demure Sandy his girl? The whole gang sings and dances around Danny and Sandy’s romance, through such hit songs as "Greased Lightnin'", "We Go Together”, and “Mooning”, recalling the music of Buddy Holly, Little Richard and Elvis Presley that became the soundtrack of a generation. Starting off with an eight-year Broadway run, Grease is among the world’s most popular musicals and has a cult-like following, especially among teens!

Xplorer is the perfect outdoor activity for primary and pre-school children and their families.

Xplorer is a family friendly navigation challenge that is educational and fun and gives children a sense of adventure as they explore the park to find the markers. It involves a healthy mix of physical activity and decision making that the whole family can enjoy together.

Using a simple map the aim is to find a number of markers that are located around the park. At each marker children need to identify what is pictured and enjoy learning a fun fact to tell their friends.

Older children will have fun competing against their friends or other family members whilst younger children will enjoy the excitement of successfully finding the markers.

Xplorer is perfect for children as they can have an adventure whilst running around in a safe and friendly environment. No experience of map reading is necessary and parents are encouraged to join in the fun!

Filey Library will host a presentation by Tim Tubbs called “An explosion in Kirk o’ fields-the unsolved murder of Mary Queen of Scot’s first husband Lord Darnley”.

To complement Tim’s talk, books on the tragedy and the period are available to borrow at Filey Library. Alternatively, those interested in the lives of Mary Queen of Scot’s and Lord Darnley, can find out more online using their library card to access the Dictionary of National Biography free on North Yorkshire Libraries website, https://capitadiscovery.co.uk/northyorkshire/.

History most foul is at 6pm on 30th August at Filey Library. Tickets cost £2. To book, contact Filey Library on 01609 536608 or at filey.library@northyorks.gov.uk

We hope to raise as much as possible for them and hope all local Scarborough residents will get involved, come and enjoy the films and give what they can” - Ben Stonehouse, founder of Moonlight Cinema.

About us

Moonlight Drive-in Cinema
Moonlight Drive-in Cinema was setup by a young Yorkshire entrepreneur looking to make a difference in his home town of Scarborough. Now the largest drive-in company in the UK, we have two permanent sites in Kent and Castleford and spend the year touring the UK with our outdoor seated cinemas and pop-up drive-in cinemas. Adding a successful hire department in 2017, Moonlight Cinema cater for a large variety of cinema events.

Saint Catherine’s
Saint Catherine’s provide care and support in people’s homes, the community and in our Hospice for adults with a terminal illness, and to their families, carers and friends. Our doctors, nurses, therapists, counsellors and social workers are here to ensure that life is maximized. They are trained specialists in palliative care who take a unique ‘whole person’ view of every individual, their life and their loved ones and work with them to enhance their health and wellbeing. We can support through symptom management, medication, therapies, personal planning and counselling but, we also take the time to listen or talk and understand that each person makes their own individual journey through life and death. All our services are free of charge. We rely on and are very thankful for the tireless work of our supporters and donors to raise the £5.5m needed to deliver our specialist care.

Scarborough College
We are delighted to be invited to work with Moonlight Cinemas for their annual fundraising event, especially as they are supporting St Catherine's Hospice. A well-known and hugely respected charity within Scarborough. The College and our community do a lot of their own charity fundraising throughout the academic year so being involved in an additional project is great for everyone concerned, enabling us to directly support more of our local community.

Being able to welcome local families to our campus and host the two screenings seemed like an ideal location for everyone involved. We hope that Scarborrians and visitors to the area will join us all and support the two film evenings and help us all to support St Catherine's Hospice. Let's hope the wonderful summer weather holds till the end of the school holidays and both evenings are a huge success.
