Commenting on the gig on the Scarborough News Facebook page, Keely Duncan-Fewster said: “We had a fab night tonight.

“We were singing and dancing all the way through. Only 1,300 there which was disappointing but still a good night.”

Later this month, the theatre hosts shows by Michael Ball and Alfie Boe, on June 28, and Cliff Richard on June 29.
