The team at Scarborough Spa and Tony Peers Productions are celebrating a successful summer season, which has seen audience numbers greatly increase from previous years.
Combined ticket sales for The Best of Thoroughly Modern Musicals and The Billy Pearce Laughter Show were up by a massive 62% against the previous year.
The big crowd pleaser for this year was Yorkshire’s comedy hero Billy Pearce. As a new twist to this year’s programming, Billy delivered a high-energy, all singing and dancing show night after night. Together with his talented cast there was not one night that did not disappoint, with countless comments from the audience asking for him to come back next year.
These audience members will not be disappointed, as it has now been revealed that Billy Pearce will be making a welcome return to The Spa for the 2016 summer season!
Tony Peers Productions will also be bringing a brand new show which combines the very best of musical numbers with fabulous songs from the movies. With two extremely exciting shows in the making, 2016 is sure to be bigger and better! Full details and on sale dates are due to be announced.
Tony Peers said “We have built the success of our shows on team work and this year has been no exception, starting with the front of house and marketing teams from The Spa, creative input from director Linda Newport, choreographer Kim Oakley and of course our wonderful cast, Matt Dallen, Stuart Metcalfe, Ellie Carroll and Rosanne Priest. Not forgetting the icing on this year’s cake - Yorkshires own king of comedy Billy Pearce! They have all combined to produce our most successful shows to date.
“The final thank you must go to the people we do it for, our audiences. We look forward to seeing you all again next year with two brand new shows.”
Jo Ager, General Manager of Scarborough Spa, said “Well what a season! Thanks to the hard work from the team at The Spa, Tony Peers Productions and the cast we are celebrating a great season. I am delighted that we will once again be working with Tony Peers and his team in 2016 and as Tony mentioned Yorkshire’s own king of comedy Mr Billy Pearce.”
