Amazing Musicals in York

We are a friendly, hard working musical theatre company based in the New Earswick Folk Hall, York, where we have been since our founding in 1914. Read our Blog page for all the latest news on what we are up to.

We perform two productions each year at the Joseph Rowntree Theatre, one in the Spring, the other in the Autumn. Our next show, 9 – 12 November will be Fiddler on the Roof.


Our Autumn 2016 show –
Fiddler on the Roof

The 1964 Tony Award-winner for Best Musical based on the stories about Tevye the Dairyman by Sholem Aleichem.

Story: When Tevye’s eldest daughter, Tzeitel, begs him to let her marry a poor tailor rather than the middle-aged butcher that he has already chosen for her, Tevye must choose between his own daughter’s happiness and those beloved traditions that keep the outside world at bay. Meanwhile, there are other forces at work in Anatevka, dangerous forces which threaten to destroy the very life he is trying to preserve.

York Press Review: Sunset Boulevard, New Earswick Musicals, Joseph Rowntree Theatre, York, until Saturday

By ROBERT MCKELVEY, York Press

New Earswick Musicals have assembled quite a show in their staging of Sunset Boulevard. It’s moving, dark and, for the most part, very well put together indeed. Read more

    Hello, my name is Nigel Ross. I was looking through some old photos, and found a couple taken during my time with NEADOS (as it was then). I was a member from Gigi to Hans Anderson, and spent much of that time on the committee. I have many happy memories of this time, and I am pleased that you still thrive. You may be interested to know that the high spot of my time on the committee was persuading Mavis Massheder that it would be a good idea to enter the York Raft Race. The society entered a raft for three years running (Annie to the Sound of Music) and in the first year won a trophy for the most sponsorship. My lasting memory is the final year when one of the members, Major Dave Hargreaves, arrived at our “boatyard” – Derek London’s shop – with an army 7 ton truck and 6 squaddies to transport the completed raft to the start. It was a very wet Summer, and the finish at Bishopthorpe Yacht Club was a quagmire. No problem, Major Dave got on the phone, and 2 army tracked recovery vehicles arrived to get the rafts out of the water!!!! Also at that time several of the members were also connected with Sheriff Hutton Bridge Cricket Club, and the society actually played a number of cricket matches at their ground (yes we could raise 11 able bodied male members, and actually boasted 3 qualified umpires in our ranks). Again many happy times. Break a leg.

    Kind regards
    Nigel Ross
