A great little theatre with a good variety of show types. The musicals are especially good. I've been to many performances from The History Boys, Of mice and Men, Showboat . The latest one was Annie Get Your Gun.

I saw Show Boat last year and it was fantastic. The seating allows everyone to enjoy the show and the performance thats put on is as good as Broadway I know I've be to a show on Broadway Chicago Go to a show and enjoy the feeling of being part of the show at the Crucible

One of the best theatres to get close to action. The crucible shape enables you to look down on the stage providing an intimacy I not seen before. Go if you get the chance to see something good and you not regret it.

The Crucible has been open some time now and has created for itself a reputation as a theatre with a wide range of theatrical performances . Their Christmas musical performances are a legend and they have often given good career opportunities to both actors and directors. The theatre is based on classical Greece - with the audience on three sides.... More

We think that this venue is worth travelling 200 miles in a day to see. The Crucible has done it again! Well done. “Everybody’s Talking About Jamie”, closed on Saturday, so if you haven't seen it, you missed it. Thanks to it being mentioned on BBC Radio 2 we obtained last minute tickets. It was an up beat, feel good... More

I feel very sorry for people who missed "JAMIE" Because everybody is talking about Jamie.Well everybody in Sheffield. We went to see it twice........The very talented lad who played "JAMIE" must be in line for a theatre award, John McRae is simply wonderful, as the last nights audience would testify. It is the first time I have been in the... More

Loved every minute of this show and feel honoured to have witnessed such great performances from all the cast. I danced, cried laughed and left the crucible with a signed CD and a smile on my face. Booked late so not the best seats but due to the nature of the stage all seats have an advantage. This play is... More

Top Notch show. Should be moved to Westend. Music is fantastic not your typical musical format of band songs and a couple of good ones this one you want to buy the cd. All the cast were superb - the dancing was great and I laughed throughout the whole show. Its only on until the 25th - go and see... More
