Very impressed by the Theatre run by volunteers who made everyone welcome. Reasonable prices for the show and the bar. We were on holiday in nearby Sandown, I'd looked on the internet prior to our break as to what shows were on. We went to see a Beatles tribute which was excellent.

This was the one of the best shows I have seen for many a long time. I went with 2 teenagers who thought it would be boring. Far from it. They laughed and clapped and sang along with the rest of us and loved every minute. Well done to all the hard working cast. Lovely theatre . Wish we lived... More

What an excellent night of entertainment, it had everything, superb singing, comedy, live music from the 4 guys in the band. Too many highlights to single out as all were performed top notch and all within a truly lovely Theatre. The visit was also made enjoyable from the enthusiastic staff who are so courteous and can't do enough to make... More

Saw the Best of The West End and it really was a showstopper! The group of 8 were a powerhouse and had us in the palms of their hands. You could have heard a pin drop during "Bring Him Home", and you could have heard us in Cowes with the cockney sing-a-long. A great selection form the old musicals Top... More
