This was our third time attending Shanklin Theatre to see T.Rextasy, who no one will be in the slightest bit surprised to hear, perform the music of Marc Bolan. The band is always good value entertainment, but last night's show was the best we've seen them do, including a stunning acoustic version of Cosmic Dancer, and a storming Get It... More

It was over two hours of none stop music and dance with great singers and dancing. It covered everything from oklahoma to Frozen. Thoroughly... More

The performance was 1st class. For a small provincial theatre all the cast were excellent. They were a company of ten, plus a four piece band. The costumes and routines were wonderful, I couldn't believe the quality of the singing and dancing. Even the humorous routines were spot on. They were so good that the audience actually cheered throughout! I... More

This is a small local theatre and for what it is and the price it is really good. Seating g is a bit uncomfortable. We have been to a number of shows here and they have all been worth seeing

Saw Paul Carack at this theatre last night but have been to many events there. It is a delightful little theatre which we nearly lost but thanks to many dedicated volunteers it keeps coming up trumps! The seats are really comfortable with plenty of leg room and you always get a good view of the stage. I have been to... More

When we booked for the show we imagined it to be a typical 'end of the pier' production. How wrong could anyone be! It was fabulous, the best show we have seen in ages, fast moving, hilariously funny in parts and best of all, there was audience participation which made it all the more enjoyable. The team of ten were... More

We have just returned from seeing Paul Carack play at this little gem of a theatre. We have seen him all over the country and couldn't believe our luck when he appeared on list of performers at this small local venue. The seating is well laid out and really comfortable. The volunteers are amazing and offer a really friendly and... More
