Went to see magic of Motown recently and it was amazing. Show was fabulous and very enjoyable. Staff at the theatre were lovely and will def book another show here.
In the last 2 years the theatre has increasingly offered an extremely varied range of productions for which the web site offers easy access for viewing the programme and then booking the tickets. This theatre has been brought into the 21st century by a group of very keen voluntary supporters.

I came to see the Dreamboys with my daughter and we were amazed just how friendly and helpful the staff were. The theatre has an amazing atmosphere and the seats we had were brilliant. Unfortunately we had a little bit of trouble the evening we attended with some drunk women who were abusive and physically annoying but the security and... More
My second trip to Shanklin Theatre - 1st time to see Accoustic Strawbs and this time Bill Wyman's Rhythm Kings. The place was jam packed with lots of like-minded old rockers.

With such a mix of acts, local, National and International I have forced myself to get off my backside and go. Last week I had the... More
This is a very grand looking theatre, situated in the centre of Shanklin. We aren't sure if there was parking available on site, but the theatre is a 5 minute walk from a council-owned car park. This car park does charge during the day but, as we arrived after hours, the car park was free. The staff in the theatre... More

Bought tickets for the last show of Hello Dolly. Ordering over the internet was easy and our tickets were available for collection as arranged. Had a drink in the bar before the performance. The theatre is great and I am glad that we chose to support it on our holiday. These smaller venues make the shows a more intimate affair.... More
If you want a piece of nostalgia then this is the place.When local theatres are closing this is a little gem and a must visit.
