Went to see The Carpenters and reply enjoyed it,all the shows we have seen there are excellent. Well worth keeping an eye on forthcoming events.
Due to the fact my daughter bought the tickets from a friend who had to go into hospital at short notice, she was unaware that seats booked were on the balcony.
My wife who at present is in a wheelchair was unable to get to the seats as there were 20 steps reach the Balcony and unfortunately no lift.
The staff at the theatre who are all volunteers went above and beyond to get us seated downstairs and may sure we were OK right throughout the show.
Thanks very much to all concerned you may our visit a pleasure.

Saw Best of the West End on Thursday, 23rd June. As always a first rate production, full of energy and enthusiasm. We always visit the summer show when on the Island and recommend it to other holidaymakers. The dancing has improved greatly over recent years and the singing is excellent. Long may the company and volunteers at the Shanklin Theatre continue to entertain us

Optional Organised trip by Alfa Travel while on holiday in Shanklin. What a lovely theatre. Comfy seats with plenty of leg room. We saw the production Beyond the West End featuring songs and dances from various musical. A really enjoyable evening of great entertainment.

Friendly, staff, 2nd show we have seen here, both were excellent. Tonight was Beyond the West End and we came out feeling thoroughly entertained. Not the usual show songs but a great mix of music, humour and dance. As we left all I could hear was praise for the performance. Well done.

This was musical theatre at it's best! A beautiful building and wonderful performers. 'Beyond The West End' was so engaging and the players and band were outstanding. Can't recommend this show highly enough - if you're having a cheeky break on the island, try and keep the Thursday evening free and book for this weekly show - an absolute treat. Hey, and we're not really theatre go-ers! Such a nice addition to our short break on IOW.
