Don't miss our next production - a tribute to one of the Isle of Wight's most famous sons ... staged in the theatre named after him, at QUAY ARTS, NEWPORT - two performances only: FEBRUARY 24 and 25.


'Whale Music' is a funny, thoughtful, and moving portrayal of the lives of a group of women. Caroline comes back to the Isle of Wight to have a baby, and is soon surrounded by her friends. But times have changed. How will they react to her, and each other?

The play was Anthony Minghella's first big success and we are delighted to bring it back to the stage in his beloved Isle of Wight, and to add our own touches ...

Our production features music and images created by Island video artist, short film and music maker, Paul Windridge.  Find out more about Paul and his work here

Here comes Summer!

Audiences at Shanklin Theatre loved our production of 39 Steps, based on the Hitchcock film of the same name, in August last year.

A few examples of the feedback we received:  'Better than the London West End' .... 'Absolutely brilliant' .... 'Enjoyed it tremendously' ... 'Highest quality production'

And the good news is ... we're back again this Summer! This time with a furiously fast and funny farce. Look out!
