We all learn from feedback, from our experience, and by learning from others.
That's certainly been the case for us. Looking back over our first couple of years, we've made mistakes. But we have also made progress, and it's probably fair to say that you can't have one without the other.
Now, as we look forward to 2015, it's a chance to put everything we have learned into practice.
There's no doubt that 2014 has been a great success for us: audience feedback has been the best ever, whether we have staged a classic (Agatha Christie's 'The Hollow', for example), or a new and contemporary drama ('The Truth Untold').
Thanks to everyone who has worked on our productions in 2014, and to everyone who has come to see us - especially those who are supporting our new work.
Our promise is to keep improving, year on year. We've got a great line up for 2015 ... and no shortage of innovation, but before we cross into the new year, we've got a couple more treats in store: the final night of the wonderful new musical, Star Prize, is on at Shanklin Theatre on Wednesday, October 15; and we are launching pub theatre at the Bargeman's Rest in Newport on Thursday, October 30, with a haunting stage adaptation of the Dickens short story, The Signalman.
Stay with us!
