Counting down ...

Our next production Warzone starts with a countdown ... a bit like the launch of a rocket to the moon; or the wait for the order to go over the top ...

And it is exciting to think that we are now in the countdown period to opening night of April 29 at Shanklin Theatre!  There may only be two performances (April 29 and 30), but the same amount of preparation goes into it, and it is one of the most exciting parts of being involved in theatre.

You see the cast developing the characters more and more with each rehearsal; the confidence building; the bits that don't work being ironed out (or scrapped completely!); the list of things to do that never seems to get any shorter ...

Warzone is the second new play of our First World War centenary tribute, and the fact that the cast is made up of Isle of Wight students telling a story that honours the lives of the many young people who gave so much during the 'Great War' makes it even more special.

As the countdown continues, we hope this production maintains our high standards, but also stands as a fitting tribute, because there is no doubt that 'we will remember them' ...
