The Isle of Wight has an active and innovative drama scene, with a number of highly experienced and enthusiastic actors performing at theatres across the Island.
Medina Theatre lies at the heart of the Island in Newport and presents a range of shows including touring opera productions, comedians, local orchestral groups and productions for children.
Shanklin Theatre is a traditional, characterful theatre which was constructed in the late 1800s.
The theatre puts on regular productions from local theatre groups and touring shows by well-loved comedians, musical acts and dancers.
The Quay Arts in Newport is home to the Minghella Theatre, named after one of the Island’s finest exports, Oscar-winning film director, Anthony Minghella.
The theatre hosts a wide range of shows and events, from talks and local stage productions to comedians and musicians.
As well as using our traditional theatres, many actors and musicians host events in quirky venues including converted banks and post offices and historic buildings.
