The Apollo Theatre is a member of the Little Theatre Guild of Great Britain (LTG). The little Georgian building is a former Methodist chapel in Pyle Street, Newport, Isle of Wight, which was bought in 1970 and converted by a team of dedicated volunteers. Every year the Apollo Players put on a main season of seven shows; in addition, there is a regular programme of jazz concerts and the theatre can be hired for other events. We are continually investing in the building and its facilities, and have state-of-the-art lighting and sound and a small but comfortable auditorium (with seats originally saved from Shanklin cinema!). The auditorium is wheelchair-accessible, with spaces for wheelchair users and an accessible loo close by, and there is a loop system for hearing-aid users. The well-stocked bar offers special themed cocktails and a new exhibition of local artists for each production in ‘Art in the Bar’.
