Welcome

The R.A.T.S. has been providing live theatre to the town of Rushden in Northamptonshire for more than 50 years. We perform regularly at the Pemberton Centre in the town, with a pantomime every January, and most summers we perform a play, which is usually a comedy. New members from the age of 5 upwards are always welcome.

The villagers in Much Grumblin’ are not happy. With a big hairy giant taxing them into poverty and an evil witch collecting it, they’re all at their wits end.*

Poor old Dame Churn is particularly hard hit. After the death of her husband, the Squire, she is now forced to eek out a living running the dairy. Only having Buttercup the cow makes this a little difficult though, and having a useless layabout son called Jack and a failed inventor daughter called Simone, makes things harder still!

Things come to a head when they are forced to sell Buttercup to prevent being evicted. Jack gets tricked into accepting beans for her and, well you know what happens next! With a show jam packed with songs, jokes and general lunacy, we’re sure you’ll want to see it again and again.

*any resemblance to events or persons living or dead is purely coincidental.
