Are you interested in any aspect of amateur dramatics? Have you been looking to join the R.A.T.S. but have not been sure how to go about it?

On the first Thursday of every month, we meet informally at 7:30pm in The Oak Room at the Rushden Rangers Football Club on Hayden Road (click here for location). Existing and potential new members are all welcome, so this is an ideal opportunity to come and meet members of the society, outside of an audition or rehearsal environment, and find out what we do.

Rushden Amateur Theatrical Society 2013


The R.A.T.S. has been providing live theatre to Rushden in Northamptonshire for the last 50 years and more. 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 12 upwards are always welcome.
