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.
