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 Heritage Chapel and Halls, 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.

Our next production is

A Fairy Tale Adventure

by Sophia Holder

Audition details are as follows

This is our winter performance this year. It's an unusual take on your favourite traditional pantos, with many recognisable characters all in one play!! We are welcoming everyone to come along and join us on the 17th and/or the 19th of September for reads through. Dates for auditions to be confirmed after read throughs are completed. Hope you can join us! Synopsis below!
