R.A.T.S.
Rushden Amateur Theatrical Society


For the first 29 years that the R.A.T.S. was in existence (with the exception of 1967, 1969 and 1985) only one show was run each year - a pantomime in the winter. However, in most years since 1992, a summer play has also been performed, which, for the most part, have been comedies.
