Ruyton XI Towns







Ruyton Amateur Theatrical Society

See Page Bottom for 2006 Panto!



WELCOME TO THE HOMEPAGE OF RATS - the amateur theatrical society based in the village of Ruyton XI Towns in North Shropshire.

Founded over 25 years ago, RATS has built a reputation for staging high quality amateur dramatic productions. We perform in a village hall universally agreed to have seen better days, but which has been the venue for some of the funniest and well staged pantomimes that could be seen anywhere.
We work in different genres as well; crime thrillers, classics and melodramas and have also been known to dabble in farce and variety shows.

In recent years we have performed 'in-house' plays, written and directed by two of our own members.

We also have a strong junior representation, ('Young RATS') involved in adult productions as well as their own ventures.

Our latest venture was a Victorian Music Hall evening which we presented to support the work of the village’s Charter Group (see ‘Organisation’) All agreed it was a great success - and the evening raised £3000
