What’s On – Rugby Theatre On Air
Our RT On-Air audio plays showcase the funny, the sad, the challenging and exhilarating aspects of life! Listen now to our growing collection of radio plays.
Youth Project 2023
Every year we run the Summer Youth Project. Guided by a dedicated team and a professional director, up to 100 young people create and perform a high quality show in just two weeks. Children aged 10 - 20 years play major roles and provide support backstage. So if acting is not your forte you can still take part. The Summer Youth Project is two weeks, full time.
