RATz, the theatre’s in-house amateur drama group, will perform The 39 Steps on Thursday, Friday and Saturday evening, 7.30pm start.

Four actors will play a remarkable 139 roles in 100 minutes of fast-paced fun and thrilling action.

The group’s interpretation of the Olivier Award winning play follows the adventures of a handsome hero, a stiff-upper-lip, gung-ho character who encounters dastardly murders, double-crossing secret agents and beautiful women.

The production is directed by Adam Billett, who is studying for a Masters Degree in Drama at Leicester University.
