The Society is privileged to perform in the Georgian Theatre Royal for three major productions a year, and is committed to providing entertainment of the highest possible standard.
The main thrust of the Society and its members is to put on plays! We try to vary our programme as much as possible, to encompass all strands of drama. We are always willing to try ambitious projects.
RADS is a registered charity, and each year makes donations to charities proposed by the membership.
Our members turn out in all weathers to rehearse, build sets, make costumes - and coffee - and props, so that when a production goes to the Theatre, it is as polished as we can make it.
We welcome new talent - no experience is necessary, and support and opportunities to develop will be given.
We own our own property at 6-8 Castle Hill, and this building provides the perfect rehearsal space, as well as storage rooms for our sets, properties and costumes.
It is also ideal for workshops, after-show suppers and our regular fun social evenings.
On the second Monday of each month (except August) we hold a ‘social evening’. These vary in content from month to month, but are usually fun and give members the chance to chat and ‘catch up’ - not always possible during rehearsals!

THE SMASH HIT COMEDY WHERE ONLY THE AUDIENCE KNOWS ALL THE RULES...
Everyone creates their own coping strategies or rules for living. But what happens when an extended family gathers in the kitchen for a traditional Christmas and they each follow those rules, rigidly?
As long-held mechanisms for survival are laid bare, even Mum, who’s been preparing this lunch since last January, becomes embroiled. Time-honoured rivalries and resentments will out. Accusations fly, relationships deconstruct, the rules take over.
In Sam Holcroft’s theatrically playful, dark comedy the instructions are there for all to see, audience included - so there’s really no place to hide.
Presented by Richmond Amateur Dramatic Society by special arrangement with Nick Hern Books.
