Rah Rah Theatre Company was set up by Jude Spooner and Gemma Beagley in 2001. Our aim is to take theatre into the community that makes an impact, having a particular focus on using Theatre for Social Change so as to raise awareness and using theatre as a form of therapy. We specialise in physical theatre, audience interaction and using drama therapy techniques.
This year’s shows in 2019 are as follows:
Our productions are brought directly into Theatres, Schools, Care Centres, Community spaces, and Outdoor Events and can be adapted to be performed in any size area for any size of audience. On average, Rah Rah performs over 250 shows a year. We also provide a number of different drama-based workshops for both young and old.
So far, Rah Rah Theatre Company has taken fifty productions and five workshops on tour. The company has been commissioned by over 5 different councils to write and produce shows within their respective boroughs. Rah Rah has also worked for a number of different companies and charities, including: the Imperial War Museum, The National Trust, The Rose Theatre, Trinity Theatre, Dundee Rep, Aberdeen Arts Centre, Halifax Playhouse, CAST Doncaster, Colour House Children’s Theatre, Age UK, Age Concern, BUPA, Sunrise and Senior Living, Salvation Army and Hope For Justice. We have also gained charity status in 2017 to continue our work on raising awareness of human trafficking through our play, “My Mind is Free”.
