RUTLAND Arts Theatre Society will perform a brand new show at the Victoria Hall from Wednesday to Saturday next week.

Normanton Hall has been written by award-winning script writer and member Joan Jenkin and is a factional tale based on Rutland’s factual history. It will also feature some well known songs from the 1920s and 1930s. The group, known as RATS, have been appealing through the Rutland Mercury for added props for the garden set.

The comic play is set in the late 1920s/early 1930s in the days before Rutland Water. The days when Normanton Hall still rose grandly from the surrounding farmland.

It follows the adventures, both upstairs and downstairs of the hall’s family and its staff of servants, in a time when society was undergoing radical change.

The doors will be open from 7pm and performances start at 7.30pm. Tickets are £8 from Buy the Book in High Street, Oakham, on 01572 723000, or £10 on the door. For more information contact Jackie Sellwood 01572 723247.
