Information For Schools

We want to bring the magic of live performance to as many of Rugby’s young people as we can. That’s why a third of our tickets are available for free to local school groups. This has been made possible thanks to the generous support of CEMEX.

If you are a teacher who is interested in bringing a group to one of our events or would like to find out more about the opportunity, please contact Dettie (Theatre Manager) on dettie@macreadytheatre.co.uk or by calling 01788 556203. We would love to hear from you.
