PB Theatricals Youth Theatre
Ruddigore’s zany plot has it all-ghosts, witches, curses, disguises, and even a wicked villain who tries to make off with the fair maiden. All of the Baronets of the locale of Ruddigore are under a terrible curse enacted by a witch long ago–each of the successive Baronets must commit some kind of a crime every single day, or else they will die in terrible agony. Robin Oakapple has been living as a farmer for years, but he is hiding a secret–he is actually Sir Ruthven, the Baronet of Ruddigore, and has been hiding in disguise while his younger brother Despard assumed the title–and the curse. Robin is discovered and must take on the responsibility of committing a crime every day in order to appease the curse–and the ghosts of all his ancestors past, who are none too happy with his attempt to shirk his title. Robin must somehow find a way to lead the honest life he loves–but how?
About PB Theatricals
PB Theatricals Youth Theatre is a not-for-profit all-inclusive theatre group for young performers aged between 8 and 35. It was formed in 2009 with the aim to specialise in producing quality Gilbert & Sullivan operettas in a concentrated rehearsal period.
PB Theatricals Youth Theatre group, is run by a committee of very committed parents and interested parties who tirelessly fundraise, organise and donate their time, skills and resources to ensure that each year fabulous productions are produced. We are an all-inclusive group within the High Peak where performers audition, rehearse and perform an operetta normally all within a week.
Performers who are interested in taking part in the productions register online as soon as our registration opens and then come to the dedicated audition day. Rehearsals normally start the same day as auditions and performers have the rest of the week to perfect their parts either as a lead role or in the chorus ready for the opening night at the end of the week.
