“RODS” was formed in 1949 and our aim is to promote the performance of live theatre in the Rayleigh Area.

Our productions range from Wilde and Ibsen to Rogers & Hammerstein through to Pantomime.
We have a wide age range and a try where possible to promote the involvement of all ages.

We are a friendly and diverse group who are always pleased to welcome new members
who wish to participate onstage, backstage, directing or in any administrative role.

In May 2023 we returned to the Mill Arts & Events Centre to stage Sheer Luck Holmes.
This was a succesful production, and working with Rochford Leisure, normal service will be resumed going forward.
