THE WELKIN

Set in March 1759, somewhere on the border of Norfolk and Suffolk, The Welkin tells the story of Sally Poppy, a young woman arrested for a particularly brutal child murder. She did not, however, act alone. Her male lover, who was also involved in the killing, is immediately tried and hanged: 18th-century justice was quick and brutal.

Show Dates: 3rd, 4th, 5th October 2024

School of Rock!

We’re so excited to announce that we’ll be warming up our vocal chords, tuning our guitars and turning the volume up to 11 in order to rock out for our January 2025 production with “School of Rock”, the musical based on the hit movie with Abby Dearing making her RP directorial debut.

Abby, a member of the Society for several years, will also choreograph the kids alongside Leah Renyard (who will take on the role of Assistant Director), with Jade Kempster as Adult Choreographer. James & Sally Vigurs return as Co-Musical Directors having previously MD’d our 2023 pantomime “Robinson Crusoe and the Pirates’ Treasure”.

With music from the legendary Andrew Lloyd Webber, lyrics by Glenn Slater, and book by Julian Fellowes the story follows Dewey Finn, a wannabe musician who poses as a substitute teacher at a fancy prep school. The fun begins when it’s clear that the only lesson he’s interested in teaching is how to rock!

Abby says; "I am so excited to get to work on this awesome show and direct one of my favourite films growing up. The show pushes the boundaries and allows kids to fully express themselves but also allows adults to let loose and for everyone to find their inner rockstar! This being my RP directorial debut really is full circle for me. My first show with Richings was “The Wizard of Oz” in 2005. I think there is something so special about doing an adults and kids show as everybody learns from each other, and it becomes a proper family experience. I am delighted with the creativity within the production team. Sally and I have had this fate sealed for a while as our Mums worked together on shows including “Godspell”, also in 2005. I hope James will be able to calm the wild ideas and 3am phone calls! Jade, Leah and I met at Richings and so it really is a fully circle moment! I can’t wait to meet you all at the launch and can’t wait to start ‘sticking it to the man’!”


We are really looking forward to the upcoming launch night of our January production of "School of Rock" on Friday 12th July 2024 at Iver Village Hall. The evening is divided into youth and adult workshops - youth from 6-8pm and adults from 8-10pm.
