What is RicNic?
Each summer, RicNic produces full-scale musicals in amazing venues, where every member of the company – from the director to the dancers to the designers to the drummer- is aged 16 to 21 years.
Without adult supervision or direction, RicNic’s participants work as a team during an intensive rehearsal period, with the goal of creating a professional quality performance in only four weeks.
Best of all, we provide an amazing theatrical opportunity for young aspiring actors, producers, musicians, directors, stage technicians and designers without charging them a single penny to partake. With no fee we therefore encourage passionate young people from all walks of life to join the supportive and collaborative environment that RinNic creates.
Why do we need your support?
As a UK registered charity, our objective is to remain self-sustaining, to further enrich the arts and culture in our local area and to connect with the community, not only with the young people taking part, but also to the audiences who come to enjoy our performances.
RicNic has greatly impacted all those who are involved, giving them freedom and encouragement to express their talents, and we hope, with your help, to continue to provide this wonderful opportunity.
This Year’s Show
This year, RicNic 2019 are proud to be presenting the well-loved classic, Thoroughly Modern Millie. After an intensive rehearsal period throughout August, our production will take to the stage from 28th- 31st August at the prestigious Theatre Royal, Winchester. You can buy your tickets here!
This charming comedy follows Millie Dilmount, a small-town girl who moves to New York City with a 'thoroughly modern goal'; to find a rich husband.
With a plethora of jazzy, catchy numbers- from Gimme Gimme to Not for the Life of Me- and a host of larger-than-life characters, Thoroughly Modern Millie promises to be an unforgettable evening at the theatre!
