RicNic is a genuine youth theatre company - a unique social enterprise where young people really do get to run the show.
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.
Given responsibility and trust instead of adult supervision, RicNic participants have the best month of their lives proving what remarkable things they can achieve, and developing leadership, teamwork and valuable professional skills at the same time.
Best of all, it doesn't cost a penny: RicNic projects don't have any compulsory participation fees. Talent and passion are what counts.
RicNic has a track record of award-winning shows spanning a decade, having expanded from our original home in Winchester to open branches in Oxford (2012) and London (2017). More branches are on the horizon - stay tuned!
RicNic has already provided extraordinary experiences for thousands of participants and audience members. If you join us, we'll be even better.
