By young people for young people

RicNic started in 2004 when a group of students staged a musical in their school holidays, taking on every challenge from performance to direction, fundraising to set-building. Now, RicNic is a flourishing theatre company that works with approximately 350 young people each year through summer productions , schools workshops and mentoring opportunities . RicNic has a small team of staff and trustees, who support participants and productions in various ways. Several team members are RicNic alumni, remaining passionate about the group many years after their own RicNic story started.

About us

Patrons & Partners
Our summer projects are led every year by a talented group of young adults, recruited to form Production Teams for each of our branches. Each team consists of a Producer, Director, Choreographer and Technical Director aged 16-21. They in turn recruit Assistants for each role and bring together the cast, crew and band for their chosen musical production. Read on to meet this year’s teams at RicNic Hampshire, RicNic Oxford, RicNic London & RIcNic Burton
"I can't quite express how much this company, and the people in it, means to me. In them I was able to find a place with people who were just as weird as me, and they were totally cool with it. I was finally able to find somewhere I am comfortable being me, which I've never truly had before.”
