Renfrew Aranthrue Theatre Society (R.A.T.S.) was set up in 1992 in Renfrew as the name suggests.  However due to lack of rehearsal space we moved to St Ninian's Church Pollokshields in 1999 (Approx 50% of the members are also members of St Ninian's Church). We generally perform 2 shows per year, a pantomime in December and a play, which we stage in the Tramway, late spring early summer. We are basically an adult club co- opting children for the pantomime. The pantomimes are lively and funny and are always child friendly. The plays we perform range from farce to drama but whatever the genre the quality of performance is always of a very high standard and it is our aim to provide our audience with an enjoyable experience.
"The Witches of Pollok" by Anne Downie, a local author. This was based on a true story centred on the Pollok Estate. The Laird, Sir George Maxwell was the victim of witchcraft, bringing him close to death.  Janet Douglas, magnificently portrayed by Lorna Sinclair was eventually shown to be the perpetrator.  The music was all original, composed by Lynne McBirnie. To say the play was unsettling might be an exaggeration but the audience was left with a distinct feeling of unease.  A quite excellent performance - congratulations to Joyce Maxwell and her team.  SEW Next performance - a pantomime in the church hall, Wed 29 Nov to Sat 2 Dec
