Ruddigore cast announced!

We’re thrilled to announce our cast for this summer’s production of Ruddigore. The standard of auditions was incredibly high, giving us a fantastic pool of talent to choose from, so we would like to congratulate everyone on their efforts – and for keeping us surprised and entertained throughout the auditions. Thank you to everyone who auditioned – you should all be very proud of yourselves! Without further ado:

  • Rose Maybud – Jenni Simmonds
  • Robin Oakapple – Simon Jones
  • Sir Despard Murgatroyd – Chris Cann
  • Mad Margaret – Laura Jamie Anstice
  • Richard Dauntless – David Condry
  • Dame Hannah – Helena Culliney
  • Sir Roderic Murgatroyd – Jeremy Lowe
  • Zorah – Lucy Harrold
  • Old Adam – Denzil Edwards
  • Ruth – Juliet Crissell

Congratulations all! We’re looking forward to getting started. The first rehearsal will be a full-company call for 7.00pm on Wednesday 29 March at Holy Trinity Church, Prince Consort Road, Kensington to make a start on the music. All are welcome to join our chorus of professional bridesmaids, morris dancers, city gents, villagers, and ghostly ex-baronets – no audition required. There’s lots of great music, spooky business and silly dancing to be had, so please come along!

If you would like to be involved and have any questions for us please feel free to email

We look forward to seeing you there!
Tony, Alex, Fay, Chris and Steve
