After almost two years out, we are in the process of planning the celebratory return of one of the theatre’s popular creative projects Royal & Derngate’s Community Choir (RDCC) to the building in September. To coincide with this, we are going to be hosting a short series of exclusive masterclasses with three legends from the music industry to reunite our wonderful members and welcome new ones.

The new look RDCC will continue to provide a vibrant annual concert as well as selected pre-shows in the foyers, but also introduce some exciting new creative artistic opportunities, that requires no auditions to join.
