The Really Useless Theatre Company are an Amateur Dramatic group based in Umberleigh, rural North Devon.

We’ve been running since 1987 and produce an annual Pantomime and Sketch show which runs in late February and early march each year.

The Umberleigh Pantomime has always tried to take an active role in the local community, and each year the proceeds from the production are used to support a number of local charities.
