The Red Sauce Theatre Company….

Hello!  we are a non for profit organisation based in Hampshire.  We deliver historical interpretive shows and in character workshops for schools, groups and events.  We work in an interactive way devising new shows and exploring the past through creative techniques.

With Specialism in Street-theatre and  Storytelling, we share the real stories of real people who lived here in Portsmouth.


Rachella the Storyteller ….by appointment only

Bringing the past to life and drama to your door-step 

We look at how our local heroes have influenced our lives through their own perceptions.  We talk directly to the pupils and through storytelling and simple drama strategies, we give them a direct insight into the past.  Our Shows and Workshops have been developed and enjoyed with fabulous success and contain musical soundtracks, stories and interactive activities
