The Millbank Theatre was built in 1988 and extended and refurbished in 2002. It is wholly-owned and controlled by Rush Dramatic Society and is a unique venue in Irish cultural life.
In 1986 the Society purchased a property at Chapel Green, Rush and through Government/Local Authority grant aid, its own resources and a FAS Project. Since the theatre first opened, almost 100,000 patrons have enjoyed over 90 productions by Rush Dramatic Society.
Throughout the year, we stage five productions by Rush Dramatic Society.
In February each year, we host the opening festival in the ADCI competitive season and this festival has become a firm favourite with our audiences. We also host numerous musical gigs and community events throughout the year. With over 100 members, Rush Dramatic Society continues to provide quality entertainment and challenging plays, as well as serving the community by providing a high-quality, state-of-the-art venue in which many events can be hosted.
Our primary aim is to “to foster a love of drama and theatre in the community”.
