About this group

The UCLU Drama Society is one of the country’s leading student drama companies and one of the largest and most successful performing arts societies at UCL.

UCLU Drama Society has a simple aim: to create excellent and innovative student theatre. Whether you’re a seasoned actor looking to pursue a career in the theatre, or if you’ve never been on the stage in your life, joining the Drama Society is a great way to make new friends and enjoy all the exciting theatrical opportunities UCL has to offer. In fact, our society is frequently recognised at the annual Arts Colours Awards for our outstanding work. We have recently received numerous societal awards, most notably Best Society (2011), and Most Developed Society (2012).

Each year, UCLU Drama Society puts on as many as 20 productions, meaning that you’ll rarely find a time that a play is neither in production or performance. In previous years, we have put on vivid re-imaginings of everything from Shakespeare to Philip Ridley. On campus, we boast the Bloomsbury Theatre (a listed 550-seat West End theatre where we put on two large-scale productions a year). We also regularly stamp our mark on acclaimed theatres and performance spaces across the capital. Our productions are consistently popular and critical successes, with the society garnering particular praise for our annual run at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival through our touring company, UCLU Runaground. Each of our productions offers a number of fantastic opportunities. So whether you want to act, direct, produce, design/set/lighting/costume/props or write the next dramatic masterpiece, we are here to help develop your ideas and make them into a reality.

The UCLU Drama Society also has an exceptional programme of events outside of university productions, including weekly workshops, new writing workshops, socials and volunteering opportunities.

A Clarification...

Apologies, on the last e-mail it looks as though Drama Soc is endorsing Student Trustee candidates, which we're not allowed to do.

Just to clarify, although I, Josie Charles, Secretary, think you should definitely vote for the Culture Club candidates, the Society as a whole reccommends NO SUCH THING.

If you're looking to vote for the Student Trustees, the Society reccommends you read through all the different manifestos here to make a balanced vote:
