Hi again lovelies! Hope you've all had a wonderful reading week :)

This week is the week of our first Bloomsbury show ever: 'Revolt. She Said. Revolt Again'! Remember to buy tickets for this show before they're sold out! More info on this later in the email...

We only have one other event this week: our weekly workshop! I'll elaborate on this further in the email.

Hi again lovelies! I'd like to apologise to you all for not sending last week's newsletter – I've had a very busy week last week!

We have another busy week of events for you guys, so get excited! If you haven't already, please buy membership for Drama Soc on this link:

Hello again to our mailing list members and our paying members! For those of you who haven't yet bought membership for Drama Soc, please do so ASAP if you want to participate in our events! 

You are now required to have membership to join events such as our EGM and workshops. Please buy membership on this website: Membership is only £10 for a whole year (in my opinion, this is a GREAT deal).

I'd like to begin by apologising to you all for cancelling today's EGM. Unfortunately, due to some admin problems, we were unable to carry on with our EGM today. Instead, we have postponed it to next Friday (25th October), 5:00-7:00 pm! Location details will be announced in another email and on Facebook – watch this space!

NB: Those who want to attend the EGM are not allowed to buy membership on the day of the EGM. Please buy membership before Friday if you want to attend the EGM and run for any positions and/or vote!

To our paying members who have not signed up for our mailing list, don't fret! You will only receive emails regarding the EGM. This is because it is a Union requirement for societies to announce our EGMs to all paying members through email at least 5 working days before the EGM is due to occur. You won't receive any other emails from us (unless you subscribe to our mailing list! Send me an email at if you previously didn't sign up to our mailing list but would like to stay subscribed to us).

Keep reading for more details on the EGM!

PS: If democracy isn't convincing enough for you, we will have PIZZA at our EGM for ALL members attending!!

corrections and additions to this week's event list!

Hello to all our new (and old!) UCL Drama Society mailing list members! My name is Khadeejah (but you can call me Deeja!) and I'm your Secretary for 2019/2020! By signing up to our mailing list, you have consented to reading any and all of my ramblings (sorry if I bore you, but I do hope I wouldn't!). A few things you should know about me: I'm a tiny 5'1 final year BA English student who's no longer a fan of books thanks to my degree and would rather spend the rest of my life watching plays and musicals if I could!

If any of you have any questions for me (or the other members of our lovely society), don't be afraid to message our Facebook page! You can find us here:

We've got a fantabulous week of events lined up for each and every one of our members, whether new, old, experienced, fresh into Drama, etc.!

Hello all!

It's a very exciting time for Drama Society! Below is an update on our Annual General Meeting and how you can run and vote for committe positions.


Drama Update: Bloomsbury Bids, Workshops and More!

E-mail sent by Khadeejah binti Abdul Halim, Sunday, 24th February 2019 @ 4:30pm

Hello all,

We have lots and lots of exciting oppurtnities and events coming up for all you drama lovers. Take a peek below to see what Drama Soc has in store...

Act II Addendum

E-mail sent by Khadeejah binti Abdul Halim, Thursday, 29th November 2018 @ 9:26pm

Alongside it's name change (previously the London Student Drama Festival), the Act II festival has lots of snazzy new changes to its proccess and structure. PLEASE DISREGARD THE INFORMATION ABOUT ACT II IN MY PREVIOUS E-MAIL.

Writers can apply here:

Each writer that applies will be invited to an interview with the Drama Soc Committee. You do not need to have experience or have a play written! We are looking for creative enthusiasm and writers will be selected based on ideas!

If you are chosen to participate in the festival, you will attend a workshop and intro meeting in December, followed by a series of writers workhsops, held by professional playrights, in January to help develop your ideas into a play. Plays will be cast at the end of January and performed sometime between late February and March. Finished plays should be around 30 minutes long. While rehearsals are taking place professional directors will come into a rehearsal to help with the development of your show.

All shows will be put on as part of the ACT II Festival. Selected shows will have the opportunity to perform again in collaboration with a producing theatre in London as part of the ‘pick of the festival’.

We look forward to hearing from you!


too many things for an all-inclusive title

Hi friends!
I have SO much to tell you about this week so I'll keep this intro short and sweet and just say that I'M SO EXCITED ABOUT EVERYTHING HAPPENING PLS COME TO IT ALL 

An Extra Dramatic Week

E-mail sent by Khadeejah binti Abdul Halim, Monday, 12th November 2018 @ 10:10pm

It seems only fitting that the return of the Drama society e-mail is accompanied with possibly the most Dramatic week of this term so far:

We've got SHOWS, we've got BIDS, we've got SOCIALS, we've got WORKSHOPS and we've got a sleep-deprived Secretary who is very unlikely to proof-read this e-mail. What more could you want?

EGM and other exciting happenings

E-mail sent by Khadeejah binti Abdul Halim, Friday, 5th October 2018 @ 3:20pm

Hi pals,

I'm fully aware that I promised an email early this week and that it is now Friday afternoon but third year has already turned me into a zombie. 

NONETHELESS, we have lots of exciting stuff coming up this week so read on to satisfy your Drama Soc craving.


E-mail sent by Khadeejah binti Abdul Halim, Sunday, 30th September 2018 @ 1:18am

Hello all and welcome back to another wonderful exciting year at UCL Drama Society and a special welcome to everyone who signed up to the mailing list at the Freshers' Fair today! Though I’m sure many of you only signed up so you could snag some Haribos - you now have the pleasure of reading my ramblings every week. For those of you who don't know; I'm Trini, your administrator for 2018/2019 (aka the new and slightly less witty Hannah)! Although I am but a tiny five foot tall human, I hold all the knowledge and secrets of this wonderous society. My regular emails will be jam-packed with information about auditions, events, workshops, and socials - all of which can also be found on our Facebook group:

And here we are, at exams. Ahh, the inevitable ephemerality of life, and the delicious taste of my 4th coffee of the day on my tongue. Ahh. Sweet, sweet exams.

We do have things to distract you.

BIDS + AGM the sequel + ARTS BOL = some wholesome and fruity (gluten free) drama fun
