While you're digesting all of the lovely information in the below e-mail, make sure you're simultaneously writing the SOCIAL THIS TUESDAY, at PHINEAS from 7PM in your diary. It was a lovely occasion last week and sure to be just as warming-of-the-cockles-of-your-heart this week. Even if you don't know anyone in the society, just come along and look out for/start chatting to the friendly social sec Chloe (as pictured below).

E-mail sent by Khadeejah binti Abdul Halim, Tuesday, 6th January 2015 @ 4:50pm

Hi all and Happy New Year!

Firstly, congrats to the cast of Dr Faustus in December; the show was the final one in a very successful term, but Term 2 is set to be just as good - read ahead to find about about ways to get involved... If you can't be bothered to read the whole thing, use the contents to skip ahead to the sections relevant to you (there is a LOT of information below)

Also remember to come to the DRAMA SOCIAL at Phineas, this Tuesday 13th, 7PM - either catch up with old drama pals or if you don't know anyone in the society, make new friends!

Film Society are looking for actors - and they want them specifically from Drama Society! There will be auditions this weekend - get on the facebook group for more information; we'll post when we know more (https://www.facebook.com/groups/729821840417065/)

Hey all, it's Josie again and I'm back with a vengeance; there is so much I have to tell you about getting involved...

Firstly though, on behalf of the Society I want to say a massive well done to the cast and crew of Henry IV part I - if you didn't get to see it, you missed out. The show was an incredibly high standard, in the production values, direction and performances, and has really set the bar for Bloomsbury shows to come! Take note, future bidders...

Remember, as ever, if you want to ask questions or keep up to date with whats going on, the facebook group is the place to be: https://www.facebook.com/groups/729821840417065/, and there's loads of information about the society and what's going on on our website: www.ucludrama.org.uk

Many many things...

It's an exciting week for UCLU Drama Soc, read on to find out why...

Bid forms for RAG and Ecetera slots!

E-mail sent by Khadeejah binti Abdul Halim, Wednesday, 15th October 2014 @ 10:10pm

Attatched are the forms for prospective directors/producers for our RAG slot at the end of Term 1 and our bid for the Ecetera January festival!
The deadline for bids is the 26th October, and there is a bidding workshop on the 24th (look at the last e-mail for details!). Any bids sent to committee before the 19th October (4 days time) will get some feedback to improve on.

A Clarification...

E-mail sent by Khadeejah binti Abdul Halim, Tuesday, 14th October 2014 @ 6:34pm

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:

Bloomsbury Term 2 Auditions - a message from our Volunteering Co-ordinator, Emily

E-mail sent by Khadeejah binti Abdul Halim, Thursday, 9th October 2014 @ 6:45pm

Hi all,

Just wanted to let you know that I will be directing this year's Classics Play - Eurpides' "Bacchae" - at the Bloomsbury Theatre next term (February, 10-12th).

Since Drama Soc will not have a Bloomsbury show on that term, it would be great to see many of you auditioning.

Come along on the 13th, 14th, 15th October 2014 to our auditions! (18:00 - 21:00)

Where: Room 106, Gordon House - Department of Greek and Latin (Gordon Street)

If you want to find out more about the play and our production have a look at our Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/bacchae2015) or email me on: aimilia.louizou.13@ucl.ac.uk

Looking forward to seeing many of you there!

Emily x

NB: If anyone has already been cast in Henry or Betrayal feel free to audition here too as rehearsals for Bacchae will begin after both shows have ended! (if you cannot make any of the auditions slots contact me and I will arrange something else for you!)

Freshers Plays - TONIGHT !

E-mail sent by Khadeejah binti Abdul Halim, Sunday, 5th October 2014 @ 1:45pm

Come along and support our Freshers Plays tonight - 7.30PM in the Japenese Roof Garden Marquee (on the square garden behind the South Cloisters). Tickets are only £3!

The Freshers Plays are:

Line by Israel Horovitz (directed by Pavlos Christodoulou):

Line explores life through the metaphor of 5 people waiting in Line, all fighting to be first.

Beyond Therapy by Christopher Durang (directed by Vincenzo Monachello):

Beyond Therapy is a farcical comedy which centres around Bruce and Prudence, two unstable personalities desperately seeking romance. They rely on their psychiatric therapy to guide them through their love lives, but when their therapists are more unhinged than they are, it only results in further disaster and dismay!

Two by Jim Cartwright (directed by Eddie-Joe Robinson):

Two is a naturalistic tragicomedy that explores the relationships between couples in a pub. Through a series of two-handed scenes we are given a fleeting insight into the lives of the pub’s ‘regulars’ all in the space of one night.
