UL Drama Society is a diverse group of students with one crucial common interest; we all love theatre in one way, shape or form! Maybe you are a veteran stage school student. Or maybe you’ve never been within 20 feet of a stage and want to give it a go. Here at Drama Soc, EVERYONE is welcome – no exceptions! Performing is of course a huge part of Drama Soc – each year we run a number of productions, ranging from comedy to drama, with the odd musical thrown in for good measure! But if you’re not one for the limelight, fear not! We encourage members to cultivate their own unique talents and explore all aspects of theatre. Be it directing, script writing, set design, stage management or costumes and cosmetics... We embrace it all! We run weekly Wednesday workshops based on performing aspects such as stage confidence, character development and improvisation. These workshops are split between society members and outside experts who work professionally in theatre, which greatly improves the skills of our members. Every second Tuesday we offer technical workshops based on backstage elements such as prop design and lighting. Our writers group also meets on Tuesdays, where members develop scripts that could one day be brought to life on stage by our society! It truly is a dynamic society with something for everyone. Trips and events are a key aspect of Drama Soc. Be it fund-raising quiz nights, Drama Awards Night (Our answer to the Academy Awards!) or the very popular annual Drama Soc Sleepover, we are kept occupied! And it has to be said – Our wrap parties are pretty legendary. Drama Soc go on regular theatre trips, supporting local talent in venues such as the Bell Table and the Lime Tree Theatre. In the last year we have spread our wings further afield – to the cosmopolitan city of London, none the less!! Drama members had the chance to experience the mesmerizing West End stage – a bucket list feature for any lover of theatre. Over time we’ve worked hard to build up our society to improve the experience of our members. UL Drama Soc is more than just a society – it is a family. When you look back on your time with us, you may not remember the lines you spent hours learning – But you won’t forget the memories you made with life-long friends.
