Welcome to the University of York!

Congratulations on getting a place here at the University of York. We hope you will love your time here and we are excited to be a part of your University life!

Who are we?

York Dramasoc is one of York’s largest societies with over 200 members. Our members work together to put on 16 shows a term, with over 100 performances per year.

We are run by our wonderful committee who are always up for a chat. If you have any general questions about the society, head over to our facebook page where there will always be someone available to talk!

What can I do?

Dramasoc is entirely student run and lead meaning we are always on the lookout for new people to get involved with our shows.

From acting to directing, lighting design to dramaturgy, there is an abundance of opportunity for you to get involved with as many shows as you want!

The Freshers Play

Since 2019, Dramasoc runs a fresher’s play, which is directed, produced, designed and acted in entirely by freshers. This is a great way to get involved with the society, without the pressure of having to pitch the show.

This year’s freshers play will be Lysistrata by Aristophanes. This will be our week 8 show

(20-22 November) and we are excited to work with you on this project!

Applications for an exec prod team will open soon! Watch this space for more information.
