Dance and Drama

All the world's a stage and no where is this more obvious that at Durham University, home to a wealth of performing talent, with colleges and student societies presenting a wonderful range of comedy, drama and music, both old and new. Durham Student Theatre group incorporates many different production companies including DULOG, Durham Shakespeare Company, Castle Theatre Company, as well as several companies based at the individual colleges, offering a lively programme, showcasing performing talent and developing backstage skills. 

The recently refurbished Assembly Rooms Theatre plays host to live performances every week of term and is available as a venue for public performances out of term time.
