Occasionally, DramSoc receives ticket offers or invitiations to external auditions/workshops. When that happens, we usually try and send them out to the mailing list, but we’re also keen to avoid sending you all emails every day.

To make life easier, we’re also posting these opportunities on this page as they come in – check back occasionally to see what’s going on!

For discounted tickets in particular, we’ve removed the discount codes from the text on this page, as they’re intended for our members – if you’re a member and want to take advantage of one of the offers, contact us and we’ll pass it on!

For DramSoc-based opportunities, make sure to check in on our pages for Production Roles (for – you guessed it – production roles) and Upcoming Shows (for auditions and show dates).

If you have an opportunity you’d like to offer to our members – whether it be auditions, discounted tickets, workshops, or pretty much anything even vaguely theatre related, get in touch with us at [email protected]!

On to the fun stuff!

Auditions (External)

We’re not aware of any external auditions at present, but that doesn’t mean they’re not happening! To the internet!


Screenwriting Opportunity

We’ve been contacted by Zabin Farishta, who is looking for “a talented screewriter/storyteller for a web series”. We’ve seen some of the fantastic work you’ve come up with, so you all definitely fit the bill of “talented”. If you’re interested, get in touch with us on [email protected] and we’ll set you up!

Inspire: Playwright Programme – Hampstead Theatre: 2 July

This year Hampstead Theatre is launching Inspire: The Next Playwright Programme, an opportunity for playwrights aged between 18 and 25 to develop their craft under the mentorship of award-winning playwright Roy Williams.

Beginning in September 2017, the playwrights will attend monthly group sessions with Roy and visiting practitioners, as well as one-on-one meetings. They will also be given the opportunity to submit drafts for feedback and to hold a reading of their work with professional actors at Hampstead Theatre. In September 2018, all drafts will be considered for presentation in our Downstairs studio, and the playwrights will meet with our Executive team to discuss their work.

The programme is completely free and we will offer a bursary of £200 towards travel throughout the year. Applications close at midnight on Sunday 2 July; more information about the programme and the application process can be found here at our website.

There is no entry fee.

Guy Manton is a national treasure, the much-loved host of a caustic television panel show, until a throwaway remark is inadvertently shared with the whole world and, before Guy knows what is happening, he is being battered by the Twitstorm.

Improv – Nursery Theatre (also includes Workshops/Performance Opportunities): from 1st June

The Nursery Theatre is dedicated to the art of improvisation, and is opening in Liverpool Street from the 1st June.
We are really keen for the theatre to support and develop the improv community in London and we’d like to offer your society discounted tickets for shows. DramSoc member? Email [email protected] for the discount code!
Also, if you are keen to get some stage time, we have a FREE weekly “jam” session called Thursday Night Lights, which features improvised acts and dedicated sections where anyone can get up on stage and perform in short improvised games and scenes – no experience necessary!
We run regular classes – from eight-week courses to individual drop-in classes, where you can come along for one session without signing up long-term – and social events, which attract a mixture of improvisers, comedians and actors and are a great place to meet people, form teams and hear about new performance opportunities. We also have five rehearsal rooms available of various sizes.
