Theatre Arts


Please log in to join this organisation.

Are you interested in theatre? Love watching it? Want to join a social society?

If any of these apply, then Theatre Arts Society is for you!

We offer our members plenty of great opportunities to get involved. 

This is what we aim to offer our members- 

  • Weekly Workshops 
  • Frequent Socials 
  • Trips off campus to watch shows and take in activities such as laser quest
  • A Christmas meal
  • A playwriting competition
  • A talent showcase
  • Five Productions on the main stage of the Lakeside Theatre
  • One Production within the Hex 
  • An annual Trip Abroad
  • An Awards evening at the end of the year

We have an excellent partnership with our campus theatre which allows our members to develop their skills and put on their own shows. There are opportunities throughout the year for acting, directing, producing, stage managing, technical work, singing, dancing and writing.


TAS compliments your degree with a range of events and workshops. Don't study theatre? No problem, many of our members (even some of our exec) don't either!

We have so many opportunities and activities, so regardless of whether you love performing, the technical part of theatre or simply watching theatre, come and find your place in TAS.
