Student Theatre Community

Student Theatre Groups

Student theatre groups are exactly what they sound like – groups of students who produce and perform their own shows. We welcome ALL types of performance!
We have over 20 affiliated student theatre groups. You can find one you’d like to join in the list below or you can start your own group.

Open Groups

The following groups welcome new students every year. They usually recruit people throughout the year and will do call-outs for specific roles for each production e.g auditions and production team applications.
