The Durham Showcase 2020 has taken the decision to follow university guidelines and cancel both performances, we are looking at rescheduling the Durham performance for late June - we will be sure to announce any developments.
Durham Student Theatre (DST) is one of the largest and most successful university theatre societies in the UK, with more than 700 members staging over 100 productions each year. DST supports its 30 theatre companies, who are responsible for award-winning plays and musicals at both the National Student Drama Festival and the Edinburgh Festival Fringe.
DST runs its own theatre, The Assembly Rooms Theatre, and provides theatre companies with box office staff, props, costumes, set, make-up, advice as well as technical expertise and equipment. Each February DST hosts the Durham Drama Festival, a week-long celebration of original theatre, written and performed by students and adjudicated by a panel of industry professionals. DST offers a unique opportunity for students to be involved in all aspects of theatre, whether it be performing, working backstage with the technical team, designing sets and costumes or even producing and directing.
