Aston Drama Society aims to encourage active participation in drama activities and foster any interest, passion or talent for acting and the performing arts as well as providing something new for students. Whether you want to just have fun, refine your skills in becoming a professional actor, get involved in performances, all of these or more, we hope to have something for you!
Every Wednesday from 6pm - 8pm in the main building in MB504. Sessions typically last up to two hours, but may vary. We will update this page to reflect any changes. During Mainstage Rehearsals, we meet Mondays and Wednesdays at 6pm for 2 hour rehearsal sessions for Actors and Tech Crew in our usual room, MB 504.
Value for money and membership
We charge £5 for membership, and for this you get regular sessions packed with fun and exciting activites, the chance to audition for our mainstage productions, "Star Wars - A Forced Play", and "The Lord of The Flies," the opportunity to realise your potential as a performer and develop transferable skills such as communication, organisation/planning and presentation, as well as boost your confidence. All of this while meeting new people and building new friendships!
Through our partnership with Pryzm and other pubs/clubs in the Birmingham area, we hold regular events including social outings, bar crawls, and trips to theatre productions and film studios (budget permitting!) We are in communication with local theatres about group bookings to watch theatre productions and gain backstage access to actors and Q&As.
Auditions will be announced in September for the Star Wars play, and auditions for Lord of The Flies will occur mid-December.
Join us the first two weeks of October for an exclusive audition workshop!
