Welcome to SUDS

About Us

A popular amateur dramatic society with longstanding links to the local community, Sheffield University Drama Society (SUDS) is a friendly and welcoming theatre group in the heart of Sheffield. We always welcome new members and whether you’re a budding thespian or keen to get involved with production design, directing, stage management, marketing, front-of-house roles or with our technical team, we’d love to hear from you.

For our latest news you can follow us on Facebook, Instagram or Twitter.

Our normal operation has been affected by the COVID-19 pandemic but the show goes on – we held 3 very successful virtual play-reading sessions online in September, November and December and we have been gradually publishing clips from video recordings of the sessions – you can see them by clicking here!

We have now also planned an online performance of ‘La Ronde’ by Arthur Schnitzler on Wednesday April 28th – you can click here for more information.

In May we also held an online rehearsal of our upcoming production, Les Liaisons Dangereuses, that you can watch here. In addition to that, we created the first SUDS online theatre quiz in July which is now over but you can still access the quiz here if you want to test your theatre knowledge!

We can also recommend you to listen to The Broken Crab, an audio play that was created for Festival of the Mind. Hannah Goraya, the producer of the play, and Julia Busby who stars as the lead character Kim are both SUDS alumni and very talented people so we can guarantee you will love the play!
