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.

SUDS are returning to the stage at last with one of Shakespeare’s most popular and accessible plays – Twelfth Night! Click here for more information.

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

On 28th April 2021 we held our historically first online performance. It was ‘La Ronde’ by Arthur Schnitzler, in a new translation / adaptation by our own Ian Gledhill. You can now watch the recording of the amazing performance here!

In May 2021 we also held an online rehearsal of one of our upcoming productions, Les Liaisons Dangereuses, that you can watch here.
