Welcome to SUDS
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.
SUDS returns to the stage once again! From 29 June to 2 July 2022 we shall be performing ‘Going to Pot’ by Georges Feydeau in the University Drama Studio. Tickets are now on sale! More information here.
Our normal operation in 2020-2022 has been affected by the COVID-19 pandemic but the show goes on – we were finally able to return to the stage in December 2021 with one of Shakespeare’s most popular and accessible plays – Twelfth Night, directed by Ian Gledhill! You can see photos from the play and more information here.
In addition to that, we also held a series of very successful virtual play-reading sessions online in 2020 and 2021 and we have published clips from video recordings of the sessions – you can see them by clicking here!
In 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!
