Leeds University Union Theatre Group

Formed in 1919 as the Leeds University Union Dramatic Society, and known as Theatre Group since 1945, TG is one of the University’s longest established societies that has lasted due to two key reasons:

1.We are passionate about creating the highest quality theatre
2.We are committed to giving each of our members the best opportunities to get involved in the theatre

We hold proposal meetings each semester, giving aspiring directors and producers the opportunity to present potential production ideas. Once selected each play is given a budget, a venue, and support from the society in order to actualize the production. Auditions for these plays are open to all members of TG and are a great way of meeting other enthusiastic actors. Furthermore, last year TG established a shadowing scheme, in which first years are given the opportunity to follow student directors and producers throughout their rehearsal process toward their production, giving shadowers a chance to see what goes on behind the scenes. Last year several of our shadowers went on to direct and produce their own plays. Each play also holds a fundraiser, which is a fantastic way to meet other members of the society and hear about our latest productions.

We produce all kinds of theatre; contemporary, classical or physical work as well as new student writing, encompassing the funny, serious, topical and sometimes ridiculous theatre. Last years work included well known pieces such as Romeo and Juliet, A Streetcar Named Desire and a Servant to Two Masters, as well as lesser known and new writing (please check out examples of promotional videos on this page). We are extremely proud of the high standard of work and passion behind each piece of theatre, and are incredibly excited for the upcoming semester, where our productions include Punk Rock by Simon Stephens, Vinegar Tom by Caryl Churchill, A Chorus of Disapproval by Alan Aykbourn Titus Andronicus by William Shakespeare and Shoot/Get Treasure/Repeat by Mark Ravenhill,
