Durham’s theatre scene is unlike that of virtually any other university in the UK. On the one hand, DST acts as an umbrella organisation for many theatre companies affiliated to us: providing them with services such as managing and providing box-office staff, props, costumes, set, make-up, advice, not to mention a fantastic range of technical expertise and equipment. On the other hand, we’re also a union for our members: students who love the performing arts: be it treading the boards, writing the story, directing the action, working backstage, rigging the lights, making the costumes, designing the sound or simply enjoying the show.
