TDTC was founded in 2010 with the aim of bringing small-cast musicals to Durham. Since then it has brought shows ranging from the two-person cast of The Last 5 Years to Little Shop of Horrors to the Durham stage. TDTC prides itself on its high quality of productions and is always searching for the best new musicals. TDTC is also renowned for its showcases, with a Freshers’ Showcase and a themed Easter showcase bookending each academic year. Anyone is welcome to audition or be involved in our productions, onstage or off, and auditions will always be open and advertised through the DST newsletter.
