The aim of Dramsoc is to bring people together who have any interest in theatre whether that be acting, directing, stage managing, costuming, dramaturgy, props, set building, front of house and watching entertaining shows. We want to give these members the chance to get to get involved as much as possible by putting on a play almost every week of the semester. There are many opportunities in this society, mainly to get experience and make like minded friends but there is also many opportunities through our workshops, auditions and our contacts with other societies such as Film Soc, GUMS and Comedy Soc and our contacts outside the college with other theatre companies and directors. Dramsoc has added greatly to the cultural life of the university by providing a place for students, lecturers and many others to get involved in the theatre. We provide full lenght plays almost every week for a very modest price and seek to educate and entertain not only our audience but our many members. Our society also provides the opportunity for writers and choreographers to present their original work. Each year Dramsoc takes part in the ISDA (Irish Student Drama Association) festival, this an inter university event where various universities from across Ireland come together to showcase the best work of their seasons, and are awarded accordingly. Our society has worked extremely hard at providing entertainment and artistic outlets to the students of NUIG and the wider community for the last 100 years.
