Each year the Department stages a season of plays closely tied to its academic and practical work. Productions are performed by second year students in the areas of technical theatre, scenic/costume design and stage management. First year students assist with the running of the theatre in both front of house and backstage duties.
Plays are directed either by members of the Department or guest directors from the professional theatre. Productions are staged in the department's own performance space, George Cadbury Hall.
