DULOG is the largest musical theatre society at Durham University. We aim to produce professional quality musical theatre and light opera within Durham University and allow as many people as possible to participate, in order to provide experience and nurture talent.
The society has been around for over 50 years, originally producing only light opera (hence the name), but now putting on a range of musicals of various styles. In recent years we have put on several cabarets, provided music at high profile university events and performed sets for many senior figures within the University, including former Chancellor Bill Bryson and current Chancellor Sir Thomas Allen. DULOG provides an opportunity for students to become involved in all aspects of musical theatre from acting, singing and dancing through to production, stage direction, musical direction and choreography. We stage five shows a year (including one at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe) and strive to make each year a diverse programme offering something for everyone. We have traditionally put on one Gilbert and Sullivan operetta every year, and in January or February comes the highlight of the DULOG calendar, our annual performance at the 500-seat Gala Theatre.
Our society’s passionate, colourful and professional productions bring to life the real value of performing arts within both the student and local community. Anyone who has seen a DULOG show will be able to testify to the professionalism seen and heard on stage.
