Durham Student Theatre

Durham has one of the most exciting student theatre scenes in the country, with over seventy productions annually and over twenty-five active theatre companies. Durham Student Theatre (DST) looks after those companies as well as their members, helping them out with training courses, discounted tickets, services, facilities and the management of our very own theatre – the Assembly Rooms.

The Assembly Rooms Theatre offers a traditional proscenium arch theatre in the centre of the historic city of Durham, with great technical support and opportunities available. On top of this shows are performed all over Durham, from the iconic Durham Cathedral to the Indoor Market, there is no limit to the opportunities available. Durham theatre companies regularly head up to the Edinburgh Festival Fringe, as well as locations across the UK. We also celebrate and encourage new pieces of writing at our own yearly Durham Drama Festival.

From Pinter to Porter, Shakespeare to Sondheim, there is no shortage of opportunities in DST.
