Dramsoc

University of Galway Dramsoc is a 117 year old society focused on creating a platform for our members to make theatre and meet new people. Whether you are a budding playwright, a newbie actor, or a keen audience member, we welcome everyone! UG Socs Awards Best Society (Cultural/Social/Academic) 2023.


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, or watching entertaining shows. We want to give these members the chance to get to get involved as much as possible by running two events a week, multiple one-acts, bootcamps, specialty weeks, and putting on 4 main slot shows every semester.

There are many opportunities in this society, mainly to get experience and make like minded friends - but there are also many opportunities through our workshops, auditions, and our contacts with other societies such as GUMs, Bród Soc, and Film Soc; as well 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 facilitate many different kinds of performances in a variety of theatre spaces 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 Society Drama Awards) festival, 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 the University of Galway and the wider community for the last 100 years.
