Open Theatre

What we’re all about

Open Theatre are LUU's alternative theatre society. We facilitate your ideas and help you to create innovative performances around campus and the city. Open Theatre encourage our members to create shows which push the boundaries of theatre, welcoming both new writing pieces and original takes on well-loved classics. Together, we help our members stage on at least five shows every year. We can also help you to gain access to a huge range of both traditional and non-traditional performance spaces and offer workshops lead by current industry professionals.
