What we’re all about

Open Theatre are LUU's experimental performance 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 at least 8 shows every year, and experiment with a range of different roles, including acting, directing, writing, production and design. 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.

Absolutely not! Open Theatre is about experimenting with new types of performance and exploring what theatre you love. We encourage everyone to have a go, regardless of experience or background!
Nope! We have plenty of opportunities for members that don't want to be on stage, including trips to the theatre, workshops with industry professionals, and a variety of socials around the city.
