The University of Canterbury Drama Society Incorporated

We're a student society, that doubles as a theatre company, with almost 100 years of experience running shows, festivals, and general hi-jinks. We aim to produce quality shows, promote a safe space to give theatre a go, and support drama and performing arts in the wider Christchurch community.




Once or twice a year, the Committee may open up submissions for proposals for the next major production. This process is governed by Article 10 of the Constitution. Documents detailing the process for the most recent round of proposals can be found below.

DramaSoc is governed by a constitution that lays out what we can, and are obligated to, do. It can be found below.

Current Version

The current version of the Constitution was modified at the Annual General Meeting on the 29th of September. Some amendments from that AGM are still pending IRD approval, and so are not included in the current ratified version of the Constitution.
The signed version is the formally ratified document, the esigned version is optimised for digital viewing.
