The Organisers

The University of Southampton Comedy Society aims to provide a wide range of comedy entertainment to appreciative audiences. We seek to encourage aspiring young writers, performers, producers and directors to enhance their creative skills in the pursuit of laughter.

We are the Light Opera Society and have a long, established history, having performed light operas and operettas since 1972. Each year, LOpSoc presents two shows: these are often operettas written by Gilbert and Sullivan, or other musical works.The former of these is performed for a second time at the International G&S Festival in Harrogate every August.These British theatre classics are always comedic, extravaganzas. Anybody who wants to get involved, be in on stage or off, in either of our shows is very welcome! Anybody who wants to get involved in one or both of our shows is very welcome. Our chorus is non-auditioned and we rehearse at 7pm every Tuesday, usually in Building 34/4013 (the large room on the right at the top of the staircase). Our members join from all different courses of the university and come from all different backgrounds, which provides the society with a wide variety of personalities along with a great range of talents. Auditions for principal parts in the first show are usually held at the beginning of the academic year; for the second show, these auditions are usually held in December. We are a very laid-back society: we thoroughly enjoy what we do and we have great fun in the process. So why not come along and try something new? Anyone and everyone is welcome to sign up, join our society and get on-stage! For more information, please find us on Facebook (http://www.facebook.com/groups/2205079779/) or visit our website (www.lopsoc.co.uk). If you would like to get to know us, please feel free to join our Facebook group and, to find out more about our history, why not drop in on our wiki page, which documents over 40 years of shows and members (http://www.lopsoc.org.uk/wiki/Main_Page).

Showstoppers is a Performing Arts Musical Theatre society. If you've any interest at all in performing in, directing, producing, conducting, playing in a band for, writing or seeing musicals, or just giving any of the above a go, this is the society for you. We offer members the opportunity to take part in numerous productions throughout the year, including a "Freshers" show at the beginning of the year (open to anybody who hasn't performed with us before), culminating in the chance to take shows to the Edinburgh Festival Fringe in August. We also run regular open-house meetings for members to improve skills within the musical theatre genre, as well as Cabaret nights offering chances to perform outside of shows. It's easy to get involved - just drop one of us a message, or come along to a workshop or an audition!

A society to improve theatrical skills through workshops; original writing; producing; directing; and acting. We aim to celebrate creativity in all mediums of drama and to provide all society members with a fun, inclusive environment to further their individual skill sets and to form a community with a love of theatre.

We are the University of Southampton Students’ Union (also called "SUSU"). We are here to represent the voice of students at every level and ultimately make their university experience unforgettable. Independent from the University, we're run by students, for students!
