There can be six or seven student productions every week during term-time.
If you’re a theatre-lover, look in any given week’s student papers to find out what’s on, sign up to the Drama Officer’s mailing list or just keep an eye out on Facebook for the events you’ll undoubtedly be invited to by a friendly thesp. Venue-wise, you have the choice: the Burton Taylor Studio (BT) offers a tight-knit atmosphere with 50 seats, the O’Reilly is set in Keble College with 180 seats in varying designs, while the Oxford Playhouse can fill 250 seats for each night they run (often Weds-Sat, with Thursday and Saturday mati- nees). Other shows take place in smaller rooms in colleges or other college-based theatres, and in warmer months many colleges produce their own garden show; these are often pretty cheap. Do bring a blanket to the outdoor ones as it can get pretty chilly.
