Green Door Theatre Company

Much like its college, the Green Door Theatre Company is the smallest of its kind in Durham. However, as any Chadsian will tell you, size is not indicative of skill and Green Door actively persevere to embody the ‘Small but mighty’ ethos of the college.

Our aim is to engage Chadsians and members of the university with drama on many levels, whilst also entertaining our fellow college and university members. With opportunities for acting, directing, producing and getting involved in the tech, drama is an important and diverse part or Chad’s. Green Door produce at least one central play per term and take full responsibility for the college pantomime at the end of the Michaelmas Term.

Currently Green Door are the only DST (Durham Student Theatre) Company that exists as part of its college JCR. This means that Green Door benefits from a wonderfully close relationship with St Chad’s College and that Chadsians of all ages, from the multiple common rooms, profit from the opportunities that having their own theatre company affords them.

Green Door welcome actors, producers, directors and tech members of all levels of experience and skill. If you want to be involved we’ll find a way to get you working with us. Engaging, approachable and, most importantly, fun Green Door is a Theatre Company run by students for students and love doing what we do.

Green Door Executive Committee

Adam Hargreaves


As the Green Door Theatre Company President, it is my job to oversee the the running of the college’s theatre company. I chair all of Green Door’s meetings, timetable all of college productions and oversee the production of all Green Door plays. Along with my exec, I am responsible for deciding which artistic direction to take the company in. Theatre has been a large part of my first year, alongside my sport and chemistry degree, and I look forward to an exciting year of Green Door with the new direction that this exec has. Whether it be a pitch of a show, some questions about Durham student theatre or some queries about Green Door, I am always around for a chat and am keen to get as many Chadsians involved in theatre.

As Green Door Theatre Company Vice President, my role is to support each member of the exec with their respective roles and to provide assistance to the president with organisation and casting. A specific new feature of my role is the general management of the Green Door publicity, the website and the social media. I also update the accounts with details of upcoming productions. Theatre has been a huge part of my life at Durham so far and I can’t wait for another exciting year for Green Door Theatre Company and am thrilled to be part of the exec for this year.
