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 of all disciplines in, and encourage them to interact with, drama on some level whilst also entertaining our fellow college and university members. Green Door produce one central play per term and take full responsibility for the college pantomime at the end of the Michaelmas Term and the Garden Party performance piece at the end of the Easter 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
As VP my role is pretty varied for Green Door. I generally try and pitch in wherever I can, deputising to Marcus (Green Door's president), and supporting the other committee members, taking on odd jobs such as helping to coordinate productions or working as a stage hand.
As treasurer, I am in charge of the financial side of Green Door. My role involves overseeing the day to day running of the theatre company's accounts and coordinating any large purchases such as our new stage with the JCR and SocComm, as well as assisting and advising the producer of each show with creating and sticking to a budget.
As secretary I take minutes during our meetings and circulate them afterwards. I also help out with Green Door productions within college. I also directed and produced a few plays last year with DST and I hope to do the same this year!
Green Door's Technical Manager
As Technical Manager, I am responsible for the care, distribution and hire of all things technical at Green Door. I look after the lighting and sound equipment and aid the technical directors in using it for the productions. I am also in charge of hiring the equipment and the JCR's stage out across the university.
