Gold - Excellent
The UCSU Musical Theatre Society is a fun, energetic and exciting community that provides performance opportunities to students on all courses.
We provide between 4 and 6 large, high quality, productions per year, including showcases and full musicals. We also provide workshops, socials and trips. It is all about having fun, making friends, expanding skills and making the most of your time at university!
WE HAVE 2 SHOWS FOR YOU TO BE PART OF THIS 2ND SEMESTER:
WHY CHOOSE MT SOCIETY:
Whether you're a singer, dancer, actor, or someone who just has a passion for musicals, this society is for you! Don’t fancy yourself as a performer? No worries! There are plenty of non-performance roles in society that combine skills such as events management, music performance, directing, musical directorship, choreographing, and stage management.
Productions will be confirmed at the beginning of each semester, and members can then audition in front of the shows creative teams. Members may only audition for one show per semester, and if you’re unsuccessful will not be able to apply for another show. However, in the event that we are running an additional concert or showcase that semester, we will endeavour to host those auditions slightly later than main show auditions, so that unsuccessful auditionees may audition for this additional opportunity.
Rehearsals run on Mondays and Thursday from 7.30-9.30pm, with additional rehearsals being hosted on a Tuesday's (usually closer to the shows opening night) at the discretion of the creative team!
For fresher’s, we host a dedicated showcase in semester 1 where you can audition for leading roles in popular musical theatre pieces. This is the perfect opportunity for you to show off your talents in an exclusive environment, and is highly recommended by many of our members! It is much more likely that Fresher’s will gain a solo or principal role in this production, however this does not stop you from auditioning for other shows if you wish (however, you can still only audition for the one show per semester.)
Musical theatre society membership is £22 per year, inclusing your society fed membershipl. There is a £20 show fee for successful auditionees, which covers show costs and also a promotional t-shirt for the production you're in.
