Introducing Imperial College Musical Theatre Society (MTSoc), host of spectacular shows since 1956. Whether you're hungry for an opportunity to dazzle in the spotlight, jump into the pit as part of our incredible band or work behind the scenes with costume, make-up and tech, MTSoc invites you to join us and find your niche in one of the most exciting societies Imperial has to offer.
With an ever expanding number of shows, including the full scale Spring Show, 24 hour musicals and Showcases, alongside great socials, MTSoc is a great way to get involved in something different. Previous shows include Sweeney Todd, The Rocky Horror Show, Billy Elliot, and The Producers. Below you can find a description of all our annual shows.Upcoming shows & events
The cabaret-style Revue show is MTSoc's first production of the year and is designed to welcome newcomers into the society and give everyone a taste of what the MTSoc is about. In addition to the show, which runs towards the end of autumn term, you can expect a variety of social events throughout the year including discounted West End trips, Rockaoke and MTSoc Sports Day. B
The Spring Show is the BIG one. With competitive auditions opening just before the end of autumn term, the cast, crew and band rehearse through spring term in preparation for the society's greatest annual spectacle. Taking place in late Spring, this 'full scale' musical production is the highlight of the year for MTSoc, and for ICL's social calendar.
"The 24" is wrapped in secrecy. Up until 7pm the night before the show opens, no-one knows what the show is going to be. No title, roles, songs, scripts or costumes are given away. The cast, crew and band then have only 24 hours to produce an entire musical production. It is an intense labour of love that never fails to astound the audience, and is not for the faint hearted. #noclues
The October Show is a small-scale production hosted by members from the previous year to entertain incoming Freshers and give them a taste of what we can do. The show is part of a double bill where MTSoc collaborates with DramSoc (ICU's Drama Society), and is the perfect time for newcomers to get to know each other and the society's existing members.
Having kicked butt last year as MTSoc's Secretary, Roshani begins the third year of her Mathematics degree as our shiny new President. "My life is essentially musical theatre, Techtonics, and a little bit of maths on the side." *cue jazz hands*
Having toured extensively with the Jackson 5 during the 1960s, ABC became president of a capella group the Techtonics in 2015. This year, however, lured by the sounds of musical theatre, he has radically changed his career path and shall enlighten all as vice president of MTSoc.
George is a second year Chemical Engineer still struggling to strike a balance between his full-time degree and his full-time drinking schedule. With a strong love for musicals and spreadsheets, he is super excited to be your Treasurer this year.
Emma is a 4th year geophysicist and MTSoc's very own queen of emails. All your formatting desires will be fulfilled by her excessive italics and bold font #soz4spam
Olivia has amalgamated her love for MTSoc with her flair in procrastinating working on her degree by playing on MS Paint. Keep in mind, next time your news feed is flooded with Musical Theatre publicity spam, that it means she's doing her job. If that spam has a half-decent font, she is practically excelling.
Fergus is a second year Biologist and first year responsible human. Fergus is still (and hopefully will always be) in fun fresher-mode, so be prepared for some crazy MTsocials this year, he can't wait.
Weertsmaster (noun (fem) - dutch) -
One with abilities in web dev, Artificial Intelligence and cycling in heels. Characterised by a tendency to procrastinate her PhD by indulging in MTSoc performances.
