24 auditions are open!

"The 24" is wrapped in secrecy. Up until Friday the 26th of June, 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 #massconfusion


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 In The Heights, RENT, 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

Freshers Revue

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.

Spring Show

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.

24 hour musical

"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 #massconfusion

Studio show

Our spring term Studio Show is a small-scale production designed to showcase the talents of society members alongside Spring Show. Created in 2018 to accommodate a rapidly growing society, the show is flexible and experimental in its contents and style. It’s a great opportunity for directors to bring unconventional ideas to life and for performers to create brand new roles onstage.

Mid-term Cabarets

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.

October show

Our mid-term cabarets are the perfect excuse to get away from college and enjoy an evening of musical theatre sung by fabulous members of our society. Every term we leave Imperial (if only) to a nearby pub to celebrate the society's talents over a pint (or five).

Daniel Foran

After 4 long years at Imperial, Daniel is... still here #medic. Given that 5th year medicine wasn't hard enough, taking on the MTSoc presidency seemed an appropriate challenge to supplement his studies. Daniel can't wait to see how not attending his course will benefit the society this year! As a medic and musical theatre double agent, you might catch Daniel dabbling over in the light opera society, but can you blame a boy for wanting to do the Imperial College full-time musical theatre degree?

Nadya Mere
Vice president

Nadya is in her 4th year in MTSoc and 3rd year on this committee, which means she’s basically an OAP who mostly goes around saying “Remember back in 2016...?” This is essentially the entire job of the VP, so it's quite well-suited. She actually graduated, but couldn't help doing an MSc at Imperial to stay another year. Who knows, maybe she might even end up doing a PhD and you'll never be able to get rid of her.

Valerie Lau

Like a lot of uni students, Valerie is barely studying her degree, hardly gets enough sleep, and all in all feeling quite lost on this little journey called life. Musical theatre is the only thing keeping her sane. Expect Valerie to provide spiritual support, text back ASAP, help you with your makeup, and ask you for VAT receipts.

Ben Clay

Ben is a 3rd year Mechanical Engineer, and a complete novice when it comes to being in committee, or responsibility in general. He enjoys running, has occasionally drunk coffee, and spends too much of his time railing against banal clichés.

Chris Koray-Araz
Publicity Manager

While struggling through chemeneg second year, Chris is thrilled to be back at MTSOC with new responsibilities which mostly consists of begging the members for their bios and their headshots. You can find him trying to perfect that one singular sensational tap routine from 42nd Street (or basically any show that has tap in it), making puns from obscure musicals, or binge watching every Mean Girls bootlegs there ever was.

Ellie Morgan
Social Secretary

So why is Ellie the superior social sec? Well, she entered MTSoc with a bang - engaging in embarrassing drunken antics at her very first social; so she’s looking forward to encouraging the same behaviour in all of you. But don’t let that fool you - she’s extremely up for equally embarrassing antics even in a wholesome setting. Be careful - you’re never safe!

Lucy Chandler
Social Secretary

Of the two social secretaries for this year, Lucy is the superior. Reasons? She has a functioning hip, and an iota of common sense. But don’t let this fool you - she is a proud encourager of both drunken antics and sober shenanigans. In the hands of Lucy, you can expect socials to be both wholesome and utterly meme-worthy.

India Marsden

India is a third year Mathematics and Computer Science student who is pretending her love for musical theatre isn’t procrastination by making it part of her degree and becoming their webmaster. She also dabbles in producing shows so expect to find her muttering about profit margins and ticket sales when a show is coming up.
