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

CAN'T HELP TAPPING YOUR FEET WHEN YOU HEAR A BEAT? FAMILIAR WITH HEARING 'DON'T BE SO DRAMATIC'? SHOULD YOUR SHOWER BALLADS WIN AWARDS?

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.

Shows

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.

October show

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.

Mid-term Cabarets

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).

Committee

Niamh McAuley
President

Niamh is a 3rd year Biologist who decided to spice up the final year of her #NotARealDegree by becoming MTSoc President! She can't wait to continue dedicating her free time, lecture time, revision time, and nap time to the society, whether in-person or on Zoom.

Daniel Foran
Vice president

Supposedly this is Daniel's last year at Imperial, however, these famous last words have proven false for many an MTSoc alumnus, so he's not making any foolish assumptions. Daniel will be attempting to put his old age and
?experience? to some sort of advisory use as the VP. 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?

Ella Reich
Treasurer

Ella is a fourth year Biomedical Engineering student who was a little late to the game when it came to joining MTSoc. She only joined last year but she surely doesn’t regret her decision. Wanting to make the most out of it, she is thrilled to be taking on the role of Treasurer this year.

Celine Driessen
Secretary

Celine is a second-year Biological Sciences student who is delighted to have a reason to devote even more of her time to MTSoc this year by joining committee. Expect to see her making more schedules than anyone could possibly ever need/follow, or listening to her current favourite cast album.

Nicole Obretincheva
Webmaster

Nicole is a 2nd year Computing student who was just looking for an excuse to spend even more time with her favourite society. You want to stay on her good side as she is the main baked goods provider for MTSoc - if she stress-bakes, she will defo bring some cookies to the next rehearsal. And she is stressed 95% of the time...

Ellie Morgan
Equipment Manager

Meet Ellie. After last year’s whirlwind of choreographing Spring Show, directing 3 numbers in Revue, and also being one half of a Social Secretary, she decided to step back from MT responsibilities. So in true MT fashion, she’s back for more as your equipment officer! She can’t wait to get involved this year and show you all how overcommitting is both the best and worst decision she ever made.

Shanil
Panara
Publicity Officer

Meet Shanil (a.k.a. S Monkey).
3 years of studying Materials has not stopped him from following his publicity passions! And now for the first time dabbling in these fine arts - again - for MT, you can expect occasional rainbows, dad jokes and more... 😉

Tash
Cowan
Publicity Officer

Tash is an ex-synchronised swimmer who knows pi to 300 decimal places, eats 3 cucumbers a day, and is soon to release a folk album about a dead hamster. She will be utilising these skills in the role of publicity officer.

Daniella Gimbosh
Social Secretary

Daniella is a 2nd year Medical Biosciences student who is just trying to make her Slavic parents happy with a degree from Imperial. She also immediately decided to fill as much of her already non-existent free time with various MTSoc and dancing activities. However, her love (obsession) of organisation, spreadsheets and wholesome/dance-filled events makes her the perfect second half of the Social Sec duo. She also doesn't drink, so the total drink number of the two Social Secs still seems within the capability of the human liver.

Harrison Goldspink
Social Secretary
