24 auditions are open!

"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

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 Footloose, Legally Blonde, In The Heights, RENT, Sweeney Todd and The Rocky Horror Show. 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.

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

Manuel Pestana Gageiro
President

Manuel is a 4th year Theoretical Physicist who likes Piña Coladas and getting caught in the rain. After spending the last year stuck in zoom meetings, Manuel is keener than ever to selectively forget about his Physics responsibilities and breath in MTSoc 24/7. In the wild year ahead, you might know him as that dude who keeps shouting at spreadsheets, humming Disney tunes in between rehearsals, or preaching the Starkid good word around campus. He literally cannot wait to meet everyone this year IN PERSON (what a concept) and hopes you have a truly memorable time with the best society on campus ;)

Harrison Goldspink
Vice president

STILL getting Litty™?

Finn
Corney
Treasurer

Finn got the role of treasurer because he studies maths, and for that reason alone. Be sure to find him fuelling his "mild" alcoholism at the union whilst not being nearly stressed enough about being on 3 committees and forgetting to do any work for his course because he "accidentally" joined yet another society

Nathalie Tedfors Lindell
Secretary

Nathalie is a 2nd year Biological Sciences student who got into the society entirely over ~zoom~ and made a name for herself as The Chaotic One (feel free to ask her about the Ratatouille video). But don’t be fooled by this reputation, she’ll still spend a copious amount of time on creating highly aesthetically pleasing Excel sheets.


Jack
Bartlett
Publicity Officer

Daddy now, I am.


Nicole Obretincheva
Webmaster

Nicole is a 3rd 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...


Daria
Ditri
Equipment Manager

This is Daria. She’s very excited to be on committee after a rollercoaster 2 years of MTSoc (Best Revue Ever ™?, RIP About Last Night :( ) You might see her on stage dressed as Snow White, doing the splits, or engaging in unsolicited PDA with a certain TT. She will do her best to look after all the stuff.
