We work all year round to stage full-scale performances, concerts, showcases, workshops, theatre trips and of course many socials!
We feature 2 auditioned productions in both Term 1 and Term 2. Each term features one Main Term Production, which in the past has included musicals both contemporary and classic such as Cabaret, RENT and The Addams Family Musical. These are performed in November and March every year. Alongside our Main Term Production in Term 1 is our brand new for 2019 MTS Mini Production, giving a platform for a smaller-cast and perhaps lesser-well known show. In Term 2 we hold ‘Variations’ - the original first-year musical which in previous years has included Bake Off the Musical, Love Island the Musical, The Hunger Games: The Musical and Not Another High School Musical. This is the opportunity for our freshers to show us what they can do!
2019/20 marks the second year of our Lights Up Series, which is a series of non-auditioned showcases for people to show off their skills be it dancing, singing or acting. These will be every term, and a great opportunity for our members to practice in front of an audience. We are also super excited for the second year of our Behind The Curtain Workshops, which this year will cover all sorts of areas of theatre, including workshops on vocal technique and set construction, as well as masterclasses from industry professionals!
We also host a range of Socials each year, including Theatre Trips, Toast Nights, Movie Nights, Come In Your Socs SU Nights, Picnics, Karaoke Nights and more!
This year MTS will be supporting The Orpheus Centre as our Charity of the Year - a Surrey-based charity that uses the performing arts to empower young adults with disabilities by developing communication, social interaction and other independence skills. Throughout the year we will be raising awareness and money for the charity through events and campaigns as well as through our productions.
PLUS... more performance opportunities to be announced!
