Welcome to the Northumbria Musical Theatre Society website.
First of all, thank you for visiting our website and showing interest in our society! We hope you’ll read up on what we are all about and hopefully it will interest you to come and join our family!
Northumbria Musical Theatre Society was founded in 2008 and therefore is celebrating its 13th year as a student ran society!. Previously, we have performed shows such as; High School Musical, Bare, Rent, Sweeney Todd, Spring Awakening, The Addams Family and Into The Woods. Our 2020 show would have been Fame! But this was unfortunately cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic, and as a result also we were not able to put on a full production for 2021. We also have performed many galas, featuring songs from the earliest musicals such as My Fair Lady and Chitty Chitty Bang Bang, through favourites such as Les Miserables and Hairspray, right up to recent hits such as Hamilton, Matilda, Dear Evan Hansen and Be More Chill.
Some of our most recent achievements include:
- 2021 – Best Online Presence (Won), Society Recognition (Bronze)
- 2020 – Member Of The Year (Won), Secretary Of The Year (Won), Society Recognition (Gold), Best Event (Nominated), Committee Of The Year (Nominated), Treasurer Of The Year (Nominated), Unsung Hero Of The Year (2x Nominated)
- 2019 – President Of The Year (Won), Society Recognition (Gold)
This year we hope to continue on the success of the last few years and also push beyond that! Last year, despite the COVID-19 pandemic we were still able to run a lot of online activities for the members such as quizzes, film nights, and also outdoor meets when allowed! In May 2021, we were able to host one of the first live shows back in the Students’ Union, for our Bring On Tomorrow Fundraiser which for many members was their first in-person live performance in nearly 18 months!
This year we also launched our very own website with links to our social media, past performances, links to upcoming events and tickets as well as a blog page which can be used by any member to share their thoughts, opinions and love for all things MUSICAL THEATRE!
Musical Theatre Society is a sociable and inclusive society which we pride ourselves on! As well as the performances, we also have a huge social side! We have something for everyone, from film nights, theatre trips and group meals, to themed and non-themed nights out across the city, we are sure you will find something to do with us!
We are a super friendly group of people. Everyone who is part of our family has a love of putting on some amazing performances as well as smiling and laughing the whole way along! We pride ourselves on how welcoming we are and how we make each individual feel a part of a society and work on the things they want to work on. Whether you are wanting to improve a song, try and learn more about musicals or simply make friends and feel part of a group we can offer all of that for you!
You can sign up to be a member of Musical Theatre on this page, or visit the desk on the ground floor of the SU! Memberships for both Northumbria students and Associates are currently £6 and runs until the 31st of July each year so you can join now!
