UNSW Musical Theatre Society

The Musical Theatre Society (MTS) is a student-run society affiliated with Arc@UNSW within the University of New South Wales. It is dedicated to producing a number of musicals each year, attending numerous productions both within and outside the university and holding events for lovers of musicals to gather and appreciate theatre. It is the only society at the University of New South Wales solely dedicated to musical theatre.

Do you hear the people sing, and need to sing along? UNSW Musical Theatre Society is a group dedicated to a love of musical theatre! Why? Because we can-can-can! We produce fantastic musicals each year, and hold heaps of other fun social events. If you are interested in performing, producing, directing, or playing in a band - don’t throw away your shot! Seize the day and join our society! If the limelight isn't really your thing, we’re always on the look out for creatives to help behind the scenes with costume design, graphics, set, props, sound/lighting design, publicity, and heaps more. We love to see our family grow so whether you’re a beginner or a well-seasoned professional, a performer or a theatre fan, or anywhere in between, we’d love to have you on board - it only takes a taste! 

Don’t lose your head, but if we aren’t putting on our own productions, you can find us attending other society’s shows, professional productions, singing karaoke, or just bonding over our love of musicals! Being a member of MTS not only comes with amazing new friends, we are able to access discounted tickets to other university productions and see loads of new musicals together. All theatre lovers are welcome - non-UNSW and UNSW students alike are encouraged to participate in productions and be a part of our theatre family!

It’s all happening at MTS, no matter your skill level, we love to see new faces, we promise uni will be so much better with MTS! So it’s time to trust your instincts, close your eyes, and leap!

MTS respectfully acknowledges the Bedegal people who are the Traditional Custodians of the land on which we meet, rehearse and create. We show our respects to Elders both past and present and extend that respect to other Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people. 

As we gather on stolen land, we acknowledge that storytelling, creativity and performance have been integral parts of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander cultures for time immemorial. We acknowledge that theatre stands as a meeting place for sharing stories, fostering dialogue and embracing diversity that enriches our society.
