Welcome to SMTS, your new Theatre Family!
Whether you are a veteran of the stage, or you are just beginning to find your voice - you always have a place at SMTS. In this society we celebrate creativity, diversity and imagination - all through the medium of Musical Theatre. Our members hale from all across Glasgow and beyond, with some even joining us from other colleges and universities. We are one of only a few armature dramatics societies to feature an Open Chorus Policy, whereby, all members are given the opportunity to perform in our chorus regardless of the outcome of any soloist auditions they may choose to undertake. We also work in close partnership with the SMTS Pit Band Collective, an instrumental ensemble of up to 16 highly skilled student/Glasgow based musicians who accompany us during performances.
In addition, we also offer plenty of opportunities Behind the Scenes. If you are an aspiring Director, Choreographer, Stage Manager, Composer/Arranger, Props Master, Costume Designer etc. then we will most definitely support you to reach that ambition.
If you are looking for a safe space to geek-out about Musical Theatre, belt out showtunes, and laugh harder than you ever have before – sign up today! We rehearse on Mondays & Tuesdays on the Strathclyde University Campus.
Every year, we as a society, emerge even stronger and with greater determination to make the upcoming academic year more memorable than ever. We intend to maximise and facilitate as many safe in-person performance opportunities as possible, and we have few in the works already...
This Semester, we will be working towards a chairty night. We will be performing many songs from musicals in a cabaret style. We will have a mixture of soloists, small group songs and numbers involving our whole ensemble. As always there will be lots of behind the scenes work too with our PT so there are plenty of opportunities for anyone who wants to be invlolved.
Rehearals for the Charity night will primarily be held on Monday nights in GH902 for our ensemble numbers and Tuesdays in RC426 for the soloist numbers.
This event will be dedicated to raising funds for Beatson Cancer Charity, an organisation close to many of our hearts and we are so excited to be working with them!
This Semester we will work towards performing "The Addams Family". We are so excited to be performing this comedy muscial with our members and look forward to watching it come together!
The Musical will consist of 4 performances (3 evenings and 1 matinee) at the beginning of June 2023, by which point the University’s formal assessment period will have concluded, thus, avoiding scheduling conflicts with exams.
We will be performing in the Brian Cox Studio in the Merchant city on the week commencing June 5th and will announce further dates, performance details and more on our social pages so keep an eye out for announcements!
If you have any questions please contact one of our Board members either through our social media pages or via email and we will be happy to respond!
