The main show is our big extravaganza, often held in February. Months of production go into the show. The dances are big, the music is bold and the set-pieces are thrilling. In previous years, the main shows have included Guys and Dolls, All Shook Upand Jekyll and Hyde, amongst numerous others! The main show is aimed to cater to everyone – actors, singers and dancers, and this year will be Urinetown, the Musical!
Each year, the elected committee holds an open conference to choose the next show the society will produce. All members of the society are encouraged to come along to join the discussion, and it soon becomes an interesting process, where the various musical tastes and talents the society has can come to light. Both the main show and the weekend show are chosen during this time.
