Cambridge University Musical Theatre Society exists to enable high quality musical theatre to be staged in Cambridge and to allow its members opportunities to hone their skills, be it as a performer, musician, techie or production team member. Find out more about how we do this.
Throughout the year, CUMTS puts on a variety of performances, ranging from informal cabaret-style 'Bar Nights' to full blown stage musicals (check out our current shows here). For venues, we are a resident company at the ADC Theatre, but we are known to have used various other locations, including the Corpus Playroom, Cambridge Arts Theatre, Clare Cellars and the Cambridge Union.
CUMTS is headed by a committee of current students which oversees the day to day running of the society. Individual shows are managed by a production team appointed by the committee. Throughout the production, the committee is on hand to offer help and advice and to ensure the show runs smoothly.

[title of show] is a one-act musical, with music and lyrics by Jeff Bowen and a book by Hunter Bell. The show chronicles its own creation as an entry in the New York Musical Theatre Festival, and follows the struggles of the author and composer/lyricist and their two actress friends during the initial brief (three-week) creative period, along with subsequent events leading up to the show's production.
