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.

In apartheid South Africa, Sophiatown finds its very existence threatened when the Government decides to racially and geographically segregate the population. An evocative piece of political-musical theatre, Sophiatown is a history lesson that won't be easily forgotten.

The sexy, sultry, side-splittingly hilarious show that brings you Big Spender, If My Friends Could See Me Now and The Rhythm of Life. We follow the lovable Charity Valentine in her pursuit for true love in 1960s New York City.
