PRESIDENT - Aisha Wheatley

Hey! I’m Aisha, a 4th year MMLLer at Fitz. I missed theatre so much on my year abroad, I vastly overcompensated and decided to become the CUMTS President! I can’t wait to welcome everyone back to the world of live theatre through our shows, bar nights and socials (and to see all your lovely faces). Drop me a line if there’s anything you want to know- I’ll try my very best to help you out and welcome you into the CUMTS family!

SECRETARY - Amber De Ruyt

Hi all! I’m Amber and I’m a third year Education, English and Drama student at Queens’! I’ve been involved with CUMTS both as a director and a producer, and I’m now so excited to be part of the committee that makes it all happen! As secretary, I’m hoping to become a friendly face to musical theatre kids new and old as well as making the society and the shows it creates more accessible than ever!

JUNIOR TREASURER - Chani Merrell

Hello!!! I’m Chani and I’m a third year at John’s studying Education, English, and Drama (very on brand, I know.) I am the treasurer for CUMTS this year, which basically just means I’ll be in charge of the (cue abba) money money moneyyy. On top of that I’m also a friendly face with experience in the performing and prod team world and I’m always up for a chat if you need absolutely anything- no question or niggling comment is too small! CUMTS has been the best thing about my time at Cambridge and I’m so excited to be able to on the committee, and contribute to some incredible theatre and memory making in Cambridge :))

MUSICIANS' REP - Georgia Rawlins

Hey everyone! My name is Georgia - I'm a fourth year Astrophysicist at John's and I'm your Musicians' Rep for this year! I can't wait to get the musical theatre scene back to its pre-c*vid glory and bring back MT with a bang. I'm an MD, composer, and (very) occasional singer, and new writing is one of my favourite things about the Cambridge MT scene. CUMTS has helped me so much by backing my work, so I am so excited to give back and see us go from strength to strength with incredible shows, writing, performances, and more! Don't hesitate to get in touch - I can't wait to see Cam Theatre come back to normality.

BAR NIGHT'S REP - Charlotte Dargan

Hey everyone! I’m Charlotte, a second year Geography student at Robinson and I am absolutely buzzing to be this years Bar Nights’ Rep! A CUMTS Bar Night is the perfect opportunity for musical theatre performers old and new to come along and belt out their favourite show tune. After a tragic 18-month hiatus, this year Bar Nights are back with a bang, and I can’t wait to see you all there!

TECHNICIAN'S REP - Jeremy Zolnai-Lucas

Hello everyone! I'm Jeremy - a third year Engineering student at Clare, and the technician's representative for CUMTS this year. I signed up to my first show on a whim and immediately fell in love with technical theatre. There's so much that goes into getting a show on stage from set to lights to sound that there is to get involved in, and I cannot recommend it enough! Musical theatre is great as it's always more fun working on an effects heavy show that you can sing along to backstage than a drama with one scene. Feel free to contact me about anything technical and musical theatre related at jaz27(at)cam.ac.uk!

SOCIAL AND WELFARE REP - Bolin Dai

Heyheyhey! I'm Bolin (she/her) and when I'm not in the theatre, I'm attempting (and failing) to stay on top of my degree as a 3rd year Medic at Newnham! CUMTS has played such a massive part in my life since coming to uni, and I really hope I can help all of you love it as much as I do. In an attempt to achieve this, I'll be organising socials and activities throughout the year (pls send me suggestions too! Cambridge can only tolerate so many Bob Ross painting parties) as well as being the welfare contact for all CUMTS members. Please feel free to speak to me me about anything at all, either via Facebook or email (bd420@cam.ac.uk). I'm always down for a chat and will do my absolute best to support you. (I also get 20% off at a certain Cambridge gelato shop and would love to talk over ice cream if that works best for you!)

PUBLICIST - Claire Lee Shenfield

Hey! I'm Claire, a third year English student at Medwards and I'm your CUMTS publicist! CUMTS shows have been some of the highlights of my time at Cambridge and I'm so excited to be publicising them and chatting to you all on social media. Please get in touch with any questions at all, particularly if they're about how The Last Five Years would be better without Jamie.
