We are delighted to announce that our 2019 Inaugural Show will be Sondheim’s 'Company'!
Originally titled Threes, its plot revolves around Robert (a single man unable to commit fully to a steady relationship, let alone marriage), the five married couples who are his best friends, and his three girlfriends. Unlike most book musicals, which follow a clearly delineated plot, Company is a concept musical composed of short vignettes, presented in no particular chronological order, linked by a celebration for Robert's 35th birthday.
It is going to be an electric show, and the top class production team who will be bringing it to life is as follows:
Producer: Marco McVey
Directors: Cian Gallagher and Colin Gilligan
Musical Director/Vocal Director: Róisín Heenan
Choreographer: Niamh McGowan
Company will be taking place from Tuesday 24th to Friday 27th September! We're so excited about this one and hope you are too!
We are extremely excited to announce that The 10th Session of UCD Musical Society's Inaugural Show will be ‘The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee’!
This hilarious musical comedy follows six quirky adolescents as they all compete to be crowned as the spelling champion! Each character is equally eager to win for their own individual reasons, which are revealed gradually throughout the show. Fast paced, vibrant, and even featuring audience participation, we are so delighted to be bringing this witty show to life!
With that, the amazing production team for our Inaugural Show is as follows:
It’s time to #GetBuzzed - 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee will be running from 25th to 27th September and it will most definitely be one not to miss!!

Our Performing Arts Ball in October last year was a huge success and we are already so excited to do it all over again this year!
We were delighted to welcome Irish Musical Theatre sensation, Rebecca Storm, to UCD last October. She gave an open masterclass to ten of our lucky members, and we loved meeting her!
