20 years after the formation of the society, Bath University Student Musicals Society has decided that a journey through time would be a fitting nod to their history. This exciting review show, with songs set from 2500 BC all the way through to modern day, is bursting with the spirit of smash hit musicals old and new so it is sure to be one for the history books.
WHO: Bath University Student Musicals Society (BUSMS),
WHAT: Musicals Through The Ages featuring music from many smash hit musicals.
WHEN: Friday 13th and Saturday the 14th of November, doors open at 7pm.
WHERE: The Edge Theatre, Bath University.
Musicals Through The Ages is all about showcasing what Bath University Student Musical Society is all about and introducing some of the fantastic talent that came with this year’s new student intake in what is now the society’s 20th year! The show takes you on a journey though time with songs taken from musicals set throughout history starting out in the pages of the old testament and advancing forward in time with songs from smash hit musicals Jesus Christ Superstar, Les Misérables, Hairspray, Miss Saigon, Catch Me If You Can and Rent to name but a few.
The variety of what’s on show gives something for everyone. “The best thing about Musicals Through The Ages is there was no limit to what we could choose,” says director George Kendrick in his directing debut. This comes across in leaps and bounds with some truly ambitious songs being performed with the huge amount of talent available to the production team this year which is all building to create a fantastic show, “there truly is something for everyone.”
The musical will take place in the Edge Theatre, the newly developed and fully accessible arts facility on the University of Bath campus. With support coming from other societies across the university and even from local Somerset businesses, the show is truly a local production end to end. The production is a great introduction to musical theatre as well as an engaging revue show for the theatre nerds among us. Regardless of your background or when you started your musical journey, the directors are certain that you will be caught up in this musical time travel adventure!
