MUGSS is Manchester's premiere student opera society, winning 5 awards at the International Gilbert and Sullivan Festival in 2013. This year we'll be returning to the Manchester Grammar School with our performance of Ruddygore!

If you'd like to perform with us, our rehearsals are held every Wednesday (check our Facebook page for locations and timings). If being on stage isn't your dream, then why not join our crew? We create all our own props, costumes and scenery every year, and our set-pieces have previously included a steam train, a working 10-foot roulette wheel, an on-stage river and a giant fibreglass tree! The crew meets on Wednesdays and Saturdays in our workshop on the University of Manchester's North Campus.

We're also an extremely active social society, with a trip to a pub or bar after every rehearsal or crew session, and several parties throughout the year.

If you're interested in getting involved, join our Facebook group or email our committee.
