The Muir Musical Ensemble proudly announces its production for the 2016-2017 school year…Spring Awakening!
This rock musical, with music by Duncan Sheik and lyrics and book by Steven Sater, follows the lives of a group of teenagers in 19th-century Germany as they explore the thrills and woes of coming of age.
The Muir Musical is a UCSD student organization that produces one completely student-run musical theatre production annually. Students from all six UCSD colleges are invited to participate in a full-scale Broadway production that marks the single musical theatre opportunity for UCSD students all year long. The cast, crew, orchestra, and production staff of each Muir Musical production are comprised entirely of UCSD students, and we are always looking for new faces that are interested in being a part of any of these integral parts of our annual production.
The Muir Musical was launched in 1991 by a Muir sophomore, Orrin Webber, with a vision for this production to provide an outlet for students interested in musical theatre who were NOT necessarily theatre majors. Before graduating, Orrin directed the Muir Musical’s first three productions: Pippin, Into the Woods, and Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dream Coat. Except for one single-year hiatus, the Muir Musical has put on a full-scale Broadway musical production every year since its inception. It is the largest and only completely student directed and produced musical theatre event on campus.
There are many people involved in making such a production possible, ranging from those you see at the show to those found behind the scenes. Learn about who does what within the organization.
Our full scale theater production would not be possible without our amazing sponsors. Again – Thank you for helping us to continually entertain UCSD and the community!
Aside from the mission of promoting of theater and the arts, Muir Musical also acts as the great avenue to gain leadership, educational and organizational experience while fostering camaraderie among students. Learn more about how you can support the organization!
