Musical Theatre Society (SMuTS)

Welcome to the Sussex Musical Theatre Society!

SMuTS is a musical theatre-focused community which endeavours to encourage, support, and showcase its members.


Founded in 1991, SMuTS have since performed fantastic shows including Fame, Guys and Dolls, RENT, Spring Awakening, Little Shop of Horrors, Sweeney Todd, Cabaret, West Side Story, Jekyll & Hyde and Legally Blonde (pictured above).

...and this year, we are incredibly excited to announce that our 2020 musical will be Chicago!



SMuTS has previously had sellout crowds at the Attenborough Centre so to avoid missing out on seeing some of Brighton's best and brightest musical theatre talent, make sure to grab tickets as soon as possible! Seating is unreserved, so turn up early to choose your favourite seat.

But the shows aren't everything we do - there are so many more opportunities for you to get involved with SMuTS!




We arrange Cabaret/Open Mic performances throughout the year to help fundraise for our (very expensive...) shows, and they are open to anyone who wants to showcase their talents!



We also hold loads of socials to meet people from all over the University and hang out with each other, such as parties, pub crawls, theatre trips, film screenings, quizzes, and much more. Anyone and everyone is more than welcome to join, whether you're a mature student, post-graduate, undergraduate, non-student, past-member, whatever!



We hold many more events with the aim to help our members improve their musical theatre skills and enjoy performing! These involve workshops, masterclasses with special guests, and guidance sessions in collaboration with the university. We hope this all sounds exciting to you, and can't wait to see you at one of our upcoming events!


Most of our members go away saying that joining this society is the best decision they made at Sussex, which is due to the wonderful people they meet and experiences they gain while part of it. We hope you’ll take their advice and join us!




Want to help support SMuTS? Follow us on Twitter and Instagram, like us on Facebook and subscribe to our YouTube channel. And of course, don't forget come along to our shows!

SMuTS practices a safe space and zero tolerance policy. This means that in meetings and rehearsals, our members can feel safe and supported, with no fear of discrimination. Zero tolerance means that if people breach this understanding, we will not stand for it. It is the collective responsibility of all to uphold good conduct and challenge others’ unacceptable conduct.
