Welcome to ICSM Light Opera, home of Imperial students with a love of all things musical theatre, whether that’s set-building, costume-making, singing, dancing or anything in between!
During first term we produce our Main Show , a musical extravaganza learnt over seven weeks and performed over four nights. Previous productions include ‘Anything Goes’, ‘Crazy For You’ and ‘The Producers’. This year, we're performing ‘Dirty Rotten Scoundrels’!
During third term we produce our 24-Hour Opera: a musical planned in secret and revealed to the cast the day before the performance, so the whole show is prepped in 24 hours! Recent productions include ‘The Book of Mormon’, ‘Les Misérables’ and ‘Legally Blonde’, with all proceeds going to charity!
Light Opera is one of the most social societies within ICSM, organising at least two socials per week in first term. This, as well as the annual Opera Tour will make your first term anything but boring! And with events like our annual Opera Dinner during second term, our ‘Big Chills’ (open-mic nights at Reynolds bar) and ‘UH Revue’ (a sketch show competition between other London medical schools), the rest of your year won't be boring either!
The Light Opera family ranges from complete novices to those who were doing jazz hands in utero, with members spanning all years of ICSM, as well as many non-medic members and many members involved in other clubs and societies. For more information on getting involved, find us at Fresher’s Fair!
