Music Theatre Bristol is one of the largest performing arts societies and provides numerous opportunities to get involved as a performer or as part of the band/orchestra. This year we will be putting on regular cabaret nights as well as full length productions. In term one, we have a 48 hour musical project during week 2 and will also be putting on Showcase in week 5, which includes extracts from Billy Elliot, The Book of Mormon and High School Musical. MTB will be putting on their main show (tbc) in February 2018. This will require a full orchestra as well as a large cast so we would love you to get involved!
