About Musical Society

We are Maynooth University Musical Society! Whether you have been performing onstage for years or you have never heard of musical theatre before, we have a place for you! Not all of our members sing and dance, we welcome members who want to be involved in every aspect of our productions both on and off the stage. 

We produce several musical theatre shows each year, ranging from competitive and full length musical productions, to shows that are just for fun!  We've performed full length musicals such as 'Grease', 'Rent', 'Spring Awakening', 'All Shook Up', 'Little Shop of Horrors', 'Jesus Christ Superstar' and 'Into The Woods'.

Our 2023 production of 'Into The Woods' earned us 2 national awards at the Association of Irish Musical Societies Awards (AIMS), those being Best Technical and 3rd Overall Best Show, as well as 3 additional nominations.

We also compete in the All-Ireland Musical Theatre Intervarsities against other universities in Ireland. In 2021, our film adaption of 'Everybody's Talking About Jamie' won 6 awards including Best Overall Show at the All-Ireland Musical Theatre Intervarsity Competitions. In 2022, our production of 'The Prom' gained us a further 4 awards including Best Musical Number and 2nd Best Overall Show. Our 2023 submission of ‘Legally Blonde’ obtained an impressive 5 awards including Spirit of Inters, 2nd Best Overall Show and 1st Best Performer. We are so proud to say that thanks to the extraordinary dedication and efforts from our production teams and casts alike, MUMS have managed to obtain the most awards out of all the university societies at Intervarsities for the past three years.

Maynooth University Musical Society is also honored to be an approved ensemble for music students within the university. As a result, music students can in fact earn academic credits for partaking in a sufficient number of Musical Society accredited workshops and/or productions throughout the year. Further and more precise details on this can be accessed through the Music Department.

Busy timetable? No need to commit to one of our productions, drop into one of our events anytime. We run weekly events such as open mics, team building, film nights, trips away (and abroad), special events and workshops open to everyone.  We cannot wait to welcome you to MUMS!!
