Curtain Call aims to bring Musical Theatre of the highest calibre to all Aberystwyth students
CC'S Inclusivity Statement:
'Curtain Call is a society committed to providing an inclusive and welcoming space for all of our members, irrespective of age, race, ethnicity, ability, culture or nationality, sexual orientation, gender identity and expression, religious affiliation, socioeconomic status and marital status. We as a society promise to provide a safe and accepting space for all our associates, by celebrating individuality, and rejecting discrimination of any kind.'
Curtain Call was founded in 2006 by a collection of Aberystwyth students striving to find a place to exercise their love for Musical Theatre.
Ever since, we have performed countless musicals, showcases, and events in a variety of venues. As part of Aberystwyth University Student Union’s Drama societies, Curtain Call strives to provide the opportunity for all students to perform and experience musicals from every angle, including seeing shows, performing full-scale musicals, and our infamous showcases. And of course socials every Tuesday!
To date Curtain Call has put on 25 full-scale musicals, all run, directed and performed by students at Aberystwyth University.
These musicals include; Godspell; Return to the Forbidden Planet; Little Shop of Horrors; Noises Off; tick tick BOOM; Seussical the Musical; The Full Monty; A Funny Thing Happened on the way to the Forum; RENT; Spring Awakening; 13; Our House; Wedding Singer; The Producers; Fame; How To Succeed In Business Without Really Trying; Bare; Thoroughly Modern Millie; The Drowsy Chaperone; 9 to 5; The Theory of Relativity; The Addams Family, Into the Woods, Guys and Dolls and began rehearsals for Big Fish before the COVID-19 shutdown.
The typical weekly rehearsals for our shows are: Weds 1.30-6, Friday 6-9, Sunday 12-7
We also run our showcases, our cabaret-style shows held 3 times a year, which give all our members a chance to showcase their talent singing anything within the musical theatre repertoire.
