Who We Are
We are Muir Musical, a student organization devoted to producing full-scale Broadway shows each spring. Our performances are completely student-produced and student-directed, making Muir Musical the only theatre company of its kind on the UC San Diego campus. Muir Musical is also the only musical theatre opportunity for students at UC San Diego, providing a vital creative outlet for theatre and non-theatre majors alike.
This year, Muir Musical is producing six shows of Spring Awakening, a rock musical about a group of teenagers navigating the turbulent landscape of adolescent sexuality in late 19th-century Germany. Written by Duncan Sheik and Steven Sater, Spring Awakening addresses complicated topics such as sex education, sexual consent and exploration, abuse, mental health, LGBT self-discovery, and reproductive rights. It also engages the audience in a thoughtful, earnest dialogue about the effects of misinformation and lack of resources.
We’re devoted to providing numerous learning and leadership opportunities on campus. Be it in Finance, Design, or Stage Management, Muir Musical has a place for everyone! We’re also currently coordinating with Counseling and Psychological Services, the LGBT Resource Center, and the Sexual Assault Resource Center to educate our company and audience. In doing so, we aim to promote on-campus resources and raise awareness among the student body. Through our Department of Education and Outreach, we connect with high schools in the San Diego area to encourage retention in higher education as well.
