Muir Musical 2018
Who We Are
We are Muir Musical, a student organization devoted to producing a full-scale Broadway show each spring for the past 27 years. 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 Jesus Christ Superstar. Jesus Christ Superstar is a rock opera written by Andrew Lloyd Webber, the man behind other hit musicals such as Phantom of the Opera, Evita, Sunset Boulevard, and Cats. It chronicles the final weeks of Jesus' life through the eyes of Judas Iscariot, the disciple notorious for betraying Jesus and hastening his death, detailing the personal and political struggles that embittered their relationship in the wake of the crucifixion.
We’re devoted to providing numerous learning and leadership opportunities on campus. As the only musical theatre organization on the UCSD campus, Muir Musical provides a place for students of all majors to collaborate and put on a beautiful production each year. Be it in Finance, Design, or Stage Management, Muir Musical has a place for everyone! 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.
