Each year, a group of ambitious engineering students gets together to put on a singing and dancing extravaganza. Complete with a full band and our unique interpretations of popular songs, the musical is an annual tradition in McMaster Engineering.
Beginning in September, auditions are held and a cast is chosen. Week by week, the show is put together with students running the whole thing, from writing songs, to creating the script, building sets and playing music. And they have a great time while doing it.
The show is performed in a three day run each year; a Thursday, Friday, and Saturday run in mid-March. We look forward to seeing you then!
Based on the Broadway musical Into the Woods, in this year’s McMaster Engineering Musical we follow the story of 5 groups of Engineering students whose lives twist and tangle in the most mysterious place at McMaster: The Arts Quad. Baxter and Emily are trying to get into their capstone course after being put on academic probation by Dr. Bella Donna, an Engineering professor who dreams of joining the faculty of Health Sciences and finally being recognized. Baxter and Emily must enter the stories of Ruby a bright-eyed first year engineering student, Cindy a new transfer student trying to fit in, Jackson an engineering student who has failed first year four times in a row, and Dr. Bella Donna’s research assistant, Marigold. Through a night of song and dance, the fates of these eccentric characters will be determined and they may find out that happily ever afters don’t always last for forever.
