Meet the Society Chair | MPS!

Joining YSJ in September and not sure which Society is for you? Well our students are here to tell you why they think you should join their Society for this academic year!

 

Next up is Josh Clark – Chair of Musical Production Society!

 

Society: Musical Production Society (MPS)

Name: Josh Clark

Course: Christian Theology

Year of Study: Second Year

 

Why did you join Musical Production Society?

I've always loved Musical Theatre so I jumped at the opportunity to continue this at university.

 

What has your Musical Production Society got in store for this year?

MPS will be doing a showcase in the first semester which will contain a couple of songs from several different musicals. Then in the second semester we put on a full blown musical production at the Joseph Rowntree Theatre.

 

Why should students join your Musical Production Society?

MPS is the perfect place to make new friends as we are a very inclusive society. Furthermore, the show we are putting on this year is bigger than anything we have ever done before so now is the perfect time to join up!

 

Best memory from being a member of Musical Production Society?

The highlight of my time in MPS so far has to be the opening night of last year’s musical 'Legally Blonde'. To see a production that we had all worked so hard on, and that the committee had put so much time and effort into, come to life on stage was a special moment that I won't forget.

 

If you had to join another Club / Society which would you choose?

I'm already a member of the Geek Society, so I'd have to pick them. They are an excellent group of people and if you like anything even remotely nerdy/geeky you are sure to find a likeminded person among them.

 

3 Things First Years Should Bring to University?

  1. Something to keep you entertained in your downtime e.g. Games console or musical instrument
  2. A meal that you can cook and that you like (trust me, pasta gets boring eventually)
  3. Any extra books on your subject that you can find and understand (Having a wide range of good sources will set you apart from other students)

Top tip for First Years coming to study at York St John University?

Enjoy yourself, use your first year as a big learning experience, not only academically but personally too. Try new things and join new clubs and you're sure to find something that you'll enjoy and you'll make some great new friends along the way.
