Revue style shows, performed in dB?s, are becoming an annual event for MTSoc and their success and popularity has been building steadily over the past few years.
You Can?t Stop the Beat is a toe-tapping, all-singing, all-dancing journey through the organised chaos of a typical office Christmas party. Over 20 musical numbers are crammed into an hour-long show that soon transports the audience, with the help of Jack, the Pumpkin King, from the comfort of the modern office to an altogether more sinister land. Of course the twists in the plot that link the whole show together are underpinned by a classic Christmas love story.
The show combines the hilarious absurdity of musical numbers from South Park the Movie, Jerry Springer the Opera and Avenue Q with unparalleled classic anthems taken from Moulin Rouge. Of course, there?s some of The Nightmare Before Christmas thrown in for good measure.
The entire show is doubtless offensive and highly inappropriate: certainly not one to drag your parents along to, but well worth spending an hour of your life watching. In return for an entrance fee of only zero pounds, audiences will be rewarded with the first-rate flair and professionalism that MTSoc habitually demonstrate. Amongst the cast several familiar faces appear along side new talent sourced from the society?s recent intake of freshers. Their individual styles combine seamlessly to produce a show that should mark the start of a great year for this company.
You Can?t Stop the Beat, directed by David Phipps-Davis, will be performed in dB?s this Sunday and Monday, 28th and 29th November at 7.30pm. Admission is free.
