The Loco Social Experience
Alongside our musical theatre productions, we also provide an active social itinerary. We have a designated social secretary to make sure your university experience lives up to your expectations. Every Wednesday is social night, where we not only go to the local nightclub kitted out in fancy dress that goes with our weekly themes, we have games nights, cinema nights, movie nights, cinema trips and a trip to the theatre each semester. We try to cater for what the members want, so if you have any other ideas let us know! We also have a Loco tradition of heading to karaoke night at the Hangar, the Student's Union bar, on a Friday after rehearsals! Some of our previous themes include; Disney, Dress to Impress cocktail night, Superheroes, Harry Potter, Halloween and many, many more!
We also organise an aftershow party for our members after each production and try and make our presence in the university community heard. We often organise or participate in things like LipSync battles, Scarefest and the university carol concert at Worcester Cathedral! There's never a dull moment as part of our Loco family!
So, whether you love to dance, love to sing, love to act, play, work backstage or help with anything creative, we'd love to have you join us!
This semesters show is the Wizard of Pantomime, written by our own alumni Alex Williams! The dates for the show are the 14th and 15th December and it would be great to see you there, as a cast member or as an audience member!!
