Worcester Students' Union Society of the Year - 2019/2020
Gold Standard Society - 2019/2020
Loco Show Co. is an award winning Musical Theatre Society delivers a wealth of opportunities for students. We welcome members of all abilities and backgrounds, whether you're used to used to being on stage or off, Loco provides you with the opportunity to grow and thrive. We also offer the chance for those who are not interested in performing, to simply be a part of our tight-knit Loco family by being a social member!
Not only do we give the opportunity to be in a talented cast, we also have our very own Loco Show Co. Band, which performs all the music for all of our productions and events. So, if you are a musician, come and join us, everybody is invited to be part of our band!
Each academic year we hold two productions. At the end of the first semester, we perform a show, often a pantomime which is produced by our very own Production Team, and at the end of the second semester, we stage a second performance, often a musical. Some of our previous shows include:
Over the year, Loco has collected many awards and this year was no exception as we won Society of the Year, along with Society Promoter of the Year. We were also nominated for Most Charitable Society and Committee Member of the Year (Martha Heasman). Along with these, Tramps recognised us as their Society of the Month in March, as well as nominating us in April.
As part of Loco Show Co. and #TeamWorc, we strive to make Loco Show Co. an inclusive environment to all who participate. We welcome all levels of abilities to join Loco Show Co. and we are allies to a wide array of communities. Our Social Media platforms are used to promote and educate others on inclusivity of others within Theatre. We also strive for our Social Media platforms to be inclusive to all, by adding photograph descriptions and captions to videos. As a society, we are always welcome to ideas on how we can be more inclusive, and we are willing to be educated on topics which we may not fully understand. Our Social Media also promotes inclusivity by having statements from our Alumni, who may have faced barriers to participation and why they have felt Loco Show Co. was a safe space for them. We have ran yearly events with the LGBT+ network and hope to continue to work with the network. We are incredibly proud of ALL of our members and their achievements!
The Social Experience
Alongside our productions, we also provide weekly socials and events for members to engage with. Every Wednesday is social night, where we head to the local nightclub, with our weekly themes. We also offer sober socials which include games nights, cinema nights, movie nights, cinema trips and theatre trips. We also have a Loco tradition of heading to karaoke night at the Hangar, the Student's Union bar, on a Friday after rehearsals!
We also often organise or participate in charity events things including Scarefest, the Community Tea Dance and the University Carol Concert at Worcester Cathedral, occassionally collaborating with other societies! 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!
