The ArtSci Musical is an annual production created by Arts & Science students! The script (written by ArtScis over the summer) makes use of many different genres of music to explore a topic generally related to the Arts and Science experience. No theatrical experience is required to be a part of this production. Being a member of the ArtSci musical is a year-long commitment, with rehearsals running from late September to mid-March.
