MedShow is an annual theatrical production in October staged by the UNSW Medical Society that showcases our many talents with original scripts, musical scores and choreography. Now in its 15th year of successful production, MedShow has become one of the most anticipated social events of the university calendar.

There has been consistent audience demand resulting in the selling out of the 945-seated Clancy Auditorium in recent years, and expansion to three full nights at the university’s Science Theatre, with audiences of 1500 each year.

MedShow is unique as it is wholly directed, produced, written and delivered by medical students, thus offering the rich potential to grab the attention of the medical student body as well as other wider university faculties.

Each year we donate all proceeds in support of a selected charity, and this year we are proudly supporting the The Pyjama Foundation. Find out more about them here.
