Actors are the glue that binds the whole show together – without them, there would be no show. If you want to get the most of the MedShow experience, make incredibly close friends, and challenge yourself to things you never believed you could or would do, then acting is for you.
Stop wasting your talents in the bathroom shower! The music directors are looking for medical students who are up for the challenge of singing in front of their friends, family and lecturers. Even if you’re not the next Australian Idol, we still want you.
Calling everyone who wants to have a barrel of fun! If you can walk, you can dance! Each year the choreographers create and teach multiple original routines to be performed in the show. It doesn’t matter if you don’t know how, as all skill levels are welcome, and you’ll get all the instruction you need. Dancers can also sing and act – in fact, we’d love it if you want to do more!
