The Old Scotch Music and Drama Club, now simply known as OSMaD, had its beginnings in the Old Scotch Music Club formed in October 2005. Scotch College has an association with Music and Drama which now stretches over 100 years and a warranted reputation for excellence.
Timed to coincide with the completion of the James Forbes Academy, the inception of the OSMC was designed to provide an avenue to allow Old Boys to continue their involvement in music.
Renamed OSMaD to incorporate drama, OSMaD has grown to be a respected musical theatre company in the amateur musical theatre community in Melbourne, giving many opportunities for theatre development and craft to the Old Boys and wider community.
OSMaD celebrated it’s 10 year anniversary by selling out their award winning production of Les Miserables and followed that up with their award winning 2019 production of Miss Saigon.
A full list of their production can be found on their website.
Auditions are held each year around May/June – please check the website.
Every year OSMaD produces a musical in October and also runs a Masterclass program to share skills and insights into theatre.
Please check the website for details of the current production including auditions, volunteer opportunities and tickets.
OSMaD draws wide participation from across Melbourne amongst those interested in music, theatre performance and production.
OSMaD is not restricted to the Scotch community. All are welcome.
The 2020 production is postponed and the club is looking at other ways to stay connecting with its audience during 2020.
The Masterclass series will continue – please connect to the OSMaD website for details
