Who are we?

ISM A Chorus Line Full Crew.jpg

Illini Student Musicals (ISM) is an organization dedicated to the performance of musical theater at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. Students will be able to gain experience in the administrative, technical, creative, and performance aspects of producing musical theatre. By putting on a show once a semester, students will be able to get first-hand experience in the collaborative process and in all elements of musical theater.


ISM strives to put on performances that showcase our members’ talent, enthusiasm, creativity, and passion. With each show, we aim to challenge ourselves as artists as well as our audiences with performances of the highest artistic and professional caliber.
