New Writing for Musical Theatre

The National Youth Music Theatre invites submissions of new musicals for inclusion in their development process for future seasons.

NYMT's 2022 summer season included a full production of the new British musical A Kiss For Cinderella by Annabel Mutale Reed and Jack Trczinski. As part of NYMT’s summer programme in 2021, the writers benefitted from a week-long workshop process with a full-sized cast and professional creative team.

Selected pieces will receive:

• One week’s fully funded closed workshop as part of the NYMT 2023 season.

• Mentorship from an NYMT creative team who are specialists in new musical theatre.

• The opportunity to invite guests to a reading at the end of the workshop week.

• A post-workshop debrief with the creative and production team, looking at next steps for the piece and the writers.

• Consideration for inclusion in NYMT’s 2024 season of work.

PLEASE NOTE – As with our talent search for performing company members, we are looking for potential rather than finished pieces. We understand that the business of creating new musicals involves being open to change, and that things could change considerably before, during and after the workshop process.

Don’t let a lack of experience put you off from applying – new voices are exactly what we are looking for!
