Now accepting submissions
until January 6th, 2020
Through a highly competitive open submission process, new 10-minute musicals are chosen each year for production to be performed before a live audience. This one night event has grown each year in size and scope. Since its inception 60 musical theatre writing teams have had their musicals produced utilizing the talents of over 700 performers, musicians, directors, choreographers, interns and volunteers.
We provide ongoing support to the writers throughout the process including production and dramaturgical sessions, rehearsal space, technical support, paid stipends to the performing artists, technicians, and directors. The program is central to the writer’s involvement throughout the entire process from the first meeting to seeing their work on stage, fully produced with the support of professional artists, staff and crew.
Finalists will join an alumni network of musical theatre writing teams, actors, directors and choreographers from festivals of years past. Each SOUND BITES 7.0 finalist may also receive further development opportunities in the future.
