Each week we look through our pile of writing opportunities to pick out one we think is particularly worth your time. It could be an innovative brief, great prize money, a high-profile company, or just plain fun.
Description: From Page to Stage is a festival of new musical theatre dedicated to showcasing unproduced work and work in development. The fifth annual festival will be held at Andrew Lloyd Webber’s newest theatre The Other Palace. From Page to Stage funds and arranges the inclusion of the selected pieces, endeavouring to pay a fair wage to contracted artists. The festival is not intended for profit but to allow new work a platform on which to be developed and exposed to new audiences.
What’s so great about it? This an amazing opportunity for all you budding musical writers out there. If you want the chance of a fully staged rehearsed reading of your piece of musical theatre at a London theatre, then we suggest get your submission in for this one quick sharp! One lucky writer will also get a full production of their show, with no less than three weeks rehearsal and 10-12 performances.
