The Scenic Route is currently seeking submissions from composers, lyricists and musical theatre performers for inclusion into our upcoming Sneak Preview Cabaret showcasing new musical theatre writing.
They will be welcoming Chris Grady and MD Peter White amongst our special guests providing feedback on selected works.
The event takes place on Thursday 27th March, 7.30pm, at the Wenlock and Essex, 18-26 Essex Road, Islington, London, N1 8LN.
What to submit: For writers, there are two submission options.
Submission option #1: Musical Excerpt
They are interested in hearing from composers/lyricists who are keen to come along and present a concert style performance of 3/4 numbers from their new musical (works in progress or otherwise), with accompanying narrated plot summaries/ excerpts. The guest panel of industry professionals will then provide feedback on the work.
Submission option #2: Concert Numbers
They are interested in hearing from composers/lyricists who are keen to come along and present a concert style performance of one song from a new musical, works in progress or otherwise. The songs can be out of context as the Scenic Route will facilitate introductions as necessary. The panel will not provide formal feedback on concert numbers.
For both options they ask that you provide your own pianist/ backing tracks and performer/s (They will provide the piano and mics, etc).
How to apply: Please send scores/ demos and lyrics of proposed works for selection to: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Deadline: Friday 7 March 2014
