    Librettist/ Lyricist Seeking Composer

    SEEKING COMPOSER FOR SATIRICAL POKEMON PUPPET MUSICAL. My collaborator and I have completed the book and lyrics for our new musical, "BALLS, or The Assassination of Ash Ketchum." We are looking for a composer who in interested in collaborating on a musical comedy; extra goodness if you have any experience in Chiptune or video game music. Here's a brief synopsis: "When the Squirtle Squad radicalizes into a fascist regime, the status quo of the Pokemon world is threatened, leaving hope in the non-heroic hands of Professor Oak and his piece of shit grandson. It’s a wildly unauthorized satirical musical, with about 150 characters played by about 8 people and their carpal tunnel puppet hands." Please email for more info.

    Playwright Seeking Playwright

    Looking for a diversity editor/sensitivity editor/ cultural consultant to help with a TYA play about Trickster Gods throughout world mythology - specifically with help representing (or knowing if it's possible to represent) the Coyote trickster god myths from various Native American tribes. The play is "finished" in that it's gone through several rewrites, workshops, and staged readings; but work is paused until I can determine if and how it can be respectfully brought forward. Initial outlines were done with consultation from other Native American writers and cultural organizations, but I need help determining next steps. Thanks.

    Composer/ Playwright/ Lyricist Seeking Playwright

    I'm a solo writer in need of a dramaturgical presence for the coming drafts of my new musical, NOISE. I'm looking for someone excited about developing new work, ideally with an eye for structure! ABOUT NOISE: When Dr. Kenton began conducting a study on a college campus, she thought she was on the brink of a biomedical breakthrough. Today, she appears before a jury. Elsewhere, an unlikely friendship between two college students takes a bitter turn. As these stories unfold and begin to echo one another, lines blur between the past as we remember it, and the future as we fear it. Noise is a contemporary musical which investigates the nonlinear nature of healing, the interconnectedness of our wounds and our wants, and the ways we can be blinded by our ghosts.

    Librettist/ Lyricist Seeking Composer

    A king who claims not only his subjects but their stories too, to retell as HIS story (not to say, History)? The Odysseus of the play-within-a-play "The O.G. and the Aegean" calls to mind both autocrat and gang leader. But take a step back; the creative team and cast of "O.G." wage backstage battles to take what they think is theirs, even when it puts the show at risk. Another step back, & get perspective on professional setback through personal and pandemic tragedy. All that is “The Pursuit of Tru.” Your deft use of motifs to bind similar themes across layers of the show will be critically acclaimed. Your work will distinguish legit emotion from its counterfeit, in a story that questions its teller. “Hamilton” meets Edith Hamilton, “A Chorus Line,” and “The Producers.” Email to discus...

    Playwright/ Lyricist Seeking Composer/ Librettist

    Playwright/Poet seeking a collaboration with a composer. The idea for this musical is quite specific. It is a dark comedy about suicide; it chronicles the lives of several people, young and old. I am interested in someone who has knowledge of the traditional musical theater structure but also has an interest in rock sub-genres, some examples would be darkwave and electronica. I am looking for someone who is interested in experimentation with non-traditional musical theater styles that can be woven into a solid structure. I am working at a slow but steady pace with no performance plans at the moment. I intend to apply for funding in 2021 to complete the project once I have three or more songs from the show developed.

    Hi. My name is Rene B. Idowu. I am new in the theater scene. I have invested in a few Broadway Plays. It was fun to do. I know that I am not a good playwright but, I have a few stories that I want to tell as Musicals. One of my Stories has to do with Ancient Christianity in North/East Africa. I am currently working on a plot and I need help because, I am stuck. This story has never been told on stage or on the screen, anywhere but, in colleges and universities. The history is True but, the story is fantasy. I am seeking people to help me finish this and put it on the stage. Right Now, I am also in research mode to find out more material and develop characters. So, if you are interested email me.
