    Playwright Seeking Composer/ Lyricist

    Immaculate Misconceptions is a one man show about God getting ready for a brunch and as he does he wants to clear up the misconceptions out there about him as he does. It is witty, fast paced, and has a blend of physical comedy and one liners. I would like to turn it into a musical with some very old school musical theatre, hilarious, and smart songs.

    Playwright/ Lyricist Seeking Composer/ Playwright

    I've sketched a rough draft of the book for this new musical and have mapped out the general arc of the story and main characters. Although I *could* go this road alone, I really believe this show will succeed through a team effort and I want to share the journey with a collaborator. The concept is a dark and whimsical contemporary musical inspired by a classic gothic tale in the public domain. But this isn't simply that story reimagined. The romantic twist is fresh and funny. Ideally you have a background and training similar to mine, i.e. you have experience wearing all three hats writing musicals. While I'd like to have input with the music, ultimately I'd like someone else to write the songs and do the heavy lifting with composition, notation, and arranging. Lyrics and dialogue are my...

    I am the co-creator of STEM: the Musical Explains the Universe, an educational assembly program "school house rock for the sciences" that has reached over 50,000 students. I am seeking to feature the same four characters in this universe in a family-friendly full length theatrical production. A newly blended brother and sister, who want no part of each other, are trapped in their basement with their best friends. With no wifi or phone signal, and with critical pre-teen deadlines approaching, can they use STEM to escape? Most of the music is written, and the story concept is waiting for you. Hear the single from the first STEM: the Musical production https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ykOf-ftxf6Y

    Composer Seeking Librettist/ Lyricist

    I'm a composer interested in working with a lyricist on writing some new art songs. My goal would be to find a librettist who'd be interested in developing a larger opera piece later, but I'd like to start with smaller sized pieces to develop the collaboration. While I've worked a bit on musical theater in the past, my interest is solely in non-commercial art music at the moment. You can hear some examples of my music under the name Ferrous Ensemble on various streaming services or at ferrousensemble.com.

    This precis describes the genesis of this piece, well-underway in the third act in verse, potentially operatic: ==================== gwsaunde@syr.edu date: Apr 27, 2021, 4:48 PM subject: Query: 'Booth @ Confessional': A Dantean sojourn Inspired by your seminal 'Lincoln in the Bardo', the dying assassin resorts to a thought-sacrosanct waystation--Mary Surrat's priest's church...before 'crossing' the Potomac to medical care and freedom unafforded by Dr. Mudd. A graphic novella, a la 'Maus' and others delving deeply into the healing found in shared sorrows. In studying your dramaturgical novel, my decades-long obsession with the proposition that I have 'bardo-ed' my way into the renewed psyche of Judah P. Benjamin now finds its roots in the furrows of t...

    Composer/ Playwright/ Lyricist Seeking Playwright

    Composers seeking director. I am one of two composers who have collaborated to write an original, full length musical based on a book of the Hebrew Bible. The book is generally familiar; a few film adaptations exist. However, its essence has never been brought to life, and it has not spoken to a modern audience, in the way we have in this new work. The musical has 20+ songs and full book. We seek a director who can organize the next steps: readings, workshops, and eventually full production. The director must be familiar and have experience with new musicals, vs. revivals, as we anticipate feedback and changes during workshops. The musical will eventually require the skills of up to 30 people including actors, singers, dancers, stagehands, choreographers, costume designers. We have a f...

    Seeking a director for a finished play recently developed at the Actors Studio. Play is finished and I'm looking for the right person to move it to the next level with. Synopsis bellow: Molly Jones loves baseball, specifically the NY METS, still she’s never been to a real game. This brilliant 9-year-old reads Seneca and dreams of catching baseballs, while sleeping under a canopy of monitors in NY Presbyterian Hospital, being treated for Lymphoblastic Leukemia. Her Make-a-Wish is, of course, a Mets game and she has a ticket, not to just any Mets game, but a sudden death playoff game against the “Braves she hates”. Meanwhile her physician, Dr. Teigen Marshall, has the rare opportunity to administer a new miracle drug, (Fluxamean) but, it must be today, right now, to save Molly’s life. Th...

    Playwright Seeking Playwright

    Hi, my partner was the late playwright Robert McIlwaine who wrote four complete two act plays and several one acts. One of the plays COUNTRY DARK was staged off-Broadway several times between 1996-2006. He wrote themes about fantasy, escapism and parent/child emotional conflicts in dramatic and comedic/farcical genres. He belonged to many playwright development organizations and was a member of the DG for over thirty years. Since inheriting his estate after he died on June 7, 2020, I have been trying to a find an agent, or source to help me promote his plays posthumously. I recently became a legacy member of the DG and wondering if any playwright would be interested in some kind of collaborative effort with me to use his plays for new creative ideas. Ultimately, I will donate the...
