Brokaw (Cry-Baby) is the artistic director for the Institute, a joint venture between the Yale School of Drama and the Yale School of Music that seeks to develop the work of graduate and recent post-graduate students. Morrison serves as producer.
According to Yale, the goal of the institute is to "identify distinctive and original book musical, opera, and experimental/non-traditional music theatre works by emerging composers and writers, and match them with collaborators such as directors, music directors, and actors/singers who can help them further develop their work."
The institute is open to current graduate students, those who have graduated from an accredited degree-granting institution (undergraduate or graduate) within the past five years or current Yale students. The two-week workshops will take place in New Haven from June 6-20, 2011.
Three productions will be selected for the workshop, with each member of the writing team receiving an honorarium in the amount of $1,000, as well as round-trip transportation and accommodation for the duration of the workshop.
Submissions are currently being accepted through Jan. 10, 2011. For submission guidelines and applications, visit YaleMusicTheatreInstitute.
