Yale Institute for Music Theatre Accepting Submissions for 2011

News   Yale Institute for Music Theatre Accepting Submissions for 2011 The Yale Institute for Music Theatre, under the artistc leadership of Mark Brokaw and Beth Morrison, is now accepting submissions for its 2011 workshops, which will take place in New Haven, CT, in June.

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.
