The Drama League has launched a songwriting contest, calling for composers to post a Broadway-style "Anthem for the Future of Theatre" on TikTok, the video platform that has spawned several viral musicals this past year including Ratatouille: The TikTok Musical and The Unofficial Bridgerton Musical.
Five songs will be selected and performed by Broadway stars at The Drama League's fall benefit, Light the Lights!, honoring Emmy Award winner Wayne Brady. The composers will also win a $250 cash prize and be invited to the NYC event, held October 18 at The Players' Clubhouse.
