Two-week workshops to take place June 6-20, 2011
Applications accepted now through Jan. 10, 2011
The Yale Institute for Music Theater (Mark Brokaw, Artistic Director; Beth Morrison, Producer) will select three original music theatre works to receive two-week workshops in New Haven June 6-20, 2011. Submissions will be accepted November 1, 2010 through January 10, 2011.
Established by Yale School of Drama (James Bundy, Dean) and Yale School of Music (Robert Blocker, Dean), the Yale Institute for Music Theater seeks 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. By limiting production resources and values, the workshop will keep the focus on the creative process of the artistic team.
The selections for the inaugural Yale Institute for Music Theater in June 2009 were the book musicals sam i was with book, music, and lyrics by Sam Wessels, and POP! with book and lyrics by Maggie-Kate Coleman and music by Anna K. Jacobs; and the opera Invisible Cities with score and libretto by Christopher Cerrone. In 2010, The Daughters, with music and libretto by Shaina Taub; and Stuck Elevator, with music by Byron Au Yong and libretto by Aaron Jafferis, were workshopped. MORE
