Collaboration is all
Musical theatre is the most collaborative art form: achieved through the successful mix of many creative relationships.
We believe in the power of creating together, to produce new work that is greater than the sum of its parts.
Every voice can achieve
Whatever the starting point, every writer has the potential to improve and achieve excellence.
We welcome all creatives, from all backgrounds, identities and experience, to help them be the best they can be.
Tradition is vital
The strongest work is a response to what has gone before, to conventions and expectations, to the work of experts and leading practitioners.
We ensure our writers are equipped with
a critical language, knowledge and understanding that develops the tradition of musical theatre.
Artists need each other
Writers need the support of their peers to grow, to develop their voice, and produce work that is absolutely their own.
We create an environment of mutual support and challenge to help our writers develop their craft with confidence.
