We are excited to announce the CMTWC Writers Room, a place for advanced writers to present their works-in-progress, and receive feedback from their peers and a special guest moderator.
The CMTWC Writers Room will take place at Randolph Academy for the Performing Arts (736 Bathurst St, Toronto, ON). Each session meets from 7:30-9:30 pm.
The following dates are available:
Monday, March 20, 2017
With Guest Moderators MITCHELL MARCUS (Acting Up Stage Company), and DAVID WARRACK (Award winning composer and conductor)
Monday, May 15, 2017
With Guest Moderator PAUL SPORTELLI (Shaw Festival)
Participants sign up for a 20-minute slot. The fee for each writer or writing team is $20 (fee covers room costs and stipend for the moderator).
If you would like to participate in the Writers Room, please sign up for a slot by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. In your email, include your name, the title of the project you’re working on, the date you’d like to participate, and any other specifics (e.g., need an early slot due to performer availability, etc.).
What do we mean by “advanced writers”? We’re using the term as a catch-all phrase for writers who have already completed a musical theatre writing program, such as the CMTWC Writers Workshop, Theatre 20’s Composium, the BMI Lehman Engel Musical Theatre Workshop, NYU’s Graduate Musical Theatre Writing Program, or something similar. "Advanced writers" also includes those who have a resume of significant professional productions of their work.
If you haven’t completed one of the above programs, don’t worry—you’re welcome to audit! The fee to audit is $5 and you must sign up in advance by sending an email to email@example.com with your name and date you’d like to attend. Want to participate but haven't completed a musical theatre writing program yet? Apply for the CMTWC Writers Workshop!
