Musical Theatre Creators Salon
June 12, 2PM
(7pm Salon is cancelled)
Every musical starts somewhere! The Musical Theatre Creators' Salon is your opportunity to get in on the ground floor of the developmental process, hear what’s new, and learn more about what it takes to make a song or a show work. Local writing teams will present excerpts from new musicals in progress and receive professional feedback from award-winning Canadian composer-lyricist Daniel Maté. Each Salon will also feature time for questions and discussion about musical theatre song craft.
If you would like to present material from a show you’re working on, please write to email@example.com before June 1st.
