Date: Tuesday 03 November 2015
Every Tuesday, Musical Theatre takes over the bar on Tuesdays with four distinct programmes aimed at introducing audiences to new artists and voices.
Composer Spotlight Highlighting one upcoming/emerging/new MT writers from London and the United States. These are the future artists who will change and challenge musical theatre. Mixed Up Musicals A kitschy exploration of the musical theatre songbook by switching things around. Never heard ‘And I Am Telling You’ sung by an Asian man? Now you can. Testing 1, 2, 3 A chance for composer/lyricists to test new material in a sort of open forum showcase.
The American Songbook A introduction to amazing musicals from the American theatre that London audiences have never heard (both classic and contemporary and everything in between). MTT is always looking for singers (Amateurs and Professionals – all welcome!).
If interested please e-mail MTSubmissions@stratfordeast.com with a headshot and links/mp3s of you singing.

Musical Theatre is a key priority for Theatre Royal Stratford East with a vision to break new ground and revitalise the musical form to create work that is relevant to and informed by today’s modern Britain and attract new diverse audiences.
To realise this vision, in 1999 we launched our Musical Theatre Initiative, giving writers and musicians a development process to bring their own voices into the context of theatre, using words, music, and/or beats.
Without such support, there is no natural bridge into musical theatre for much of the music-writing talent that is abundant in Britain today. More information can be found on our musicals submission page.
