BRINGING PEOPLE AND RESOURCES TOGETHER TO IMPROVE OPPORTUNITIES FOR NEW MUSICAL THEATRE IN THE UK

______________________________________________________________________________

Welcome to Musical Theatre Network – a membership organisation with a mission to bring people and resources together to improve infrastructure and opportunities for new musical theatre in the UK. Our membership is a national network of venues, producers, colleges, directors, organisations and individuals involved in developing or staging new musicals. In partnership with our members, MTN works to strengthen and diversify the new musical theatre sector nationwide, and so support development of the artform. MTN works with, and on behalf of, its members to:

Advocate for increased support of new British musical theatre – greater investment in terms of money and time, more productions and growing audiences

Facilitate improved communication, more connections and closer collaboration within a diverse, UK-wide musical theatre community

Encourage best practice in staging new musical theatre and nurturing the artform’s development

Membership is open to anyone working professionally in musical theatre and provides access to a wide range of networks, advice, events and opportunities. Come and join our fast-growing community of independent producers, directors, venues and colleges alongside the likes of ATG, Curve, Katy Lipson, Royal Conservatoire of Scotland, Tania Azevedo, The Other Palace and Jamie Wilson Productions. Come and help us shape the future of musical theatre in Britain. TO JOIN, CLICK HERE
