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



– we have a passion for work that takes a fresh look at the form

Connectivity – we encourage connections across creative practice.
