Berklee Theater Arts Collaborative (BTAC) is seeking new musical submissions

web site

Berklee Theater Arts Collaborative (BTAC), the program for musical theater performance, stage management, conducting, and songwriting minors at Berklee College of Music, is seeking new musical submissions for main stage, staged-reading, and studio workshop productions.

Scripts at all stages of development are welcome

Students work under the direction of Berklee's faculty industry professionals to produce and perform all aspects of the new work, including new arrangements where appropriate

Performances are presented publicly at the Berklee Performance Center and other Berklee stage venues. High quality video recording may be available for archival and portfolio reference (subject to individual contract agreements). In many cases, pieces are performed with a full live orchestra. Writers have access to professional creative and production team feedback. Writers maintain full ownership of their work

The search committee is primarily seeking interesting stories with strong writing and music to feature our culturally diverse student body and promote the program's main goal: to help shape the narrative for the next generation of Broadway creators and performers by changing the landscape of theater to be fully inclusive of actors, directors, and writers of diverse backgrounds

BTAC prioritizes musicals with:
  • Open Casting possibilities 
  • Empowered roles for women, people of color, and the LGBTQ+ community 
  • Opportunities for actors who play instruments 
  • Cast sizes ranging from 10 to 18 characters including ensemble roles
  • Main characters age appropriate for college students (teens-late 20’s)
BTAC employs both Open and Conscious Casting for all theater productions. Which means: unless significant aspects of the story are about gender, sexuality, or race topics  - all roles are open to all students regardless of race, color, gender identity, nationality, ethnicity, class, religion, ability, age, sex, and sexual orientation
