New Works, New Voices (NWNV) 2024


Deadline: July 1, 2023 at 11:59pm EST


The Syracuse University Department of Drama is seeking submissions for its Spring 2024 New Works, New Voices (NWNV) initiative.  NWNV was created to support the development of musicals by writers and composers whose perspectives have been historically underrepresented in the musical theater canon. 

NWNV is seeking completed musicals or musicals-in-progress from teams who are interested in developing their work with undergraduate BFA students.  One musical will be selected, to receive a 3-week developmental reading in the Spring 2024 semester (3/30/24-4/21/24), directed and music directed by SU Drama faculty and performed by SU Drama students.  

The writing team will be in residence in Syracuse during weeks 2 and 3 of the rehearsal process (travel and lodging provided by NWNV) and will participate virtually during week 1.

ALL SUBMISSIONS ARE DUE BY JULY 1, 2023 (11:59pm EST).  Semi-finalists will be contacted for additional materials in late summer/early fall 2023. 

Please submit the details of your musical work with the submission form.

Questions? Please email Kathleen Wrinn, Artistic Director of NWNV and Assistant Professor of Musical Theater at SU Drama (kawrinn@syr.edu). 

Thank you for submitting to NWNV!  We look forward to reading and listening to your work.
