92NY’s Musical Theater Development Lab is seeking playwrights and composers specializing in Theater for Young Audiences (TYA). The Lab offers a unique platform designed to support and showcase works specifically tailored for young audiences, providing an invaluable opportunity for these pieces to undergo active exploration and development.

We believe in the power of staged performances to bring theatrical creations to life and foster their growth. Through developmental readings and staged productions, selected TYA composers and playwrights will have the chance to witness their works unfold on stage, receiving feedback from both fellow creatives and the most important audience members: families and young theatergoers.

We are actively seeking TYA composers and playwrights with pieces that would benefit from our 2024—2025 Development Lab season beginning this July.

Applications are due June 15, 2024.

To apply, please send:

- - A proposal for your TYA musical of no more than 1000 words, including where you are in the process and why seeing the work stages would benefit your process.

- - A ten-page sample of your writing, preferably from your proposed musical. If this is not available, you may submit a sample of previous work intended for TYA.

- - A demo recording of 1-3 musical numbers from the musical. Please DO NOT attach these to the email; rather, upload to Google Drive/Dropbox and send a link.

- - Bio or resume of each member of the creative team.

- - A statement as to why you think you are a good fit for this project.

Send materials by June 15 to Attn: Megan Doyle, Executive Artistic Director, Mdoyle@92ny.org (PDF or links required; please do not attach large files as it will cause your email to be rejected).
