CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS: NEW MUSICALS FOR FUTURE CONSIDERATION - ONGOING

The Arvada Center invites theatre artists to submit proposals for a musical, performance piece, devised work, or adaptation to be considered for inclusion in upcoming musical theatre seasons. Submissions should be complete and ready for readings, workshops or productions, and available for performance sometime after the 2016/2017 season. Members of the Arvada Center will choose several projects for further discussion and workshopping, with the goal of including at least one in a future season. Those selected may receive a Standard Production contract for a fully staged production, and contracts will be at the discretion of the Producing Artistic Director (Musicals) and Chief Operating Officer.

Guidelines for submission:

  • Submitters must have full underlying rights clearance of any pre-existing material used in the script
  • The musical cannot already be licensed through another licensing house, or have been produced on Broadway (shows that have had readings, workshops and/or productions including regional or Off Broadway are still eligible)
  • The Arvada Center is committed to working with local actors, directors, and designers, so that should be considered in project proposals.
  • The Arvada Center hopes to use this process to broaden its thinking about what theatre can be and whose voices it should include, so proposals that are different than previous Main Stage theatre productions are encouraged.

Anyone interested in submitting a proposal should send a description of their work to Producing Artistic Director of Musicals, Rod Lansberry at rod@arvadacenter.org. Please include:

  • Title page
  • Brief synopsis, including information on writers, agents, production/development history
  • Character breakdown
  • CD with track listings -- an accurate representation of the music and style of the show
  • Numbered pages
  • Demo track numbers must be included in the script where each track is to be played when reading
  • The complete script (all scenes, songs, and lyrics on the page)
  • Proof of rights:
    • If the musical contains any copyrighted material, please submit a signed letter from the authors and underlying rights representative stating that underlying rights have been secured
    • If the musical is wholly original, please submit a signed letter from the creators that the musical is original
    • If there is material that is now in the public domain, please submit a signed letter stating when the work entered the public domain

We expect writers to be hands-on throughout the process, from casting through Opening. Writers are expected to be at rehearsals as requested (starting approx. 24 days prior to Opening) and at all related events regarding readings,workshops and rehearsals. Must be comfortable working closely with the Director and Producer. Those selected may receive a Standard Production contract for a fully staged production of the piece. The contract will be at the discretion of the Artistic Producing Director (Musicals) and Chief Operating Officer.
