Hayes Theatre Co’s musical theatre development program.
New Musicals Australia is an initiative dedicated to the development and production of original music theatre.We assist emerging writers and composers, to get their work off the ground. Through a series of development programs, a script and score will be placed in the hands of professionals and brought to life in front of experts from the musical theatre industry.
Hayes Theatre Co manages the New Musicals Australia process and since 2014 there has been two rounds of submissions with the last round closing in May 2016. To keep up to date with New Musicals Australia please sign up for the Hayes Theatre Co newsletter.
