FIRST LOOK is a new program from New Musicals Australia. FIRST LOOK gives writers and composers a chance to present a showcase from their musical and receive direct feedback on their work by industry professionals.
Each participant presents up to 10 minutes of their work whether that be musical numbers, with or without lyrics or just dialogue scenes. Your musical does not need to be completed in order to present at FIRST LOOK.
FIRST LOOK is a full day of learning and experiencing musical theatre writing and composition. All of the writers and or composers from each presentation will be present for the other presentations and feedback seasons with up to 14 musicals presented on the day. This is a great opportunity for composers and writers to witness firsthand the advice and wisdom from our panel and gain perspective on the many aspects of putting together a musical.
The next FIRST LOOK event where writers and composers can present a showcase from their musical and receive direct feedback on their work by industry professionals at any stage of development, will be held in late 2018. Make your submission now.
