Help Celebrate the Power of Musical Theatre

In all times, but especially during challenging times, we believe that musical theatre has the power to elevate the human experience and uplift each other.

Most of us will spend more time at home in the coming weeks, and we know that the current health crisis is taking a major emotional and financial toll. We hope we can offer a bit of an inspired incentive by inviting you to use this socially distanced time as an opportunity for musical theatre creativity. With the generous support of the Alhadeff Family Charitable Foundation we are excited to announce the NAMT 15-Minute Musical Challenge.

We are calling for submissions of 15 minutes of brand-new material by May 15, 2020. This can be a complete, 15-minute musical or 15 minutes of a new full-length project.  While we recognize the current crisis will be on our collective minds, this is a call for musicals about absolutely anything and everything. Whatever idea has been percolating…now’s the time! Submitted musicals must be written after March 19, 2020 to be eligible.  

Winning submissions will receive a cash prize, through the generous and enthusiastic support of the Alhadeff Family Charitable Foundation. 

Please note this will be a blind review process and therefore all scripts and demos submitted should not include writer information.

Other information

  • All writers are eligible to submit (US and International)
  • One submission per writer
  • Digital submissions only
  • This is for brand-new work only, written after March 19, 2020
