Deadline: April 2, 2021
THE AUBREY & MARLA DAN FUND FOR NEW MUSICALS
The Aubrey & Marla Dan Fund for New Musicals is the first ever fund exclusively for the commissioning of new Canadian musical works. This opportunity is managed by The Musical Stage Company, with funding from The Aubrey & Marla Dan Foundation. The fund offers financial and dramaturgical support to creators in creating and developing a first draft of a new musical. Ideas that exemplify the most potential will be awarded an $8,000 commission to cover a 5-week writing period, and a private reading of the first draft.
The Musical Stage Company is committed to the development and production of new Canadian musical works. As such, commissioned projects may subsequently be offered additional development or production opportunities upon completion of the commission. The commission contract will outline the terms of these continued opportunities.
Individual musical theatre creators, teams of musical theatre creators, and theatre creation collectives are all welcome to apply. Projects should be in an early phase of conception or development. If a completed first draft already exists, the project may be too far along for this program unless writers are looking to do substantial reconceiving, essentially generating a new first draft.
COMMISSION TERMS: Commission terms will include billing in future productions, and a small share in future proceeds from subsidiary rights and commercial productions pending continued development and production from The Musical Stage Company.
Submissions shall be comprised of:
A. A ONE-PAGE PROJECT PROPOSAL (PDF)
This should include: what the project is about, what you need developmentally/creatively, why it is a fit for TMSC, and a list of any existing developmental partners.
B. TWO AUDIO SAMPLES (MP3)
Two audio samples from the proposed project (preferred), or from a previous work by the applicant(s).
All of the above should be submitted to email@example.com with the subject line “[COLLABORATOR’S NAMES] - 2021 Dan Fund Submission” by April 2, 2021.
