Bravo Academy for the Performing Arts and New Music Theatre Intensives are proud to announce that we are now accepting submissions for our 2021 Writer's Workshop!
Led by Canadian director/writer, Steven Gallagher, the NMTI Writer's Workshop will explore the fundamentals of writing for the musical theatre through a series of assignments and exercises. Work with like-minded artists as you navigate the challenging and rewarding process of building a musical from scratch! Daily writing sessions with your collaborators will push your creative abilities to the limit while exciting workshops with Canadian music theatre guest artists build your knowledge of the craft and expand your writing toolbox. The two-week workshop will culminate in a presentation of your 10-15 minute original musical!
Bravo Academy's New Music Theatre Intensives provide innovative, modern, advanced and highly specialized music theatre training for both young and emerging artists. Through producing contemporary music theatre, our intensive programs assist and advance artists. We strive to challenge and educate artists to reach their potential, by working with leading professionals and artists.
