New Works, New World

October 18-19, 2022

The Pershing Square Signature Center, 480 West 42nd Street, NYC

…and online!

A series of frank discussions on the challenges and rewards of producing new musicals and engaging audiences in 2022, topics included ways to remove barriers to entry and points of friction for audiences, artists and staff who wish to return to the theatre (or enter it for the first time), how the current moment can be great for taking risks and cultivating new work…and also presents new obstacles; continued and increased efforts to improve diversity and inclusion across our field, leadership transitions, and more. We also previewed the Festival of New Musicals and offered plenty of networking and social time.

In addition to the in-person Conference in New York, we’re continuing to offer an online/hybrid experience so that more members may participate from anywhere! Our mobile and desktop app allowed all attendees to connect regardless of which option they chose, providing an online experience that goes beyond just passive viewing. Discounts were available for multiple participants to attend from your organization, with extremely low rates to add online attendees from organizations who also sent representatives in person.

If you registered for the Fall Conference (either in-person or online), click here to go to Webex Events (formerly Socio), our hybrid event platform, and access all of the Conference materials including attendee contacts, speaker bios, handouts, slides, connections made during the event, and more. Webex Events will be active at least through Spring, 2023. If you didn’t use Socio during the event, you can still set up your account using the email address you used to register with us.

Taking a step beyond Zoom readings, Apples and Oranges presents how they are using Virtual Reality technology to develop and present new musicals and the potential implications for the future of theatrical storytelling. Using examples from their live VR family musical Winter Lights to the pre-recorded immersive VR musical The Calling, speakers Tim and Pamela Kashani, Alani iLongwe and Tyler Heaton (Apples and Oranges Arts) will discuss the process for creating the shows in VR as well as tools and techniques to help NAMT members explore incorporating virtual reality into their development and production practices.

3:00 - 4:15 pmFewer Barriers, More Entry

The Irene Diamond Stage and Webex Events

Barriers to entry in the theatre are nothing new, but something has changed in the last two years, for audiences, artists and administrators. Or have frictions that have always been there simply been newly exposed? How are we welcoming people back to the theatre and cultivating new audiences at the same time? What positive changes are we seeing? What work still has to be done?

Moderated by Orlando Morales (The 5th Avenue Theatre), with Victoria Bailey (Theatre Development Fund), Andy Butterfield (Weston Theater Company), Pablo Hernandez Basulto (The Public Theater), Jason Kantrowitz (Luminous Ventures Ltd) and Shanta Thake (Lincoln Center)

10:15 - 11:15 amIDEAs From The Field

The Irene Diamond Stage and Webex Events

Two years after a racial awakening, many theatre companies are talking about diversity, equity, inclusion, belonging, justice… (you name it), but where is the ACTION? Join us for a facilitated conversation with two NAMT member theatres who are on active IDEA journeys. Hear about the successes, the ongoing challenges and everything in between.

Moderated by Seena Hodges (The Woke Coach), with David Byrd & Donna Lynn Hilton (Goodspeed Musicals).

The Irene Diamond Stage and Webex Events

11:30 am - 12:30 pmNew Works Across Generations

The Irene Diamond Stage and Webex Events

We talk about wanting to bring in new audiences but are we really developing work they want to see? Or maybe more importantly that they want to perform? Where is the work for high schools about high school students? Are there vibrant roles for actors of all ages? Are the communities we’re trying to reach truly being represented? We tell writers to write what they know, but whose voices are we telling them we value by what we produce?

Moderated by Aislinn Frantz (Chicago Shakespeare Theater), with Suzie Bixler (Village Theatre), Brannon Bowers (American Musical Theatre Project at Northwestern University), Britton Melton (Uptown Players), Greg Reiner (National Endowment for the Arts) and Kit Yan (Interstate, Fest ’19)

3:00 - 4:00 pmIt Was The Best Of Times, It Was...The Best Of Times???

The Irene Diamond Stage and Webex Events

Is this a great time or a terrible time to be producing new musicals? If we’re all rethinking how we engage our audiences, what other strategies can we rethink? What can we learn from other industries and businesses about the last year of change? How can we lean into opportunity instead of hiding from misfortune. Our panelists will discuss the new landscape for risk and growth for producers, artists and audiences.

Moderated by Susanna Gellert (Weston Theater Company), with Rachel Aldeman (Long Wharf Theatre), victor cervantes, jr. (Oregon Shakespeare Festival), Ann-Carol Pence (Aurora Theatre) and Keena Redding.

The Irene Diamond Stage and Webex Events

It seems like an unusually high number of NAMT member theatres have undergone leadership transitions over the last two years.

Hear from both incoming and departing leaders about how they successfully passed the baton, what wisdom they have to impart and what changes they plan to make.

Moderated by Kate Galvin (Constellation Stage and Screen), with Kwofe Coleman (The Muny), Mark Fleischer & Van Kaplan (Pittsburgh CLO), Adam Immerwahr, Laura Lee & Robb Hunt (Village Theatre), and Kappy Kilburn & Emily Wells (The Human Race Theatre).

Guidelines

Participation Guidelines

NAMT is committed to recognizing and celebrating the diversity of experiences, talents, skills, cultures and opinions that our members bring to our community, and specifically to our events. We invite you to participate in all of our Conferences, Roundtables, Festivals and other events, both online and in-person, in a spirit of open-mindedness, curiosity and respect.    

We want every NAMT event to be a safe, inclusive and productive environment for all participants. In that spirit, we ask you to…

  • Be inclusive, actively seeking and inviting diverse perspectives
  • Recognize that some people are comfortable responding quickly and verbally and others are not, and create space for those who may need more time to be heard
  • Listen to understand
  • Participate in an active and direct way, with professionalism and respect for others
  • Be considerate, kind, constructive and helpful in your language and actions
  • Use “I” statements and avoid generalizations
  • Assume good intentions but acknowledge impact
  • Ask questions if something isn’t clear, and receive both questions and answers with openness and generosity
  • Refrain from demeaning, discriminatory or harassing behavior and language
  • Respect confidentiality requests by speakers and other participants

We may take action (up to and including expulsion with no refund and exclusion from future events) to redress disruptive, disrespectful or offensive behavior or any other actions perceived by NAMT staff and/or Board to be in conflict with the above guidelines. 

We know that learning and working together can produce both joy and conflict. We recognize that to learn is to stumble, and we are striving to provide a space for risk, creativity, respect, appreciation, growth and collaboration. When addressing conflicts of any type, we commit to these Participation Guidelines.

Thank you to every NAMT community member for helping to make all of our events informative, inclusive and respectful.
