VIP Access to the Festival of New Musicals

Since 1989, the Festival of New Musicals has introduced more than 300 shows and 500 writers to industry insiders with the resources to move the work forward, leading to subsequent productions, development, recordings, licensing or commissions for more than 85% of our musicals and alumni. NAMT members receive Premiere or Select Passes, providing them with priority seating at the Festival and access to VIP networking events, as well as additional opportunities to meet the writers, be first in line to express interest in a show, connect with other NAMT members to discuss collaboration opportunities, and follow the shows as they develop after the Festival.


 Conferences

FC11 PrinceNAMT’s two annual conferences provide valuable networking and learning opportunities, with panels and workshops featuring some of the top executives and creative professionals in the industry. With a focus on sharing successes, adaptability and lively discussion, our conferences are intimate and energetic forums where members get concrete ideas they can take back to their theatres and implement quickly. Ample time to talk in small groups and socialize leads to career-long relationships and a network of colleagues you can call on at any time. Conferences are open only to members and invited guests, and members receive the lowest possible rates to attend.


 Grants

The National Fund for New Musicals supports collaborations between member theatres and musical theatre writers via grants to NAMT’s US-based not-for-profit members to support writer residencies, workshops and full productions of new musicals.

The Innovation & Exploration Fund helps member theatres pilot new ideas in various administrative and production areas to advance their missions.

 

Roundtables

NWS12 LA - Daniel G Lam 2Our Roundtables give NAMT members an opportunity to network, explore best practices and share case studies in more intimate, informal settings than the Conferences, usually focusing on topics of narrower interest. New Works Roundtables are typically held in conjunction with festivals or productions of new musicals at member theatres, and Writers’ Roundtables, held annually in New York, bring Festival alumni writers and member producers together to build connections and explore models of collaboration. Roundtables are also held on a variety of management and community engagement topics, hosted by member theatres around the country.
