The Musical Stage Company in association with Prime Mover Theatre Co. is pleased to announce that submissions are now open for NoteWorthy, a flagship paid musical theatre writing program for professional artists across Canada.

Offered bi-annually, NoteWorthy allows composers, lyricists and playwrights from across Canada to build foundational skills through master classes and guided collaborative writing assignments. The program will be offered entirely online this season and made available to the largest cohort of artists ever with national representation.

To help ensure that the future of musical theatre better represents a diverse range of stories and voices, the 2020-2021 NoteWorthy program will exclusively support BIPOC artists from across Canada. All participating artists will receive access to the program for free as well as an honorarium to help them reserve the necessary time required for participation in this two-month program. The program will also be led and facilitated by a completely BIPOC artistic team with top international facilitators leading discussions for artists coast to coast.
