Pace University Announces Open Submissions for 'Pace New Musicals'


The Musical Theater Program at Pace University, which embraces the development of new musicals as part of its mission, is currently accepting submissions of new musical theater works for a series of performances at Pace University in January 2012. Last year's musical was Factory Girls written by Creighton Irons, Sean Mahoney and Maggie-Kate Coleman.

The chosen piece will be given a full reading in the Schaeberle Theater at Pace University in lower Manhattan, with actors chosen from the musical theater student body. There will be a two-week rehearsal period starting Tuesday, January 3, 2012 with seven performances starting January 18 and ending January 22, 2012.

Because of the short rehearsal time, completed scores and scripts are requested. Pace New Musicals will provide the space, the performers, a stage manager, a light board and light operator, and a director and music director. If there is already a director and/or music director attached to the project and wants to continue that association, then it is up to the creators whether or not to use them for this reading.

"Our objective is to nurture the creation of new musical theater in New York City and to provide an invaluable educational opportunity to our students to work directly with top professionals in the field," said Amy Rogers, the founder and director of the Musical Theater at Pace University.
The Musical Theater Program at Pace University started in 2002 with six majors and has grown to a fully accredited BFA program in Music Theater with 100 majors. Under the guidance of Rogers and music director, Robert Meffe, the program is preparing the next generation of Broadway performers.
