Update on COVID-19 and MTAP's Incubator Workshop
In the best interests of the health and safety of our artists, staff, and patrons, MTAP is postponing the Incubator Workshop of the new musical Abduction, originally scheduled for April 17 to 19, until a later date. We will post updates as new information becomes available. If you have any questions, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org and we'll try to provide answers.
About Abduction: All Pippa wants to do is win another term as student body president, but now her father's been abducted by aliens--along with the town's single cow. So add to her list saving him and many others from a gruesome death. Along the way, can she make peace with her mother, discover love in an unlikely place, and bring the entire town of Pluto, Indiana, to its senses?

Through monthly meetings, the group supports the development of new work, serving as an incubator where new works of musical theatre come into being and are nurtured.

This just in from Sandra Lowell: The musical Mistress has been selected as a finalist in New York City’s Rave Theater Festival headed by producer Ken Davenport. Formerly titled Kitty, with music and lyrics by Sandra Lowell and book by John Keating, the show presented in November, 2015, was the first of MTAP’s Incubator readings. It was directed by Mark Fleischer, and music-directed by James Rushin, who also wrote the music for Off with Her Maidenhead, MTAP's inaugural public reading from 2014. See more information about the shows HERE.
Sunday Saari, whose song "August" was presented in 2019's Hot Metal Musicals, was the winner of the Piano Day Pittsburgh songwriting competition held Saturday, March 28, for her song "Think." The grand prize for the winning artist included both cash and a studio recording session. Laura Lind was also in the running as a finalist, with her song "Mister Rogers," also presented in 2019's Hot Metal Musicals. MTAP is delighted at having two such talented artists honored in the competition.
