MTAP--Musical Theatre Artists of Pittsburgh--brings together a group of local and regional artists working in a wide range of musical theatre expression, from solo cabaret to full-length narrative musical theatre. 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.
Abduction has been chosen for MTAP's first ever Incubator Workshop! With book by TJ Pieffer, lyrics by Becki Toth, and music by Becki Toth and Brad Kemp, Abduction tells the story of a high school girl rescuing her father - and then her entire town - from aliens. The show has had previous readings at Columbia College, Chicago, in 2018, and at the New York Musicals Festival in 2019. The Incubator Workshop will be its first staging. Check back here for more details to come!
