Here's what happened at the last monthly meeting:
Big decisions were made that we won't be sending any submissions to NAMT for the next round of the New Musicals Festival, but Jeanne and Stephanie will attend the NAMT Conference in NYC this year to experience the festival first and then learn about the institute procedures for selecting future submissions.
Stephanie announced the two shows selected for the Fall/Winter Incubators:
The Humble Rapture of MARY ANNING, "Princess of Paleontology" (who sold sea shells by the sea shore), music, book & lyrics by Laurie Klatcher
Juiced!, music, book & lyrics by Jeanne Drennan
A brief synopsis of both shows can be found HERE on our Hot Metal Musical Showcase page.
The final matter was about plans for 2019; we have some funding from the Opportunity Fund for a workshop of a musical (although we'll have to raise matching funds for that to happen). And at the moment we're anticipating the third edition of Hot Metal Musicals in 2019.
ONLINE DONATIONS made through Fractured Atlas to support MTAP are accepted and appreciated.
