Musical Commissioning Hub
Let’s make Pitlochry the West End of Scotland!
Do you have the next great Scottish musical in you?
Our new producing partnership with Capital Theatres is looking for exciting new Scottish musicals! Through collaboration with musicians, writers and artists, we’re aiming to develop Scottish talent and help to create new works that will grace our stages – and venues across the country – for years.
Could one of them be yours? Submit an outline for your new musical, alongside details of previous work, to be considered by a panel of experts.
The panel assessing submissions features multi award-winning composer and creator of musicals, Howard Goodall; multi-award winning Scottish singer and actor, Barbara Dickson; broadcaster and lead singer of Deacon Blue, Ricky Ross; Robert Softley Gale, Artistic Director of Birds of Paradise theatre company who brought us My Left/Right Foot; writer and Director of the Royal Lyceum Theatre Edinburgh, David Greig (Charlie and the Chocolate Factory and most recently Local Hero); theatre director and radio DJ Matthew Xia; award-winning producer of SIX and The Play That Goes Wrong, Kenny Wax; Olivier award-winner Katie Brayben, acclaimed for her role as Carole King in the London production of Beautiful; co-director of Freedom Studios Aisha Khan, and Co-Chairs Fiona Gibson and Pitlochry Festival Theatre’s Artistic Director, Elizabeth Newman.
Together they bring a diverse background and range of expertise in music, musical theatre, creative writing and performance to assess and guide the submissions and the process.
Submissions for 2021 have closed. Keep checking here for details of the next round of submissions.
The launch of the Musical Commissioning Hub has been made possible through investment from the Performing Arts Venue Relief Fund and patron support.
