You’ve written a great musical….now what? How do you get producers to give your musical a look? What do you need before you’re ready to approach producers and theatres?

This four-session Boot Camp is designed to get you up and running in about a month. (One session a week.) You can complete the Boot Camp faster if you like…but not slower. You can start any time you like, but once you do start, there’s no procrastinating. New Musicals Inc.’s Executive Director Scott Guy will put your feet to the fire as you complete and polish the following, all of which you’ll want:

One-sentence elevator pitch
One-minute pique pitch
Five-minute hook pitch
100 word synopsis
half-page synopsis
Madison Avenue paragraph pitch
song-synopsis (“record jacket”)
demographic description
query letter
authors’ bio

You’ll also get all the knowledge and materials you need to prepare:

a successful demo (how many songs? how well produced?)
website to present your musical
legal protection/copyright
a targeted list of producers and theatres to approach
secondary targets: festivals, workshops, contests
a timetable of your next steps

Here’s how it will work:
