DUNDEE Rep announced as next Cameron Mackintosh Resident Composer Placement

July 18th, 2018


We are thrilled that the next resident composer placement will take place at Dundee Rep Theatre – the scheme’s first Scottish-based placement. The placement will begin in October 2018.

The successful recipient will receive an all-inclusive fee of £11,000, plus £500 towards travel expenses.

The fee is calculated to cover 6 months of your time, but this can be spread across a 9-12 month period. The exact timetable and the projects to be worked on will be agreed in consultation between the composer and the venue’s Artistic Planning team, but it’s expected the successful applicant would be based at the theatre for a significant portion of at least six months.

To be eligible to apply:

You will need to be a musical theatre composer who has already had some work professionally produced (which can include paid work for a drama college or other training institute). You must be resident in the UK. We are looking for a clear on-going commitment to working in musical theatre. By musical theatre, we mean anything where music and song drive narrative. We encourage applicants from the broadest diversity of cultural heritages.
