MMD and MTN have been awarded funding from the Cameron Mackintosh Foundation to support four placements as part of The Cameron Mackintosh Resident Composer Scheme over 2023-2025.  We are delighted to announce the next two placements: MAST Mayflower Studios will host a two-person Resident Musical Theatre Writing Team to start in June 2024, and National Theatre of Scotland will host a Resident Musical Theatre Composer to start in September 2024.

Through this scheme, professional musical theatre writers are paired with a company and given the opportunity to be involved in a range of work which could include writing/composing assignments on the host company’s projects, shadowing development/rehearsal processes, and working on development of their own musical theatre material. Recent hosts have included the Royal Shakespeare Company; Theatr Clwyd; Octagon Theatre; Hope Mill Theatre; The Lowry; and British Youth Music Theatre.

The successful recipients will receive an all-inclusive fee of £13,000 per individual writer, thanks to the generous support of The Mackintosh Foundation.
