Theatre Royal Stratford East is opening up its flagship training programme for the first time to teach budding artists how to create a musical.
The historic theatre, in Gerry Raffles Square, is looking for producers, playwrights, poets, rappers, composers, and musicians to apply for a spot on their Musical Theatre Initiative.
The intensive two-week course will be led by Fred Carl and Robert Lee from New York’s Tisch School of the Arts.
Kerry Michael, artistic director of Theatre Royal Stratford East, said: “This is the first time we’ve made an open call out to artists across the UK to take part in our Musical Theatre Initiative and it’s something we’re really excited about.
“The UK leads the world in producing some of the best contemporary music around and we want to work with these artists in getting their work to new audiences.”
