Mercury Musical Developments: Talent Development Fund 2020

Mercury Musical Developments (MMD) & Musical Theatre Network (MTN) are the UK’s only membership organisations dedicated to nurturing high quality, new British musical theatre writers and to developing the sector which allows their work to achieve its widest potential.

As membership organisations, MMD & MTN support professional artists writing, developing and staging new musical theatre in the UK. Strengthening the sector and artform development through year-round talent and professional development opportunities, networking, showcasing and advocacy to help new, excellent and diverse musical theatre achieve its potential.

2020 – 2021:

BEAMFollow-Spot is a UK wide professional development programme following on from BEAM, our national showcase of new work, designed to champion excellent musical theatre creators.

BEAM2020 will showcase an unprecedented stylistic breadth of 80 new British musical theatre writers from throughout the UK. BFS continues this journey of professional and talent development. Music creators include those already well established in musical theatre, plus emerging talent, including writers of world, hip hop/rap, folk, jazz and electronica exploring musical theatre for the first time. BFS will be nationally focussed with two regional hubs in Scotland (Glasgow) and NW England (Manchester) and a London showcase. They will also provide craft and career development for music creators who are one step removed from being ready for the main BEAM showcase.
