Welcome to Musical Theatre Network – a membership organisation with three aims: to facilitate and support the creation of new musical theatre; to champion its role within the performing arts; and to build the community that will help to sustain it.Membership of MTN is open to all individuals and organisations working professionally within musical theatre. We run an annual awards scheme at the Edinburgh Fringe, an annual conference focusing on key industry issues, as well as regular training and networking events across the country. We work nationally but also draw members from the international community; we act as a connector between both the commercial and the subsidised sectors and we help to stimulate an ever-widening debate on the form itself.

Our work has recently secured a further three year’s worth of funding from Arts Council England –  and we continue to take an active role in representing and promoting the needs of this sector to potential partners, collaborators and funders.

We would love you to join us in helping to shape the future of musical theatre in the UK.

Our next event….

...is Negotiating Contracts, hosted in collaboration with MMD. It's taking place on 17th September and for more details, go to "What We Do" then click on "Events".

"The Musical Theatre Network/Mercury Musical Developments partnership project is exactly what we all need to stimulate everyone interested in creating new musicals to come together and forge new ways of working".
