Vision, Mission & Values

Vision – Musical Theatre Network – supporting and creating opportunities for new musical theatre in the UK.



 Mission –  MTN brings people and resources together to improve infrastructure and opportunities for new musical theatre in the UK. Its membership is a national network of venues, producers, colleges, organisations and individuals. In partnership with its members, MTN works to strengthen and diversify the new musical theatre sector nationwide, and so support development of the artform. MTN works with, and on behalf of, its membership to:




Advocate for increased support of new British musical theatre – greater investment in terms of money and time, more productions and growing audiences


Facilitate improved communication, more connections and closer collaboration within a diverse, UK-wide musical theatre community


 Encourage best practice in staging new musical theatre and nurturing the artform’s development




Innovation – we have a passion for work that takes a fresh look at the form

Diversity – we are committed to supporting work that reflects a variety of perspectives


 Reach – our members, both individual and organisational, are drawn from all over the UK, and beyond


 Connectivity – we encourage connections across creative practice

 Partnership – we work in collaboration with a wide variety of organisations to achieve our goals
