Composer-Librettist Studio at New Dramatists

We are looking for composers to apply for our Composer-Librettist Studio to be held at New Dramatists in NYC beginning Wednesday, January 24 and ending Friday, February 9, 2018. The Composer-Librettist Studio, presented in cooperation with Nautilus Music-Theater, is a developmental Studio on collaboration. It is designed to provide an opportunity for five New Dramatists playwrights and five composers to work with professional performers, exploring the possibilities and basic elements of music-theater. The studio is co-directed by Ben Krywosz (Artistic Director of Nautilus Music-Theater) and music director Roger Ames. This program is intended primarily for composers who have professional experience. Applications from graduate students may be considered in rare circumstances, but it is unlikely that undergraduate students will be considered. For the days worked they’d be considered a W-2 Employee of New Dramatists. The pay on offer for their participation is $1,300 gross wages minus applicable Federal (including Social Security and Medicare), State and City taxes.
