To educate, connect, and empower musical theatre’s next generation of creators.

MTWC is a two-year, full-time educational program for emerging musical theatre writers, composers, and directors, currently housed at the Dramatists Guild of America. We foster rich collaborative relationships between students, performers passionate about developing new work, and the larger theatre industry. Our multi-award-winning faculty of working professionals offers mentorship, insight into the form of musical theater based on years of experience, and continual encouragement to explore its boundaries. MTWC is committed to providing this career and artistic support at a cost low enough to promote its students' financial independence and at a size small enough to ensure that each student receives continual individualized attention.


We gratefully accept tax-deductible contributions through our Fractured Atlas account.

Thank you for helping us support musical theatre’s future.
