Extended: Five More Days For Open Submissions For 2019 TRU Voices New Musicals Reading Series

Extended: Five More Days For Open Submissions For 2019 TRU Voices New Musicals Reading Series
Theater Resources Unlimited (TRU) announces open submissions for the 2019 TRU Voices New Musicals Reading Series. Submissions for the 2019 TRU Voices New Musicals Reading Series close August 20, 2018.
Let us pay for a developmental reading of your new musical! Created to nurture producers as well as writers, TRU VOICES seeks producer-driven projects, and also matches writers with producers. Each reading is followed by a “Dollars and Sense” panel discussion with prominent New York producers, general managers and artistic directors focusing on potential venues, marketing and budgeting of the work. According to TRU executive Director Bob Ost, “TRU welcomes a diverse range of new works, as long as they are full length (minimum of 80 minutes), and have not been performed in front of a paying audience in the New York area. We are equally interested in commercial works and the non-traditional and unconventional, and we have a special interest in finding works with multi-cultural significance.”
“I direct a lot of these readings. But the event last night (and the whole experience) had to have been one of the most helpful, well thought out, useful readings I’ve ever been a part of.”
~Jeremy Dobrish, director (Hell Hole Honeys)
“Wanted to say thank you for what turned out to be a great reading and a great experience…. Ended up loving the intimacy of the theatre and the panel talkback. My whole TRU experience has been wonderful.”~Peter Kellogg, writer (Chasing Nicolette)
 
“Filled with gratitude to you and to your TRU reading series…. The panels you conducted rank among the best in all my years in theater. Too often such events bog down in pontification. You managed to guide and focus the dialogue – and to keep it constructive. Liked hearing the techniques and perspectives of producers. All of them (and you) enlightened us in one way or another.” ~Rob Ackerman, writer (Volleygirls)
