As we near the end of our second round and sixth year of ACE National Portfolio Funding we thought we’d reflect on just some of our work with new British musicals since 2006 when we began as an annual showcase for new writing.
SHOWCASES 2006 – 2009
Where it all began! Over the four years we showcased 30 new musicals by emerging writers, firstly at Upstairs at the Gatehouse and then at Trafalgar Studios. There were some familiar writers and composers amongst them… DOUGAL IRVINE, CRAIG ADAMS, RICHARD TAYLOR, SUSANNAH PEARSE, LAURENCE MARK WYTHE, LESLEY ROSS, MATT BRIND plus some fab musicals written by actors who are since better known for their roles on stage and screen including CUSH JUMBO, AARON LEE LAMBERT, TIM DRIESEN.
In 2008 we started long term support of the shows in our portfolio, many of which we are still actively promoting and supporting today. Here are just some of our show histories so far…
And don’t forget all our current works-in-progress that are heading towards their first full production in 2018/19.
