The Lied Center for Performing Arts will host the fourth biennial ASCAP/Grow a Show New Musical Theatre Workshop Sept. 10-12.

The workshop seeks new musical theater works with the potential to be developed into full-scale productions. The Lied Center is accepting submissions from writing teams across the country. Submissions must be received by May 1 to be considered.

“The Lied Center is honored to be one of only a handful of locations nationwide to host an ASCAP New Musical Theatre Workshop,” said Bill Stephan, executive director of the Lied Center. “As a direct result of this event, Lincoln is gaining a reputation among the musical theater community as a safe and friendly place for artists to take risks and develop their new work before they take it to the Broadway stage.”

The Lied Center and ASCAP have again called upon world-renowned Broadway industry experts to serve as workshop panelists. Panelists include Scott Frankel and Michael Korie (“Grey Gardens,” “War Paint” and “Far From Heaven”).

Instructions for submission can be found here. A winner will be notified by July 12.
