Lied Center seeks submissions for Grow a Show workshop

Lied Center for Performing Arts

The Lied Center for Performing Arts will host the third biennial ASCAP/Grow a Show New Musical Theatre Workshop Sept. 11-14.

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

“The Lied Center is honored to be one of only three 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 other ASCAP/Grow a Show workshops are in Los Angeles and New York.

Returning panelists for the Lied Center workshop include Kevin Bannerman, the co-creator of “Ice Age” and regular panelist for the Los Angeles ASCAP New Musicals Workshop; Karen Morrow, actress, singer and Broadway legend; and Stephen Bray, composer and lyricist for the Tony Award-winning musical “The Color Purple” and frequent Madonna collaborator.

Instructions for submission can be found here. A winner will be selected by July 14.
