A special collaborative partnership of National Alliance for Musical Theatre, Baldwin Wallace University Music Theatre Program, and Beck Center for the Arts brings you “5 x 15: Five World Premiere Fifteen Minute Musicals,” virtual production.
Scott Spence, Artistic Director of Beck Center for the Arts in Lakewood, Ohio:
"Pandemic or no, we were determined that this 10th anniversary of the Beck Center/Baldwin Wallace collaboration must go on. With the addition of the National Alliance for Musical Theatre as a partner, we could not be more excited to offer the World Premiers of 5 brand new musicals. Composers and lyricists from around the country have been working with us since August 2020 and it's thrilling to put all of this collaboration to work on a national level.”
Collaborator Victoria Bussert, head of Baldwin Wallace Music Theatre Program in Berea, Ohio:
“I was very honored to be asked to read a large number of the 15-minute musicals for NAMT and to serve on the final selection committee. The creativity of these pieces is truly inspiring; it's thrilling for our BWMT students to have the unique opportunity to work with our guest directors and these fantastic writing teams.”
