Discovering, developing and reimagining musical theatre is at the heart of The Other Palace. We’re passionate about theatre and want our spaces to encourage and nurture the next generation of theatre-makers and musicals. Alongside our programme of fully produced work we will be opening the doors to the development process with a range of initiatives, from connecting theatre-makers to staging workshop performances.

Our Mission Is

  • To be a platform to discover, develop and promote musicals from within the UK and beyond.
  • A home where we can break rules and work is encouraged to be exhaustively tried out.
  • To be a safe destination for theatre makers and existing musical theatre initiatives to work and play free from pressure.
  • To develop an audience for new musicals in the UK by placing the audience at the core of the development process.

Pitch Days

Pitch Days offer artists and creative teams the chance to present 10 minutes of their new musical to Artistic Director Paul Taylor-Mills, The Other Palace programming team and special industry professionals.

These Pitch Days are aimed at people who prefer to share their work 'live' rather than submitting their musical online. Following the day, the panel will provide written feedback on how we suggest you develop the piece. Please note that The Other Palace is unable to financially commit or produce your musical but we are dedicated to facilitating the development of your work.

NEXT DATE: Wenesday 7 February 2018 at 6pm.
