Our friends at Musical Theater Educators’ Alliance (MTEA) are launching a brand-new database aimed at connecting theatermakers with their network of universities, conservatories, and training programs around the world!
The goal for the New Works Collaboration Catalog is to provide a mutually-beneficial resource for theatermakers looking for development opportunities (or a production) and for educational institutions who are looking to produce new works with their students.
