Composer For New Stage Musical

Glasgow, UK. Apply worldwide.
Listed by View details

We are looking for a composer for a new gothic horror musical being premiered as one of 4 shows between now and next year

We are looking for a talented composer who can write modern musical theatre in the style of Frank Wildhorn (Jekyll and Hyde, Scarlet Pimpernel, Dracula) or Alan Menken (Little shop of horrors)

Check out the songs "Birth to my creation" from Frankenstein, "zu ende" or "life after life" on youtube and you'll know the style I am looking for. Really anything by Frank Wildhorn will give you a good idea of the contemporary musical theatre sound we are looking for

The ideal candidate will be able to create piano/vocal score (in notation software such as Sibelius, finale etc), orchestrations (with realistic backing tracks) and create vocal guide recordings

The ability to create vocal recordings is important so we can hear the songs as an audience would so a good singing voice would be an advantage

Applicants will be asked to compose a short excerpt from one of the shows songs. If you are successful you will be given the completed script & lyrics

This is a chance to be part of a new company creating new, exciting stage musicals. We will be producing 4 shows a year so there will be a chance to compose other shows and really build up a working relationship

So if you are experienced with writing theatre, especially musicals, talented, committed and passionate then please apply and we can take it from there
