Musical Theatre Factory is a nonprofit artist service organization dedicated to helping musical theatre makers develop and present new work in a collaborative environment free from the pressures of critical or commercial success. With a focus on peer evaluation and collaborative feedback, our Assembly Line of development programs is designed to nurture new work from an initial idea to a first full draft, and even a first production, all at no cost to the artists. Chances are, if there’s an exciting new musical on the horizon, we’re working on it!
Poetic Theater Productions seeks to define the modern genre of “poetic theater” by connecting and fostering a community of artists who are passionately creating relevant and accessible work and reinvigorating a conscious theater of language. Poetic Theater Productions offers resources and opportunities for poets, playwrights, and theater artists to create new work and see it through to production via educational workshops, developmental readings and performance. PTP seeks out and creates opportunities to connect with communities affected by the issues of topic within our productions through collaborative projects and exchanges of art and ideas.
