MPTheatricals are committed to developing, commissioning and supporting LGBTQ+ writers and musicals. As a queer led company, we believe it is vital more queer stories are told away from stereotype and cliche by:
Platforming New Queer Writing through concerts and development sessions.
Commissioning and Developing stories with writers. Our first queer musical commission, Is He Musical by Jude Taylor is currently in development and I am working to create further commissions in the coming months.
Showcasing Queer Talent at every corner through showcases and ensuring casting processes are transparent, fair and ensure protected characteristics are met.
Musicals In Development
BY LEWIS CORNAY
Submissions & Concepts:
We are constantly looking to connect with writers who are developing or have written a musical where LGBTQ+ characters/narratives are at the forefront.
At present, we cannot consider projects with a cast greater than six.
To share an idea be it developed or a rough concept, contact us!

QUEERME An Evening of LGBTQ+ Storytelling
Live: 11th February | On Demand: 12th-28th February
In celebration of LGBTQ+ History Month, MPTheatricals present an evening exploring queer history through a series of brand new songs.
A group of songwriters have been commissioned to respond to snapshots of queer history. From forgotten historical figures to exciting experiences, the evening takes us on a journey through queer time, bringing lost histories and humans to life in an intimate concert hosted by director Matt Powell.
The concert streams live on 11th February and will be available on demand for two weeks. 50% of profits will be donated to Aitch's Surgery Fund (details available at https://www.gofundme.com/f/25pdwf9xtc)
