22 Submissions for 2022!

Written By Melvin Tunstall III

I just opened an email from the National Alliance for Musical Theater alerting me that submissions for the 2022 Festival are due by December 20th and I had to smile as I archived the message. I was lucky enough to have one of my new musicals in this year’s festival (Senior Class- you can watch the excerpt here!) after appearing in the 2018 Songwriter’s Showcase alongside my Co-Composer Greg Borowsky. 

The NAMT Festival offered us the exposure we never imagined possible in such a short time. When Playbill announced our inclusion in this year’s batch of new musicals, we received a call from a major Broadway producer just to let us know he was looking forward to seeing our work. Within days of the actual festival, he came aboard as our Lead Producer.

The funny thing is, we had no plans to submit to this year’s festival. We received a call from our NAMT contact just checking in on how we were handling the pandemic and what was the latest with the piece. I shamefully admitted that we had paused work on the show as Greg was working on the new Mandela musical and I was not handling pandemia very well.. She encouraged us to apply anyway, and here we are a little over a year later meeting with Broadway producers and General Managers!
