KIDSTAGE Originals: Writers

The due date for writing team 2022–2023 applications was Wednesday, September 14, 2022.

Make theatre magic! Join the writing/composing team of a brand-new original musical that you help create! We are looking for interested and committed writers, composers, and lyricists to join the writing team to create an inspiring new musical.

This year’s KIDSTAGE Originals production will be a continuation of last year’s staged read of While They Last. We are looking to add 1-2 new writers to the team as the show gets developed from a one act into a fully staged developmental production. Writing sessions take place October 2022 through February 2023 in person in Issaquah. Actors join the process in mid-February for developmental production at the end of March 2023.

Interested in being an actor? Auditions for While They Last will be held in January 2023. Please check back in December 2022 for more information.
