The UK MT DIRECTORY is the sister site of NEW UK MUSICALS. The directory is a place where everyone involved and interested in new musical theatre can find like-minded folks. Unlike Spotlight, it's a public facing site, and meant as much for performers and creatives as it is for fans. It's a place where performers can find writers, where writers can find creatives, and where the work of the new musical theatre community in the UK can be celebrated and amplified.
The UK MT DIRECTORY and NEW UK MUSICALS were founded by Darren Clark, a multi-award winning UK musical theatre writer. Through many conversations with colleagues, including members of MMD, BML and Alumni of BEAM and Adam Lenson's Signal, we realised that there were some missing pieces in the infrastructure of new musical theatre in the UK.
It seemed to make sense to create a place where Composers, Lyricists, Bookwriters, Directors, Performers, Choreographers, Movement Directors and Musical Directors could find each other.
And so the UK MT DIRECTORY was born. The directory does not charge anyone for being part of the site and anyone involved in the industry who is interested in the creation of new musical theatre in the UK is welcome to register on the site.
