Workshop of New Musicals in Development

As part of our commitment to finding and developing exceptional New Musicals, every year NYMT offers young performers the chance to be part of creating and workshopping new pieces. These week-long projects are led by NYMT’s Creative Team alongside composers, lyricists and book writers, and culminate in a performance to friends and family. It’s an amazing opportunity to learn about the nuts and bolts of new musical theatre and to have input into the future of new musical theatre.

Music and lyrics by Stephen Sondheim
Book by James Lapine

As champions of Stephen Sondheim's work, we are excited to present INTO THE WOODS, his collaboration with James Lapine: an innovative and intricate retelling of well known storybook characters. This thought-provoking allegory is relavant for audiences of all ages through the ages, and is widely regarded as a modern classic. The Tony Award-winning book and score are enchanting in their poignancy, touching on the universal themes of family and friendship; love and loyalty;  belonging and betrayal.

The story follows a Baker and his wife who wish to have a child: Cinderella who wishes to attend the King's Festival, and Jack who wishes his cow would give milk. When the Baker and his wife learn that they cannot have a child because of a witch's curse, the two set off on a journey to break the curse. Everyone's wish is granted, but the consequences of their actions return to haunt them later with disastrous results.

One of Sondheim's most popular works, INTO THE WOODS is a musically sophisticated show with the opportunity to feature actors adept at dark comedy. Designers will especially enjoy highlighting the fantastical elements of this magical word.


A brand-new musical by the British writing partnership of Jim Barne and Kit Buchan, Catastrophe Bay will take you to another time and place populated by exotic characters from around the world. With a backdrop of smugglers and wreckers, are the villagers as friendly as they seem?

Deep in the wilds of Cornwall lies the tiny fishing village of Newfrock. The inhabitants are a curious and mischievous gaggle of misfits – a smuggling schoolmistress, the sinful priest, reprobate orphans and singing fishermen – who, despite their differences, abide by a strange patchwork of rituals and beliefs in order to protect the village’s secrets.

When newcomer Murdo Moxy – freelance crook and con-artist – enters their midst with his roguish daughter in tow, it sets off a series of events for the townsfolk to grapple with. Inspired by a vast language of British and European folk songs, Catastrophe Bay is as rich and hearty as a night in a candlelit tavern, whilst storms rage outside.


OUR HOUSE with music and lyrics by the iconic British band Madness (with one song, It Must Be Love, written by Labi Siffre), and book by playwright Tim Firth is based in 1980s Camden Town. It tells the story of London lad Joe Casey, who, on the night of his sixteenth birthday, takes Sarah, the girl of his dreams, out on their first date. The story then splits into two different paths that Joe could follow.


Featuring a collection of top hits by Madness including House of Fun, Baggy Trousers, Driving in my Car, It Must Be Love and of course Our House, this show is a modern British classic and one we are proud to present, particularly as we, like Madness, are soon to celebrate the 50th anniversay year since our inception.

Based in 1980s Camden Town, the Our House tells the story of London lad Joe Casey, who, on the night of his sixteenth birthday, takes Sarah, the girl of his dreams, out on their first date. In an effort to impress her with bravado, he breaks into a building site overlooking his home on Casey Street, which is owned by Mister Pressman, a high-end property developer. The police turn up, at which point Joe’s life splits into two: the Good Joe, who stays to help, and Bad Joe, who flees.
