Exploration of New Works

October 2021

Harrington Center for the Arts invites you to apply to be a featured writer during our second biannual presentation of "Exploration of New Works." Two new musicals and/or plays will be selected to present a 40 minute concert-version performance of their work for a live audience. Afterwards, the new works will be the subject of a talkback from qualified panelists. Applications will be open starting September 28, 2021 and closing on October 10 at 11:59 PM. The two final works will be selected by a committee of qualified specialists. Tentative schedule is a dress rehearsal on Wednesday, November 10, 2021 and performance on Thursday, November 11.
