'The Sitzprobe' returns with a vengeance with 4 short musical excerpts!
This year, UMMTA is gathering a passionate team of performers to develop new original music theatre work. The projects themselves may be anywhere from a fully drafted musical, or a collection of songs with a basic story, ready to be tested out on stage. ‘The Sitzprobe’ provides writers/composers the opportunity to trial their works in a creative environment and fosters their development by getting their ideas on stage.
From 25th-27th May 2022
