Discovering, developing and reimagining musical theatre is at the heart of The Other Palace. We’re passionate about theatre and want our spaces to encourage and nurture the next generation of theatre-makers and musicals. Alongside our programme of fully produced work we will be opening the doors to the development process with a range of initiatives, from connecting theatre-makers to staging workshop performances.
Our Mission Is
- To be a platform to discover, develop and promote musicals from within the UK and beyond.
- A home where we can break rules and work is encouraged to be exhaustively tried out.
- To be a safe destination for theatre makers and existing musical theatre initiatives to work and play free from pressure.
- To develop an audience for new musicals in the UK by placing the audience at the core of the development process.
We meet regularly to discuss and listen to all submissions and if we feel that The Other Palace could support your project we will be in touch to discuss this further.
For submissions to be considered by The Other Palace team we require the following information.
- A short synopsis
- The journey of the show to date
- Two contrasting songs that best show off your piece
- Your creative team if you have one in place

The Other Masterclass
Each West End mentor leads a workshop focusing on a different aspect of performance providing feedback and their wealth of experience to the performers who are chosen to work with the mentor through an online application process.
The Other Masterclass is not just aimed at the performers chosen to work on stage, but at anyone who loves to perform or has an interest in working in theatre. Audiences should come armed with a notepad and questions to glean the tricks of the trade and insider knowledge from the West End professionals.
NEXT DATE: To be announced
Pitch Days offer artists and creative teams the chance to present 10 minutes of their new musical to The Other Palace programming team and special industry professionals.
These Pitch Days are aimed at people who prefer to share their work 'live' rather than submitting their musical online. Following the day, the panel will provide written feedback on how we suggest you develop the piece. Please note that The Other Palace is unable to financially commit or produce your musical but we are dedicated to facilitating the development of your work.
NEXT DATE: To be announced
We look forward to hearing from you!
