Into the Works is a showcase promoting the best in new musical theatre from some of the finest and most exciting composers and writers working in the UK today.
Musical theatre, gig theatre, music theatre – we believe that when words, actions and music collide, storytelling comes alive.
Join us for an hour of stories, characters, scenes and songs as composers, writers and performers showcase exciting new work in its earliest incarnations. We’ll give you context of the work, scenes leading up to songs, and introduce you to writers of all different genres. Musical theatre isn’t just what you think it is…
Be transported to different worlds as we dive into the works.
Music Box Theatre creates dynamic, thought-provoking and entertaining pieces of theatre incorporating live music. We believe that music plays an integral role in our lives and so should play an integral role in our storytelling. We're passionate about new writing, love creating new work and strive to push the boundaries of what musical theatre looks like.
