ND Activity
  • Board of Directors

    Board of Directors

    Each fiscal year four current resident playwrights are appointed to the Board of Directors by the Writers' Executive Committee. The playwright board members enjoy full voting and decision-making powers minus the financial requirements of non-playwright directors. They provide a valuable and artist-centered perspective on the governance of New Dramatists.

  • Composer-Librettist Studio

    Composer-Librettist Studio

    Our annual Composer-Librettist Studio focuses simultaneously on music-theatre development and the principles of collaboration, teaming five writers with five composers and five performers to develop brand-new works of musical theatre. At the end of the Studio, each playwright has worked with each composer and 25 new music-theatre pieces have been created by the group.

  • Creativity Fund

    Creativity Fund

    The Creativity Fund blends the flexibility of a one-day play reading with the intensive focus of a two-week workshop, providing ten to fifteen playwrights per year the opportunity to program three to five day workshops on an ad hoc basis. Creativity Fund workshops are structured according to each writer's needs at any stage of development and are funded through a lead grant from the Andew W. Mellon Foundation.

  • Writers' Executive Committee

    Writers' Executive Committee

    The Writers' Executive Committee is a voluntary grouping of resident playwrights who meet throughout the year to discuss and make decisions concerning the work of New Dramatists and to help guide the organization.
