Through the company, commissioned projects have the opportunity to undergo additional development or production opportunities. The fund offers financial and dramaturgical support to creators in devising and developing the first draft of a new musical. Ideas that exemplify the most potential are awarded an $8,000 commission to cover a five-week writing period, and a private reading of the first draft. Significant contributions like this give the Musical Stage Company the means to confidently pursue their overarching goal of establishing Canada as a leader in the development and staging of musical theatre.
