NBC Universal Global Talent Development and Inclusion - faces of the talent

In collaboration with NBCUniversal’s Global Talent Development & Inclusion division, DreamWorks Theatricals and Music Theatre International have teamed together to help nurture emerging writers.

Working Together

DreamWorks Theatricals and Music Theatre International work together to produce Broadway productions. DMTI is responsible for many successful showings that include Hamilton, the Lion King, and Wicked.

With the increase in demand for new shows, it has become harder to get shows on Broadway sage. DMTI provides a flexible production option to produce shows without being restricted by a season or time frame.

New Writers Program

They design the Emerging Writers Program for people who want to break into the professional industry or improve their skillset in general.

MTI will combine forces with a consortium of writers, composers, and lyricists to discover creative teams to create musical adaptations of DreamWorks Animation films distributed through the MTI library.

Anyone with writing enthusiasm and who works with others in a team may apply to the one-year paid program.

These authors and writing teams will have the opportunity to benefit from the Studio’s dedication to sharing tales that represent the variety of its viewers.

DreamWorks has touched, affected, and challenged audiences for more than two decades.

DreamWorks/MTI is pleased to dedicate this extensive library to authors, composers, and lyricists of all backgrounds who have participated in America’s history musical theatre for marginalized groups in collaboration with MTI. They are excited to help promote emerging musical theatre talent.

Many performances produced by MTI’s Broadway Junior are avenues for young people to try their hands at the theatrical arts either as performers or attendees.

They combine fresh voices with content from beloved tales that we hope will adapt for the younger market. They connect artists and their audiences in a more meaningful way.


Applicants that have shown creativity and achievement will create a new DreamWorks Animation movie for the stage, working with DreamWorks Theatricals executives and prominent industry ambassadors.

Additionally, the program features roundtable talks, master workshops, and individual interactions with different industry experts and agents.

Previous Works

When Shrek the Musical, Madagascar, and the Prince of Egypt all received musical treatments, the project was known as DreamWorks Theatricals, a subsidiary of Universal Theatrical Group.

There have been productions of Wicked, Billy Elliot, Bring It On. The Musical, and Irving Berlin’s Holiday Inn on Broadway and in the West End with UTG.

Music Theatre International is one of the world’s major theatrical licensing companies and giving theatres across the globe the right to perform a selection of musicals from Broadway and beyond. The company also offers many other musical-theater services, including composing scores, writing playbooks, and developing new productions.

Any actor or actress who is at least 18 years old can participate in this contest. They cannot have performed on Broadway or the West End during the last five years.
