Writing For Maverick

At the present time we are experiencing a high volume of submissions – so we are not accepting further submissions until advised (and we do apologise for the frustration this can cause for writers and composers.)

It is always best to contact us by email (tahlia@maverickmusicals.com) prior to sending anything to find out if and when we are holding our reading and assessment rounds.

Two Act Musicals

Suitable for Primary Schools, intermediate Schools and High Schools. They must contain all original music with six or more songs in each act.

Submission formats

Here’s how to make your chances more advantageous. Our reading panel can only accept works that have been through public performance first. In other words, your show has been through the rigours of work-shopping and has been presented in its finished form to an audience. Ready for submission? Make sure you send hard copies, as we do not accept attachments via email, and include where appropriate:

  • a typed script
  • a character list
  • a synopsis
  • a piano score
  • a list of instrumentation scored for
  • example of the printed instrumentation
  • the full running time
  • a CD of the musical numbers
  • a viewing recording of a performance if possible
  • any reviews garnered
  • the age group you consider it’s written for
  • always include a stamped, self addressed envelope if you require the safe return of materials

PS: Never send an original of anything to anyone – always send a copy!
