Cleveland Public Theatre (CPT) is now accepting applications for The Kulas Foundation Theatre Composer Initiative, a yearlong fellowship program providing early-career composers with first-hand experience creating music and sound design for theatre.
This initiative engages composers/designers in a collaborative process, under the guidance of the show producer and director, to compose and produce original music for full productions and works-in-development in CPT’s Season, and to learn about other parts of the creative and production process of theatre. Composers gain hands-on learning experiences through sound design opportunities.
The program is intended to significantly grow CPT’s capacity for developing original music and sound design, and to support the growth and emergence of local artists.
To ensure the development of work past this residency, both the Composer/Designer and Cleveland Public Theatre will retain rights to composed materials developed through the Theatre Composer Initiative.
