We're delighted to announce the winners of the Stiles + Drewe Prize 2017 following a wonderful gala with Mercury Musical Developments (MMD) and Stephen Sondheim Society at the Noël Coward on Sunday 11th June.
Ben Glasstone is the recipient of our second Mentorship Award for his musical Reanimator. This Award is generously supported by our friends at Music Theatre International - Europe. We will be working with Ben over the next twelve months to develop the show. He will benefit from monthly writers' labs with MMD, a week-long writing retreat with us at Ants' house in France and two Progress Labs where he will present sections of the show in front of an industry panel and his writing peers. The year culminates with a showcase presentation at The Other Palace in 2018.
Tom Lees and Claire Rivers were awarded the Stiles + Drewe Prize for Best New Song for 'Gerry and Me' from their musical PS, I Love You. They receive £1,000 to put towards the development of their work.
Congratulations to Ben, Tom and Claire and huge thanks to our other finalists.
