join our reading committee

Bite-Sized Broadway enlists the help of a small group of readers (the Mini-Musical Reading Committee or MMRC) to read and evaluate all submissions before passing along their recommendations to Producers. To that end, we are seeking a diverse group of individuals with a strong knowledge of musical theater who are interested in joining the MMRC. We are actively engaged in finding a balance of different ages, ethnicities, gender identities, cultural backgrounds, abilities, and other demographics in order to attempt to emulate our writers and our listenership as a whole.

Committee members will be asked to commit approximately four (4) hours per week to the following activities:

  • Reading submitted musical/play materials

  • Filling out the corresponding feedback form

  • Meeting virtually with other committee members to discuss the options and helping narrow down the total submissions to the top 15 selections
