The Other Palace is delighted to announce the return of its podcast this Spring dedicated to supporting and showcasing new British musical theatre. Each episode will feature music and exclusive interviews with the writers and creatives of two new musicals, curated and hosted by director Alex Jackson and The Other Palace Programme Manager, Kiki Stevenson.


Formally All That Scratch, the podcast returns in a new format and with a new name to delve deeper into the creative processes of writing a new musical. Previous shows featured have since premiered in the West End, and had extensive productions off West End, regionally and internationally.


The Other Palace Artistic Director, Paul Taylor-Mills, says ‘Supporting the genesis and development of new musical theatre is integral to what we do at The Other Palace. We're always looking to nurture talent and we are committed to providing opportunities for creative voices to share their work. I am delighted we can grow the podcast from its first iteration to provide an even better platform for new work to engage with wider audiences and ultimately find its path to full production.'


The Making A Musical podcast will release Season 3 this June, so subscribe & follow the podcast on Spotify, Apple Podcasts, or Google Podcasts now to ensure you don't miss it! 


Submissions to be featured on the podcast are open to musicals at all stages of creation, aiming for development and/or premiere in the UK. Pieces will be assessed based on their artistic quality, relevance, inclusivity, and future life potential.
