Celebrating a Decade of Nurturing the New
Weston’s nationally respected New Works Programs reflect a commitment to the responsible development of new plays and musicals in our unique and supportive rural setting. Programs include an annual New Musical Award, Artists Retreat, Workshops and Full Productions including but not limited to world premieres. The theatre company also owns and is in the process of transforming the five-acre Walker Farmstead in Weston into a year-round Center for the Arts for production and play development.
Weston New Works Programs are supported in part by the Anton Family Foundation; Dramatists Play Service, Inc.; the Frederick Loewe Foundation; Stacey Mindich Productions LLC; Music Theatre International; the National Endowment for the Arts; the Rodgers and Hammerstein Foundation; the Shubert Foundation; Tams-Witmark Music Library; and many generous individuals.
