Musical Theatre Network, Mercury Musical Developments and Bolton Octagon Theatre have announced that Dylan Townley will be the next Cameron Mackintosh Resident Musical Theatre Composer on placement at the venue from October.

Through the scheme, musical theatre composers are paired with a producing organisation for six months and given the opportunity to develop their own new work, shadow other composers, compose for new productions and gain inside knowledge into producing theatre.

The scheme, which began in 2011, has now awarded 18 paid placements.

Dylan is a composer and lyricist, music director and pianist. Credits include How To Win Against History (Young Vic, UK tour) and Milky Peaks (Theatr Clwyd, Wales tour).
