BEAM 2023 is at Oxford Playhouse May 25–26.
It’s the UK’s biggest showcase of new musical theatre. Selected from an extensive nationwide search, excerpts and songs from 29 shows in development will be presented, alongside a variety of panel discussions, workshops, and networking opportunities.
As the largest gathering of the UK new musical theatre community, BEAM2023 brings together writers, producers, composers, venues, investors, agents and development partners. To date, more than 35 musicals from previous BEAMs have gone on to be fully staged, including new West End arrival Operation Mincemeat.
