The National Musical Theatre Competition (NMTC) was launched in 2011 as the first national competition for the emerging professional musical theatre soloist. NMTC has provided industry connections to past competitors and winners that have led to their success on Broadway and other venues. The biennial competition takes place in conjunction with the NATS Winter Workshop in New York City, expressly hosted in proximity to the music industry’s top professionals.
The 2022 first prize winner will be awarded more than $5,000 in prizes in addition to a concert at the 57th NATS National Conference in Chicago, July 1-6, 2022, and a $1,000 gift certificate from Hal Leonard. Second prize will be awarded $2,500 plus a $500 gift certificate from Hal Leonard. The third and fourth prizes include the Louise Lerch Prize ($1,000) and the Bill Hayes Prize ($750), respectively.
The preliminary rounds of the competition took place during October and November in New York City (National Opera Center) and online, with a video submission option for participants who could not travel to the live audition site.
Event sponsors include Hal Leonard Corporation, Manhattan School of Music, and the Foundation Heritage Fund of the NATS Endowment. Thank you to our sponsors!
