To be both a national and international leader in the development of new musical theatre by connecting groundbreaking shows, writers and artists with top tier students, faculty and staff.
The American Music Theatre Project (AMTP) at Northwestern University brings together the nation’s leading artists in music theatre to work with Northwestern’s faculty, staff and students. AMTP’s goal is to nourish and invigorate American music theatre by developing and producing new musicals; increasing opportunities for education and training with Northwestern’s theatre, music theatre and dance programs; and creating new connections between professional and academic communities.
AMTP was founded by Dominic Missimi and Stuart Oken in May 2005 in Northwestern’s School of Communication to bring together the nation’s leading artists in music theatre to work in collaboration with Northwestern’s faculty and students.
Founded in 1851, Northwestern University is one of the country’s leading private research and teaching universities. With its impressive infrastructure of facilities, faculty and students, and its progressive methods for teaching and learning, Northwestern welcomes artists and projects that benefit from a nurturing creative process and a means of introducing new work to the broader creative community.
