The Sappho Project

Making original w*rk visible

*work by women and TGNC (Trans & Gender Non-Conforming) musical theatre book writers, composers, and lyricists 


Our Mission

Who We Are

At The Sappho Project, we provide the platform for women and TGNC musical theatre book writers, composers, and lyricists to share their work. We want our industry to more accurately reflect all perspectives, stories, and experiences. Don't you?

By providing simple and direct access to resources, we are seeking to make original work visible. We support early career artists by producing new works and connecting artists to collaborators and mentors.
