Get ready, he’s going to do it again.

One year ago, Ryan Scott Oliver took us all to school.

In our “Take Charge of Your ’21” Challenge, the Award-winning and produced-everywhere Composer-Lyricist, taught us his formula for eliminating writer’s block.

His presentation was the most popular of the week.  

This year, we’re not doing a challenge.

But because Ryan’s presentation helped so many of you, we asked him if he’d do something exclusive for us this year . . .

He did not say yes.  

He said, “Hell, yes!”

See, Ryan shares our mission of helping TheaterMakers to more theater and better theater.  That’s why he’s an adjunct faculty member at Pace University and the Artistic Director of The Pasadena Musical Theatre Program. 

And that’s why he created a free, exclusive 3-part video series on writing musicals only for people on this list.  

In this quick three-part series, Ryan addresses:

  • The three most important things involved in writing a musical. 
  • Learn how to find solid collaborators, avoid conflict, and maximize your team’s success. 
  • Writing an interesting and hard-hitting score for your musical – and avoiding becoming just another tuneless flop. 
  • Giving your stories and book structures a solid “check-up,” and how to effectively develop your show toward production. 

And he does it, in his usual, inspirational, “let’s kick butt” style. So be prepared to end this series ready to jump back into your writing, with better tools to create a better musical. 

I’d bet money that if you watch these videos, you’ll finish your show (or that rewrite you know you need to do), faster than if you do NOT watch these videos.  

Here’s the catch – I’m mindful of people’s inboxes in 2022. So, to get the videos, you have to raise your hand for them. We’re only going to send them to people who have said, “YES I WANT THEM.”

You do that, by clicking this link.


And starting on Tuesday, January 11th, you’ll get three, quick, easy-to-digest and actionable ways on how to write a better musical.

Click here and prepare to get schooled by Ryan Scott Oliver. Again!
