Steve and I have submitted our four songs from Possessed to the Stephen Sondheim Competition.
Every year students from all the top drama schools compete for the Performer of the Year Award. They perform two songs, one a Sondheim and one from a new musical. MMD submit the best musical songs to the competition, so we have to get chosen by MMD first. The competition is held in a West End Theatre and last year it was at the Trafalgar Studios in Whitehall. For the writers this is a chance to have your work heard and also to compete for the Stiles and Drewe Best New Song Award. They are featured above in a press photograph by Alastair Muir from last year's competition.
Now we wait until April to find out whether we are through the first round.
