On Nov. 12-14, UNCG School of Theatre will present “Hear Our Voices: An Inclusive Celebration of New Musical Theatre.” The production is a brand-new song cycle which consists of unpublished music written and composed by BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, and people of color), disabled, female and LGBTQIA+ (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Pansexual, Transgender, Genderqueer, Queer, Intersexed, Agender, Asexual, and Ally community) artists from all over the country.

The project was brought to life by UNCG Theatre faculty Erin Farrell Speer and Dominick Amendum, both of whom coordinate the newly-founded BFA Musical Theatre program for the School of Theatre. “Hear Our Voices” will be recorded and available for on-demand viewing.
