Andy Collopy is a theatre musician who works primarily on new musicals. Most recently, he was the substitute conductor and rehearsal pianist for the first national tour of The Lightning Thief: The Percy Jackson Musical.
Andy also recently served as music supervisor for No One Called Ahead, a new musical film by Paul Gordon available from Streaming Musicals. He worked on a number of Gordon’s previous projects, including as the associate music director of the Off-Broadway production of Daddy Long Legs. In 2018, Andy was the music associate and copyist of the world premiere of Knights’ Tale, which played to sold-out audiences in Tokyo and Osaka.
His international credits also include the Toronto world premiere of Maltby and Shire’s Sousatzka, on which he was the associate music director. He has since worked with the writing team on a number of readings of their new musicals.
Among Andy’s other frequent collaborators are the writers Sam Carner and Derek Gregor, both individually and as a team. He was on the music team of their Off-Broadway show Unlock’d, and was the music supervisor for the premier of their musical Toast in Bloomington, Indiana. Andy is the arranger and orchestrator of Carner’s musical Barnyard Follies, and music directed the premiere reading of Gregor and lyricist Selda Sahin’s show Modern, which was part of the LiveRead series at the University of Southern California.
