The mission of The Festival of New American Musicals is to celebrate the renaissance of American Musical Theater throughout Southern California?s many diverse cities and communities by producing a comprehensive festival of new American musicals during the Spring and Summer of 2008 -- and subsequent festivals in 2009 and 2010.
The Festival of New American Musicals will bring new American musicals back into the mainstream through supportive collaborations with theaters, concert halls, schools, and universities that produce their own musical theater work and participate in a countywide celebration of a beloved American art form.
We want to identify Southern California as a capitol for the resurgence of new American Musical Theater.
The Festival of New American Musicals was established by a group of committed volunteer performance art professionals and veterans dedicated to the idea that there is a wealth of new musical theater talent in America. A team of "creative partners," including theaters, concert halls, schools, and universities have agreed to produce their own musical theater work to participate in the city-wide festival showcasing the work of this new generation of creators. The festival will include a variety of events, from full theater productions, to readings, workshops, concerts, seminars and master classes. The festival will also offer an opportunity for multi-cultural local talent to stage new works for an ethnically, culturally, and geographically diverse audience. The requested funds will support the Festival's 2005 4th Quarter Planning Process including creating informational presentations packages, gathering and convening the creative partners, creating the selection criteria, conducting the selection process, finalizing the festival plan, marketing, webdesign, and a portion of support staff salaries.

I am the parent of two sons now in college (both theatre majors). Over the past few years we have followed this organization and attended several events (including a few workshops).

This organization does really great work! One of their very best programs provides opportunities for high school and college students who are interested in composing musicals. While there are lots of training programs for performing in musical theater, programs for composing musicals are very rare... more »
