What is Festival of New Musicals?

Entering into its 16th year, The Festival of New Musicals is a one-of-a-kind opportunity to see how a new musical comes to life first-hand. With about 50 artists, a dozen directors, and authors from across the county who are eager to hear what you have to say, you won’t want to miss out on the fun! This invitation-only event is for Supporting Level Members and above.

Performance

Five new musicals are presented in staged reading—rehearsed, fully sung presentations of new work, performed and directed by the region’s foremost theatre artists and guest artists from across the country—for audiences of Village Originals members and theatre professionals.

Dialogue

A moderated talkback follows every reading, audience surveys are collected for each show, and a stand-alone panel discussion takes on a central issue in the development of new musicals. A recent Festival, for instance, saw Stephen Schwartz, David Armstrong of Seattle’s 5th Avenue Theatre, Robb Hunt, Seattle Times critic Misha Berson, and others discuss the role of the critic in new musical development.

Interaction

Meet the Author and Meet the Artists events, receptions, and opening and closing celebrations encourage and enable interaction among actors, directors, writers, Village Originals members, and guest artists and administrators from other institutions.
