Introducing MUSI-CAL.

For the past seven years we've been working to develop a community of artists in Southern California who create and perform new musicals. We're not New York. You can't walk out your front door and bump into people you know. We keep looking for ways to bring composers, lyricists, book writers and performers together. Now the folks at Rockwell, the wonderful musical theater cabaret in Los Feliz, have invited the Festival to work with them to stage an event that showcases the community. MUSI-CAL is what we're calling all of our outreach and educational activities. So check for details below and please join the community on July 20th.

Our Mission

To ENTERTAIN audiences in Southern California with exciting new musical theatre.

To EDUCATE the next generation of theatre goers, creators, and performers.

To DEVELOP new shows for American Musical Theatre.

What We Do

Since 2008, the Festival of New American Musicals has curated an annual festival of new musicals throughout Southern California, performed by Professionals, Communities, and Schools. We will be celebrating our 7th Festival Year from May 2014 - August 2014.
