The Winter Park Playhouse launches it’s new Florida Festival of New Musicals August 24 – 27 of this year, and has just confirmed the winning selections for 2017.
The Festival has been created to advance and elevate the original American art form of musical theatre by fostering the development of new musicals and the artistic growth of writers and composers. The 4-day event will showcase six brand new, never-before-produced musical works and connect writers and composers with professional producers and directors. The first act of each selected musical will be fully read and sung concert-style, without staging, by varying casts of professional actors and musicians. Audiences will have the unique and exciting opportunity to see musicals in the early stages of development.
