Festival of New Musicals

january 18-19-20, 2019

To learn more when 2019 Festival details are announced, please join our mail list.

This 3-day event on the Goodspeed campus offers artists the rare opportunity to work on their projects with the help of Goodspeed’s renowned resources and artistic environment, while affording students fromThe Hartt School of the University of Hartford and The Boston Conservatory real-world experience in new musical development and performance.  Several weeks before the Festival begins, three writing teams and seniors from Hartt and BoCo converge on the Goodspeed campus.  The writing teams cast the students in their new musicals and rehearsals begin.  The writers and composers dedicate their time to further developing their pieces as they prepare the students to perform staged readings of their new works.  The Festival of New Musicals culminates at the end of the second week with staged readings of the three new musicals, breakout sessions dealing with pertinent issues in Musical Theatre, a preview of the upcoming Norma Terris Theatre season, a Symposium, a Meet the Writers Reception, a Festival Dinner, and several Cabarets.
