Ball State University’s College of Fine Arts and Department of Theatre and Dance, in association with the Discovery Ball State Women’s Fund and the Provost Immersive Learning Initiative, are looking for unpublished musical theatre and play writers and their works to be presented as part of the DISCOVERY NEW THEATRE FESTIVAL. Submissions of new musicals and plays are examined and screened by students until a final selection is made. Those remaining productions are presented at the Summer Festivals as staged readings performed by Ball State students and professional artists are adjudicated by industry professionals. One selected production is performed as part of Ball State University’s season and as a full entry into the Kennedy Center’s American College Theatre Festival.

Golden Mask is also an all-Russian Performing Arts Festival that takes place in Moscow in the spring of each year, presenting the most significant performances from all over Russia.
Stage Songs Review is devoted entirely to the art of song interpretation. It started in 1976. Today, on stage – not only musical but also, and perhaps above all, in a dramatic theatre – the song is no longer just an addition. This is a legitimate way of presenting creative thought, sometimes more important than the spoken word. To watch how music and word complement each other and co-create a new quality is the core sense of the Wrocław festival.
Opera Rara is a three-week festival, which is held during the carnival. It is a time historically associated with the highest number of opera premieres, as well as a period full of balls, play and an atmosphere of celebration. The Festival is primarily an extension of the programme with vocal recitals, performances originating not only from the Baroque, but also rooted in the 20th century, semi-operas and half-stage versions of performances.
The launch of the historic first edition came after a period of close to 13 years of investment by Sundance Institute in risk-taking artists from six East African countries (Burundi, Ethiopia, Kenya, Rwanda, Tanzania and Uganda) with the aim to contribute to a meaningful and engaging dialogue between artists and their audiences. The first edition of the festival featured productions and readings by many of the East African artists and projects that received support from Sundance Institute over the years. We welcome full productions, works in progress (staged readings or workshop productions), musicals and theatre for young audiences.

NYMF is the largest annual musical theater festival in America. Each summer the Festival presents productions, concerts, readings and special events in the heart of New York City’s Theater District. NYMF is musical theater’s answer to the independent film movement, combining a grassroots festival model with a technical framework geared specifically to musicals. Located in the heart of the world’s largest theater district – midtown Manhattan, the Festival provides or subsidizes all the key components needed to realize a show, from theaters and technical equipment to marketing, industry and audience outreach, giving independent artists and emerging producers resources and opportunities they couldn’t otherwise access or afford, and giving rise to dozens of new works each summer.

It also provides theater writers with the opportunity, space and resources to develop and showcase new family-friendly musicals.
