FTA Accepting Entries for 2018 New Musical Discovery Series
Florida Theatrical Association (FTA) announces the Third Annual New Musical Discovery Series - a showcase for new musicals to be presented in September 2018, at The MEZZ and The Abbey in downtown Orlando - and call for entries.
Aspiring writers from around the country are encouraged to submit new works to be reviewed by a panel of theatre professionals, including renowned directors, writers, producers and performers. The panel will select two works to receive a staged reading, and one additional work to have a workshop presented featuring local directors and talent. The Discovery Series will also include talkbacks for students and audiences with the playwrights and directors.

The deadline to submit musicals for consideration is April 28, 2018. Entries must include a full script as well as basic recordings of at least six songs from the musical. Full submission guidelines and more information can be found at www.FloridaTheatrical.org.
