Florida Theatrical Association Has Announced the Call for Entries for Their Fifth Annual New Musical Discovery Series
Florida Theatrical Association has announced the call for entries for their fifth annual New Musical Discovery Series. A showcase for new musicals, the New Musical Discovery Series will be presented in mid to late August 2020 at The Abbey and The MEZZ in downtown Orlando.
Aspiring writers from around the country are encouraged to submit their new works, which will be reviewed by a panel of theatre professionals, including renowned directors, writers, producers and performers. The panel will select two works that will each receive a staged reading of their piece 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 1, 2020.
All submissions must include:
A cover letter
A history of the musical's development
A CD or flash drive with at least six songs from the production (it can be a very basic recording).

It is preferred that the materials are sent by a link or invitation to either Google Drive or Dropbox via email to: KennyHoward@FloridaTheatrical.org. Please have each of the items above as separate files.
