The Chicago Musical Theatre Festival, now in its fifth year, is a new works festival produced by Underscore Theatre Company. We believe there's a wealth of musical theatre creators in Chicago and around the country, but the high risks of producing new musicals means that few companies are willing to take a chance, especially with emerging authors. CMTF is designed from the ground up to keep costs low by sharing resources, to return half of all ticket proceeds to producers, and to showcase emerging authors from Chicago and beyond.
This year, we've partnered with Steele Spring Stage Rights, so every festival show will be guaranteed to be seen by a musical theatre publishing and licensing house, and participants will have access to a private seminar on getting your show licensed!
