that recommends professionally vetted musicals 
to university theatre departments and regional developers.

The National Audition Competition -
 FOR PERFORMERS 18-24 YEARS OLD
MainStreet's CALLBACKS Competition has been completely revised. 
The new competition will be OPEN-ENDED and will operate as follows:

Contestants, individuals or in groups of any size, will

  1. Select ANY song from ANY show in MainStreet’s Library of Recommended Works.
  2. Request the piano/vocal score from the CALLBACKS administrator: info@mainstreetmusicals.org
  3. Learn it and produce a Performance Video of it - in solo or in “zoom” format.
  4. Submit the Video to the Acceptd CALLBACKS website: https://app.getacceptd.com/mainstreetcallbacks
  5. Pay the nominal “entry fee” of $30.

Each Submission:

  1. Will be delivered to the Creative Team who wrote the song.
  2. The Creative Team will acknowledge receipt and - within two weeks of acknowledgment - will indicate to the CALLBACKS administrator whether that Submission has been ‘CAST’. 
  3. All CAST Submissions will be posted on MainStreet's Social Media outlets for one month.
  4. AND will be posted in a special highlighted section of MainStreet’s Library. 
  5. AND on the Show page of the musical from which the song was selected - for a period of ONE YEAR.

 

MAINSTREET MUSICALS Inc. utilizes professional script evaluation, industry competitions, and local concert-readings to promote development opportunities for new musicals throughout regional America. MainStreet is a non-profit, tax-exempt (501-c-3) organization.

MAINSTREET’S EVALUATION PROGRAM - Submitted musicals are read and critiqued by a minimum of two professional directors. Their reports are returned to the creators. Shows vetted and “Nominated" by BOTH Evaluators are installed in our Library of Recommended Works and become contestants in MainStreet’s Directors’ Choice Award (DCA) competition.

EVALUATION PORTAL.

MAINSTREET’S LIBRARY OF RECOMMENDED WORKS -
MainStreet maintains an on-line “stockroom” of Recommended musicals judged - during Evaluation - to be "worthy of development" by at least two professional directors. Materials for these shows are made available to Affiliated campus and professional programs for study and performance.

THE LIBRARY

MAINSTREET’S PARTNERSHIP WITH ACCEPTD. - MainStreet is extremely fortunate to count Acceptd as its partner. Acceptd, “The World’s Largest Arts Network”, is currently providing MainStreet with internet- based platforms upon which we now operate two programs at the center of our core mission: Evaluations and Campus Callbacks. Thanks to Acceptd, MainStreet has regular access to a network of several hundred college theater and music departments around the country, and introductions to their faculties.
