Our Mission

Evaluation:

Submitted musicals are read and critiqued by two (2) members of the professional directing community. Reports are returned to the Creators. Shows vetted and “Nominated" by BOTH Evaluators receive MainStreet’s Directors’ Choice Award (DCA) and are listed - and their materials maintained - in MainStreet’s Library of Recommended Works.
