  • 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.
