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.

MAINSTREET’S LIBRARY OF RECOMMENDED WORKS -
MainStreet maintains an on-line “stockroom” of Rec- ommended musicals, musicals that have been judged worthy by at least two professional directors during the Evaluation process. Materials for these shows are made available at no charge for study and performance in Affiliated campus and professional programs.
