Folks in the live theater sector of the entertainment industry are generally aware that the MainStreet's programs are primarily designed to expand opportunities for qualified new musicals… to get them in front of people who can appreciate them - potentially invest in their development - and then bring them to audiences who will enjoy them. 

To encourage that process, MainStreet has begun to focus on “the next generation” of artists and audiences.  The Callbacks Competition is part of that effort. The contestants are singing songs harvested from new musicals that have not been produced yet. Contestants treat these performances as “video auditions” - hence the term “Callback” meaning that they made it through the first phase. 

The musicals that the songs come from have been “selected” and are currently being “recommended for development and production” by professional directors, members of MainStreet’s Evaluation Committee, the folks who read the new musicals that the writers send to us. 

We’re offer these young contestants - college-aged performers - the opportunity to sing these songs to you and to illustrate their quality and their own undeniable talent. We are proud of these young artists and we wish them well on their quest for professional performing careers when they graduate.  

Watch and listen to these kids. They represent the hope for the future of our industry and of the greatest performing arts form ever developed by the spirit and mind of man.
