Festival Selections

A Festival “First”

In the planning stages for several years, and in our dreams for decades, Mainstreet Affiliates in ten cities will present the (first ever) first annual nationally coordinated three-show Festivals.  Festivals will feature the three 2014 Mainstreet Award Winning musicals. 

Mainstreet’s program - to evaluate, identify and regularly introduce brand new, highly regarded musicals into communities that present them live in concert - is unique.
