Can’t attend? You can still support us!

As you might imagine, commissioning orchestrations for five musicals and performing them in concert with a 35-piece orchestra is quite a costly endeavor. Ticket sales cover only a small portion of our costs; we depend primarily on donations to make this program possible. Please consider a donation today–you’ll be helping the next generation of musical theatre writers get the opportunity of a lifetime.
