"The Atlanta Musical Theatre Festival will cultivate the next generation of theatre artists by mentoring talent, propelling new musicals forward, and celebrating the community in a supportive, nurturing, and creative environment."
Now entering our 3rd year, the Atlanta Musical Theatre Festival is becoming the premiere musical theatre festival in the Southeast. In just 2 years, we have presented 7 new musicals over 5 days, in 3 venues, to more than 700 patrons. We remain committed to providing actors, directors, music directors, choreographers, designers, and technicians with opportunities to develop their craft.
In just 2 years, AMTF has connected more than 200 artists and provided them with the resources they need to develop new musicals here in Atlanta.
The AMTF was born out of a desire to motivate artists to write new musicals. Benjamin Davis, Founder and Executive Artistic Director, is an actor and producer. After participating in the New York Musical Festival in 2015 as a producer, Ben saw an opportunity in the Atlanta community to nurture the writing population.
“We are most excited about creating a safe space for national and local artists to develop new work. We also want to make sure we provide an opportunity for emerging actors, directors, choreographers, musicians, and all theatre artists to hone their craft,” said Davis, Founder and Executive Artistic Director. “The Festival encourages artists to create their own opportunities, and to support and learn from each other.”
