The 24th Annual Festival of New American Theatre

The 24th Annual Festival of New American Theatre

May 6, 2022 to May 15, 2022

The southwest’s premiere new theatre works festival. Trust us, it’s a process.

Hosted annually by The Phoenix Theatre Company, the Festival of New American Theatre amplifies new voices and expands the canon of American theatre. This season, the festival will focus more on the development of new musicals — featuring the readings of two new musicals and one play, as well as the Composer Lyricist Cabaret. Through a partnership with New York Theatre Barn, a primary incubator of new musicals, we will also feature the addition of a Choreography Lab which will explore how choreographers leave iconic marks on new musicals.

ASL Interpretation and Audio Description will be offered at select performances this year:

A Beautiful Place: Saturday, May 7 at 3:00pm

The Belle of Tombstone: Sunday, May 8 at 3:00pm

Hollywood Nurses: Sunday, May 15 at 3:00pm
