Atlanta Musical Theatre Festival
About the Atlanta Musical Theatre Festival
Now entering our 4th year, the Atlanta Musical Theatre Festival is becoming the premiere musical theatre festival in the Southeast. We remain committed to providing actors, directors, music directors, choreographers, designers, and technicians with opportunities to develop their craft.
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.”
Sponsorship and donor opportunities are now available for our 2019 festival. You can find a breakdown of sponsor and donor giving levels below.
Donor Levels & Benefits
“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.”
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.
Where is the money going?
It takes a lot of money for a successful event like this. We must rent out venues as well as sound and lighting equipment. This includes microphones, amps, monitors, as well as musicians and their instruments. We also have an extremely hard working staff, made up of our general manager, director of development, production manager, technical director, publicist, creative director and a photographer/videographer. These people work tirelessly to put the festival together. We will also need a lot of promotional items as we gear up for the festival, including postcards, posters, programs, stickers and a step & repeat. All of these items cost us money, and we can’t do this without your help.
Begins: November 1, 2016
