MTCA - MUSICAL THEATRE COMPETITIONS OF AMERICA
is a Three-Day Educational Musical Theater Festival filled with Performance Opportunities, Master Classes, and Adjudication. We are the MOST extensive Educational Musical Theatre Festival in the Nation!
There are many factors to consider when selecting the right experience for your students. MTCA has been offering the highest quality educational and performance experience for students across the country for over 19 years. As other festivals are more commercial in their approach, at MTCA, we thrive on the idea each performing art student is unique. We offer a variety of opportunities to cultivate individual and group talents throughout the MTCA Festival.
MTCA provides an opportunity for students to experience the transformative power of Musical Theatre! Students experience a professional “Open Call” Broadway audition process, perform on stage in a professional theatrical environment, compete individually for professional adjudicators who offer constructive feedback, have the opportunity to watch and support other performers, attend exciting masterclasses, and make impactful connections with other Musical Theatre students from around the country.
MTCA wrote the book on educational Musical Theatre Competitions with over 19 years of experience and excellence in empowering performers across the country. MTCA allows students and groups to select their performance material and allows creative expression! We are more than opportunities to perform. MTCA is about community, connections, and education.

Our adjudicators are qualified theater professionals, college professors, industry professionals, & casting directors. Each performer and group receive an intensive and positive clinic directly after the presentation. This allows participants to grow and learn as performers in a supportive and meaningful way. Students preparing for upcoming show auditions, college, or professional auditions will come away with tangible feedback that will elevate their performances.
YES! MTCA is an educationally-based theatre festival aligning with the National Core Arts curriculum and adjudicated by theatre professionals dedicated to educating performers and growing arts education.
It’s not just about a trophy! Every performer will leave the MTCA Festival with something more! They will leave with a sense of confidence that only comes with challenging themselves to reach for their highest potential.
MTCA is where students learn the power of preparation. Preparation, persistence, and resilience are traits that not only impact performance; they enhance every aspect of a student’s life. Understanding that success is directly related to preparation. MTCA recreates the high-pressure stakes of a professional audition. As a result, performers leave with the tools they need to handle the stress or pressure they will encounter throughout their performing career and beyond.
Groups categories include Ensemble, Musical Revue, and Showtune.
Awards are presented in all Categories, including Individual, Group, Triple Threat, and Sweepstakes Awards.
