Event Calendar

Each year, since 2014, ĭmáGen selects a new musical to be presented in concert on the Pasant stage at Wharton Center. This new musical is workshopped under the guidance of a Broadway-caliber director, two professional actors in leading roles, the creative team of the chosen musical, and the leadership of MSU’s College of Arts and Letters’ Department of Theatre and Wharton Center for Performing Arts. The program becomes a vivid learning experience for both college and high school actors who are cast alongside professionals in the production each year.

Composers/Lyricists

Submissions are now open for ĭmáGen 2018. Deadline is December 15, 2017 to submit your new musical for consideration for the Fall 2018 program.
