The Foundation for New American Musicals believes that the arts empower voice and sharing of deep emotions –that arts promote understanding and dialogue. For more than five years we have been working in Title I LAUSD high schools where students are 90% people of color and more than 75% are eligible for free and reduced meals.  In keeping with our mission of educating, mentoring and showcasing the work of next generation creators of musicals for stage, screen and new media, we have worked with more than 500 students to give students the tools they need to share their voices with our PATHWAY residencies.




The Foundation for New American Musicals began as The Festival for New American Musicals with the vision of introducing classic and new musicals to southern California audiences and ensuring musicals a place in the cultural conversation. The Festival produced 1700+ performances from Santa Barbara to San Diego for more than 1.75 million people. In 2015 FNAM adopted a different mission: to educate, mentor and showcase the next generation of musicals for stage, screen and new media. Four major programs support composers, lyricists and book writers of all backgrounds from high school to college to graduate school and beyond.
