Where new musicals are born

Underscore Theatre Company is the Chicago region's only company dedicated to developing, showcasing, and producing new musicals. Our productions have gone on to be produced regionally, receive licensing and publication deals, and win awards nationwide.

Give life to a new musical

Underscore Theatre Company is Chicagoland’s only organization dedicated exclusively to the development of new musicals. We help composers, lyricists, authors, and other artists take their work “from page to stage” with services from readings and workshops to full productions. Ticket sales cover just 10% of Underscore’s operations, so we count on musical theatre lovers like you to support our goals with tax-deductible gifts of any size.
