American Musical Creative

This new program aims to establish St. Louis as a hub for the creation of new American musical theater productions.  The first of its kind in the state of Missouri, AMC has the potential of not only creating new musical theatre works that could live on for decades, it also has the enormous potential of putting St. Louis on the national performing arts map as a creative force in new product.  

At the helm of this new division will be STAGES’ newly appointed Associate Artistic Director, Stephen Bourneuf.  With decades of experience on Broadway, regional theatre, and television, Bourneuf is distinctly fit for heading up the AMC division.  Working alongside Bourneuf will be the award-winning STAGES creative team.  Artistic Director, Michael Hamilton has mounted well over 75 acclaimed musical theatre productions at STAGES, and full time Musical Supervisor, Lisa Campbell Albert, is not only an accomplished musical director, but is also an acclaimed arranger, pianist and singer.   

“The musical is truly an indigenous American art form, though its existence has become threatened due to the radical expenses of producing on Broadway,” explains STAGES Executive Producer Jack Lane. “Throughout the last twenty years, a number of forward thinking regional theatres have established nurturing and safe environments in which to create new works.  The majority of the great Broadway musicals of the past two decades were in fact created outside of New York.  I look forward to the day when St. Louis will be known as the home of great new American musicals."
