Announcing the 2015 Fall Musical Cafe Showcase, with TWO performances!

We’re returning to the East Bay, and putting on two performances this time!

Play Cafe’s third Musical Cafe Showcase of 2015 will be presented on Sunday September 27 at 3:00 p.m. and Monday September 28 at 7:00 p.m. at The Flight Deck in Oakland. Our selection committee is busy evaluating the submissions received this round, and we’ll ultimately choose four new musicals from Bay Area writers and composers. Actors, directors and our musical director will then bring 20 minutes’ worth of songs and scenes from each of them to the stage.

We will announce our selected musicals by the end of June, so watch this space! And stay tuned for information about tickets for the September showcase, as well as information about our 2016 calendar and the submission window for the January 2016 showcase.

Actors interested in performing in the September showcase:

The general auditions for the September showcase will be held Saturday August 1, 2015, exact time and location TBD. If you are interested in auditioning, send an email to with “MC Auditions” in the subject line.

About the Musical Cafe Showcase:

The Musical Cafe Showcase is an afternoon of songs and scenes from new musicals by Northern California writers and composers. A maximum of 20 minutes of material will be presented from each show. Our first two showcases from January 2015 and May 2015 were enormously successful.

Details about the shows that were presented on May 3 can be found at the Musical Cafe tab.

Details about submissions for the Musical Cafe showcases can be found here.

It takes many hands to make the Musical Cafe Showcases happen. If you’d like to help in any way, please get in touch with Sandy at  We’re particularly looking for a House Manager, and help with box office, social media, and traditional marketing/publicity. Want to participate in some other way? Maybe direct a 20 minute musical theatre piece?  Are you interested in performing?  Making a donation?  Let us know!
