Headquartered in Auburn, NY, the Finger Lakes Musical Theatre Festival is an award winning arts organization committed to diversity, inclusion and creating theatrical experiences at the highest levels of artistic integrity. We leverage the power of the arts as a tool for entertainment, education, social awareness and cultural development in our community and the Finger Lakes region.

Four hours from NYC and situated between Syracuse, Rochester and Ithaca, the Finger Lakes Musical Theatre Festival is one of the largest producing musical theatre organizations in New York State, outside of New York City. Our mainstage, the Preston H. Thomas Theatre in the Merry Go Round Playhouse, presents large-scale Broadway spectacles with talent from Broadway and across the country at our flagship location in beautiful Emerson Park on Owasco Lake.

Our second venue, The Carriage House Theater (formerly Theatre Mack), is a cabaret-style environment, housed in a converted and beautifully restored carriage house. There, we present a new musical in development each week, encouraging audience feedback and discourse in our new works series, The PiTCH." This year, we celebrate the seventh anniversary of The PiTCH, which will launch with our 60th new musical to date.

We provide top-notch entertainment to over 67,000 patrons each season, are routinely recognized by industry press and maintain a high regard in the professional theatre community for our artistry and execution.
