Kissless the Musical debuts at The New York Musical Theatre Festival!

July 15, 2011

HOUSTON (July 12, 2011) The New York Musical Theatre Festival (NYMF) announced today that Kissless the Musical has been selected to perform in the 2011 Festival.  Kissless The Musical with book, music and lyrics by Chance McClain will receive its world premiere at the Festival.

Kissless the Musical, a 2011 New York Musical Theatre Festival Next Link finalist, tells the story of two very different people forced to live together for the summer and the unlikely relationship that develops to the dismay of their friends and family. With a raucous cast of characters including Abercrombie jocks, misfit Goths, brainy nerds, and backwards rednecks, Kissless the Musical tugs on heart strings between belly-laughs. A genre-hopping score paces this completely original look at what it is like to be a teen in the 21st century.


The Houston Family Arts Center (HFAC) Actors Academy has been selected to cast and perform the show in New York.  “We’re elated and honored to have this opportunity to present Kissless the Musical in The 2011 New Musical Theatre Festival,” said Bob Clark, HFAC Executive Director.  “This is an amazing opportunity for local Houston actors because the other 29 shows in the festival are all being cast by professional actors in New York.”

“I am humbled to have my musical selected for this prestigious Festival,” said Chance McClain, president of Chance Productions.  “I submitted to NYMF as a motivator, like, to force myself into some hard deadlines. When, out of hundreds, it was selected as a finalist, I kinda freaked.”

“I am excited to work with the Houston Family Arts Center,” McClain continued.  “They have been producing family-friendly shows of the highest caliber for the past 6 years and were an ideal fit. Kissless is a family show and HFAC is the best family venue in Houston. Match made in heaven.”

Directed by Sam Brown, Kissless the Musical has choreography by Ellen Dyer, musical direction by Stephen W. Jones, and scenic
design by Lisa Garza.
