    Join us to celebrate the premiere of the Musicarnival Recordings Collection.  Cleveland’s own Bill Rudman, Co-Director of the Musical Theater Project, and Diana Price share selected recordings along with their Musicarnival memories.


    Musicarnival, Cleveland’s trail-blazing tent theatre, offered live musical productions to a generation of theater enthusiasts from 1954-1975. This rare collection of complete, live stage recordings from the golden age of American musical theater will be made available over the next four years to visitors exclusively at two major venues: the Cleveland Public Library and Goodspeed Musicals’ Scherer Library of Musical Theatre in Connecticut.

The archives includes playbills, programs, scrapbooks, business records, props, black-and-white photos and thousands of color slides donated by Mr. Price in the 1990s and early 2000s.
