Following the success of TIP’s first ever new playwrighting competition, “And to All…A Swipe Right”, in December of 2020, TIP has decided to do it again, but this time with music!  “Songs for a New…Now” is a compilation of musical numbers by fourteen different Kansas City based musical artists.  The songs range from musical theatre to pop songs, and the artists come from all walks of life; teachers, to a high school student, to people who love to write music just for fun.  “Songs for a New…Now” is truly a triumph of community theatre by showcasing the immense talent that resides in the Kansas City community.
