Thirty Saints Productions is a dynamic and innovative company that excels in creating original theatrical works for a diverse range of venues across the globe.

In addition, we negotiate, consult, and acquire music licenses for popular jukebox musicals.

At Thirty Saints Productions, we take pride in our passion for creativity and unwavering commitment to excellence.

Our growing portfolio encompasses a wide array of genres from raise-the-roof jukebox revues to exciting full-length musicals like Hooked On The 70s (two-time winner of the Orlando Fringe Festival Audience Favorite Award), Nite Club Confidential (Carbonell Award Winner and the show Ken Mandelbaum, author of Not Since Carrie, boldly crowned “the masterpiece of the cabaret genre.”) and A Country Christmas Carol “On Air” (which David Armstrong of Broadway Nation gave 5 out of 5 stars.)

We created the innovative Songbook Series, which played to SRO crowds at the Ordway Center for the Performing Arts for over seven years.  

Each piece is crafted with cultural relevance and focuses on connecting to your ideal audience.
