Macau's first musical debut by locals - the first “home-made” musical in Macau will be perform at the end of this year. This performance will be temporarily called "D for Daddy, S for Son – a Conceptual Musical". All the cast and crew are performed by the locals.

The project "Art-in-Residence (AIR) Project - A Local original Musical Comes to Life" began in September 2007, now it reaches its third and final phase. This project includes the creative process, production and performance of the original musical. The Macau Cultural Centre will start accepting applications from local residents who have talents in theatre, music or dance to be in the first musical of Macau. At the end of the year, all the participants of the project will perform the show they created at the stage.

At first in 2007, participants went through the basics of this theatrical genre and starts to produce their own show. The second phase focused on training more interested actors to commit themselves to “Broadway Express”, a musical showcase. This year, the project is reaching its third and final phase.
