Frequently Asked Questions about Broadway Junior Musicals

 

How long can we perform this show?
Your Performance License is good for 12 months. You can keep all the materials after the 12 month period, but the materials are not reusable.Back to Top
Can I perform the same show the next year and just purchase the rights since I already have the materials?
You will need to purchase a new kit and sign a new performance license if you would like to perform the show again at another time. The materials are not re-useable, refundable or transferable.Back to Top
Can I videotape the performance?

The shows that can be videotaped with the purchase of a Video License at $75 include:

  • Any Disney 60 or 30 minute musical
  • Fame JR.
  • The Musical Adventures of Flat Stanley JR.

Main restrictions: video recordings are for cast/crew/families only, can't be sold and can't be broadcast in any way including on the Internet.

The remaining shows do not allow videotaping. Parents cannot tape, even just for their own personal in-home use. It has nothing to do with how the tape would be used, not being sold, etc. It all comes down to legal copyright rights. Here is how Music Theatre International explains it: Unfortunately, the rights to videotape are not available. Copyright law gives authors the exclusive right to control the reproduction of their work. When a license is granted for a live stage production of a show, that license does not include the right to tape it because the authors retain the sole right to decide when or if their work is recorded in any way. Even a videotape made for classroom use, as a personal memento or as an archival school record violates the authors' separate right to reproduce their work. In most cases, the authors have already granted such rights exclusively to film or television companies, in which case videotaping this show would also be infringing upon the rights granted by the authors to a third party.

Can I post a video of our performance on YouTube?
There is no broadcasting of the show in any way, even if you've signed a video license. The license specifically restricts the right to broadcast your performance on YouTube, any school channel, etc.Back to Top
I have a few students who were in the 9th grade last year and are going into the 10th grade, can I still allow them to perform in the show?
No. All performers are required to be in the 9th grade or under when the show is performed.Back to Top
Can I perform only certain musical numbers from the show?
No. The show must be performed exactly as it has been provided to you in the ShowKit™ materials and you cannot delete, alter or make changes of any kind in the text of the play, the musical numbers, characters or characterizations.Back to Top
