How to License a Broadway Junior Musical from Hal Leonard
Licensing is the process of acquiring the performance rights to a show. It's the only way to ensure your group does not violate the Federal Copyright Law and it is legally required to produce any musical, whether you're a school group or a professional theater.
Hal Leonard is a distributor and partner with MTI, and as such we are able to license a select group of Broadway Junior musicals either directly or through our music dealers. We are able to license musicals to:
- Accredited academic elementary and middle schools with students in grades 9 and lower
All other organizations wishing to license a Broadway Junior musical should contact MTI directly at www.mtishows.com.
Step 1: Browse the Catalog and Select Your Musical
Whether you're looking for an MTI Broadway Junior Collection® show based on a recent hit from Broadway, a timeless classic, a beloved Disney tune or a show based on an award-winning book, we have something for everyone.
Simply browse the collection from the list on our 60 or 30-minute showpages, and you'll find helpful information on the shows' requirements on their individual show pages.
Read a Copy of the Script Before You Decide
Not sure what show you'd like to perform? Order an audio sampler of a script (also comes with a full listening CD of the show) so you can read the libretto to see if it's right for your group. Read one or read several musicals to help you make the best decision. We strongly recommend you read the script before you book a show - even if you think you know a title. Only you know what material is appropriate for your school.
Audio Samplers are available from your local music dealer or from Hal Leonard for $10USD (plus shipping) each. These are yours to keep, even if you decide not to perform the show.
Step 2: Place Your Order
MTI knows schools are facing challenging times, so they've created a special license just for accredited schools grades K-9. This license includes all the ShowKit™ resources listed above, plus the right to perform the show as many times as you would like within one year.
MTI's 30-minute KIDS titles range from $395 to $645
MTI's 60-minute JR. titles range from $550 to $795
Simply order your selected musical from your preferred music dealer or Hal Leonard. Be sure to include your shipping and contact information with your dealer.
Step 3: Watch for Your License Agreement in the Mail/Email/Fax
Once Hal Leonard has received your order your License Agreement will be sent/emailed/faxed to you. This is generally a quick process, so be sure to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or 1-800-322-1127 if you do NOT receive your License Agreement within one week of placing your order.
Step 4: Read and Sign Your License Agreement - return to Hal Leonard
Read over your License Agreement CLOSELY to be sure you understand it. Broadway Junior titles are non-returnable, so once you sign the license, you've made your purchase. Sign your agreement and return it to Hal Leonard as soon as possible.
Once we receive your signed agreement we will ship your order.
Step 5: Put On Your Show!
