Licensing your Broadway Junior™ Musical
Everything you need to know about doing business with MTI, from becoming a customer to ordering a perusal script to licensing your Broadway Junior™ musical, is laid out below. The first thing you’ll need to do is set up an account with us.
Should you have any questions along the way, please don’t hesitate to contact us directly or check out our Help section with Questions and Answers provided by the theatre community, as well as FAQs from MTI staff.
- Step 1: Set Up a New Account
In order to license a show and do business with MTI, you’ll need to create a MyMTI Account and find an existing theatrical organization or register a new one.
- Step 2: Select Your Musical
Whether you’re looking for a Broadway Junior™ show based on a recent hit from Broadway, a timeless classic, a beloved Disney tuner or something based on an award-winning book, we have something for everyone.
First Picks for First Timers
Shows with the First Pick distinction are musicals that have proven easy to produce, no matter the size or experience of your group. We’ve selected a few KIDS musicals as well as some JR shows that are great choices for beginners.
Read a Copy of the Script Before You Decide
Not sure what show you’d like to perform? Order a hard copy or an electronic perusal copy of a script so you can read the libretto to see if it’s right for your theatre. 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 or community.
- Step 3: Complete Your License Application
After you have selected your Broadway Junior™ musical, send or complete a license application online, providing us with your anticipated performance dates, your theatre's contact info and seating capacity, as well as your intended ticket prices. If your selected show has no restrictions, you will receive an official “Offer” once you click “Submit.”
You can apply for up to three titles at the same time, but only for the same anticipated dates. People do this to see what's available for their area in that time frame or because they haven't yet settled on what show they want to produce. So, they apply for three at once, and then decide later.
- Step 4: Your License Offer / Production Contract
If you’re an accredited elementary or middle school, please skip this step.
Once we process your license application, you will then receive an “Offer.” The offer (the production contract) is important because it outlines everything you are permitted and not permitted to do with that particular title. In all of our shows, there are contractual restrictions regarding billing and production, among other things; the contract also outlines your royalty payments and materials fees for that show.
Your license offer is only valid for six (6) weeks from the date of issue. To secure the rights outlined in the license, you should return the signed license with payment within the six weeks. If it is not returned as outlined above, show availability and the fees quoted may be withdrawn. If you decide to change the dates or other details of your production, you should notify MTI in writing immediately since changes can affect the availability and conditions of a license.
Payment must be received in full along with your Production Contract in order for the offer to become a “booking” and for your ShowKit® to be shipped.
For schools and government agencies only, a signed, authorized purchase order is acceptable for payment.
After we receive your signed license offer with payment, the offer becomes a booking, which is official permission to perform your show on the requested dates.
Your ShowKit® of materials is yours to keep! If you need to order additional scripts, scores, etc., you can do so at any time. Materials ship as soon as we receive payment and your signed production contract.
