We are wanting to do the full version of Dear Edwina next year and are researching the production. In the past, we have used themtpit for approved backing for shows like Legally Blonde and Into the Woods, but Dear Edwina isn't availble through them.MTI doesn't have a performance cd for the full version either.We are preparing for live music, but wanting to see if there are any approved recordings to use as backing. The average age of our cast is 13 and we find it easier for them to rehearse and perform with pre-recorded music over live.

My suggestion, especially for THIS show would be to do the junior version. There are not that many differences, it will be a heck of a lot cheaper, and it comes with the full orchestraion CD!! Especially if your cast members are around 13 years old anyways. We looked at both and couldn't fathom paying 6 times as much, for 2 aditonal songs. Dear Edwina JR. was a hit for us!!
