The Theatre for Young Audiences Collection features musicals for adults to perform for children. TYA shows usually have cast requirements of 6-12 actors, and have running times under 90 minutes.
Designed with educators in mind, MTI's School Edition™ musicals embody a bold new idea in creating and licensing adaptations of grand scale, symphonic musicals in versions adapted for performance by high school students. These adaptations, while smaller in size, retain all of the scope and glory of the originals.
MTI's first School Edition Musical, LES MISERABLES, was released in 2002 to great fanfare and has already become a huge success in high schools around the world. Each School Edition title comes complete with a detailed Director's Script with helpful technical advice, a Study Guide for interdisciplinary learning as well as an Accompaniment CD.
The Theatre on the Edge Collection™ features shows that move audiences to the edge of their seats with excitement and anticipation, pushing the envelope beyond the edge of the traditional into the realm of the innovative and groundbreaking. They have prompted audiences to fall in love ĘC to return again and again, and to share their feelings with other fans through blogs, fan clubs, Twitter and Facebook.
Theatre on the Edge™ shows have several things in common: they have garnered a disproportionate share of awards and acclaim; they stimulate discussion and generate phenomenal word of mouth; they attract audiences including those who might not otherwise be drawn to a musical; they generate exclusive cult followings and encourage repeat customers; they reflect boldness and artistic integrity; they sell tickets!
