Old Version

Does this mean the original version with "WHY ME?" for Jafar is no longer available?  While I love this new script, I did enjoy Jafar's song.  I've done Aladdin Jr. twice -- it's a great choice for Middle Schools!

Thanks!

Hi. I'm looking for suggestions on how to make the peach grow, in James and the giant peach Junior. Our production will not use lights unfortunately. Our stage is quite small, we have no budget, and the kids are 6 to 10 years old. Any ideas?

Costs for materials and performance rights
Hello! I am looking to do "Jungle Book Kids" with our summer theater youth workshop in 2018 and need to write up an estimated cost. Could you get me the estimated cost for materials, performance rights etc.? We are a non-profit, community theater. We would have two performances and we only house about 300 people in our theater. We would want to purchase the video license as well. Thanks for your help! Desiree Brown

Non-Diverse Cast
My Middle School students have expressed enthusiasm in doing Hairspray JR. next year. However, unfortunately our school, or cast, does not have a large diverse population. I'm wondering if and how this can be adapted for my students, while still staying true to the story.

Also lacking diversity in casting, wondering how other people dealt with this?
Hi! Kind of in the same boat as everyone else - I'm directing for a summer camp that's not super ethnically diverse, is there a way to address this without being disrespectful? If anyone has any ideas, please email me at morganingari@gmail.com. Thank you!

Is there a way to buy the showkit for Lion King Jr without the djembe set? I have a djembes that have the african print and will still incorporate them into the show.
