How about making it a movie?
I was in this play as Shere Khan a few months ago, and recently, I thought of turning it into a little YouTube movie that mostly wouldn't take place in a building - it'd be filmed outside. I don't know if filming it is allowed, though. Must it strictly be a play, or is making it a movie okay?

Can our middle school perform Hairspray Jr. with a partially diverse cast?
Our middle school would like to perform Hairspray Jr. Our student population has some diversity, which is multi-racial, Hispanic, Asian, Indian, not many who are black. What are the requirements and can we work around this? Please send me an email with details, to kimschiff45@gmail.com. Also, does Edna have to be a male? Thank you, Kim

Options for non-diverse Hairspray Jr. production.
My teens have spoken and they want to do Hairspray Jr. I know you have sent some suggestions to others on how to be true to the script without the necessary diversity in our cast members. I would love a copy of those suggestions, debbie@musictheatrewest.org. Thanks!

Contemporary costumes
Hi everyone. I am working on Beauty and the Beast Jr. I am thinking about trying something different and modernizing the costumes for both the villagers and servants to give the play a different look to surprise the audience. Has anyone tried this? Any thoughts or ideas would be great. Many thanks

Licensing to private performances?
Hi, Me and my wife want to create a very special hebrew adaptation of Annie, for 1 actor only. We are looking to expose the play and the music to children who don't have the means or money. We want to perform in Kindergarten in non central areas of the country. Most of the ticket wont be even charged. I tried to apply for licensing, But we are not part of an organisation or a theatre. We are just one actress and a musician :) What should we do, or is there anyone we can email to about it? Thanks! Itai.

Seussical Kids
I am from a very small school district. Currently we all wear many hats, I am both the 1st grade teacher and the elementary music teacher. We are a Title 1 school, at 90% free/reduced lunch, there is no way I could get any fundraising money from parents or the community. Are there any grants for schools like mine?

Hairspray Jr. casting question
My school is in an area without a lot of ethnic diversity. I'm wondering if there is a possibility to classify a group, not racially, but in some other way to make it work for our community? Please let me know any ideas. Thank you.
