Hello everyone

I'm looking to do a small local production of the musical Tick Tick Boom. I've never gone through the process of acquiring the rights and running a show, as I have usually been an actor on stage and therefore, have a few questions. How much money am I looking to spend on a smaller show such as this one? and what flexibility do I have with the book? Can I omit lines or make small changes to certain lines if it doesn't affect the story? And finally, am I able to buy the rights as a singular person as oppose to through a theatre company?


Thanks so much for the help everyone!

Hello! We're so happy you're interested in Tick, Tick... Boom! You must apply for the rights as an organization/theatre company. While your production budget is up to you, you can use our Cost Estimator tool to get an estimate of licensing fees for the show. Go to the show page and click on the Cost Estimator drop-down tab on the page. 

If you wish to make any changes to the book, you must email your proposed changes to your MTI Licensing Representative. These changes cannot be implemented without approval.
