Which production is more suitable for a more mature group of young actors? I am hoping to direct Aladdin at a middle school, and I would prefer the script that is more challenging.Typically, how much do rights and rental fees cost?

I was trying to find out a breakdown of the number of lines per character. Does anyone know how many lines Aladdin and Jasmine each have? This is for the Aladdin Disney Kids musical. Thanks!

I would also love to see Rachel's spreadsheet for Aladdin. I am doing Aladdin Jr...and am currently holding auditions. Ah, the stress and excitement!

I would love to see Rachel's spreadsheet on Aladdin. I am going to do it this Spring and need to start planning. michael@hannabanana.com

Zoicks.. I've been very busy with our current production (Mulan Jr), but I will share the excel sheets when I'm done (June 3/4).

Well, I start delegating AFTER this excel page is set. Makes it so much easier for the whole production team. :)

I'll host the excel party...you guys are a riot and deserve a Tony for making organization easier for yourself and kids. Remember, the key word is "delegate". Lets share your game plans!! CR

I was wondering if I was alone in my use of excel for breaking down the shows. Perhaps we need a new discussion topic just to share these tools.

I do the same Christie! (But I have the students do it, and make about 4 of them...this helps them learn the order of the show, and it's one less thing I have to worry about!)

I love the idea of the kids doing the breakdown...but I find that I can't wait that long. I can't operate efficiently without my color coded actor/scene/breakdown. :) I need the breakdown to plan the schedule (because I break it down so that we don't have actors at rehearsal when they are not actively in the scene. ie. Genie is called ONLY for scenes genie is in, and all her scenes are scheduled at the same time...or as close to that as I can. :)) When breaking down a play, I color code groups. For Aladdin, Aladdin, Jasmine, Genie, and the Narrators were in the blue group. Carpets and named townspeople (baker, etc) were in the red group and did more singing and dancing than some of the other groups. The harem girls were in the pink group, the younger dancers in the village were in the purple group, The guards were in the grey group, and the newest performers who were in only the opening and closing numbers were in the green group. Then I put together a calendar that the cast can view online at www.daretodreamtheatre.com/rehearsal.html for the cast to know when they were needed based on their color group. I have this all done before rehearsals start, and I do EVERYTHING in my power not to change the schedule...but if something changes, I change it online and send an e-mail telling people to check the online schedule for a change. Takes a LONG time to set up...but I can keep track of it all better. I like the method, cuz it works for me...but I know that some people find it hard to follow. :) But since I am the director, they just have to learn to follow it my way. I just don't have the time to translate it to each different way of thinking. :)
