I am very interested, and received a license for Lion King Jr.  However, in reading through the license, I realize it states that only children in 8th grade and younger may perform in it.  This was supposed to be for our summer children's theater camp program, but I have teen interns in grades 9-12 that work with the students and also perform with them.  Is there any way to get exception from the rule?

I had a similar problem earlier. 

From what I've figured out, anyone under 18 can perform in a Jr. production. 

There is a separate license for people under 9th grade that's cheaper and gives you year-long rights to perform the play as many times as you would like. Could this be the one you accidentally applied for?

Sorry if this didn't help.
