Performance CD

I don't see a performance cd listed in materials like it was for Mary Poppins.  Is this not available?  Not at this time but maybe in the future?

Gender Switch?

Does the licensing agreement allow for gender switching as has been allowed in the past? I’m specifically referring to Whoopi Goldberg as Pseudolus. Thanks for the help!

Hairspray JR with Latino & Asian students

Hi there!

My school is doing Hairspray JR this year. We are a diverse urban school and most of the students participating in theatre are Latino or Asian (we have very few students who are white or black that participate in the program). Are there suggestions for how to approach casting when students are non-white but are members of other races that are not African American?

Can we use student-created artwork on fliers and merchandise for Beauty and the Beast?

We have licensed Beauty and the Beast. Normally we use artwork created by students on our fliers and tshirts. Is this allowed under licensing agreement for Beauty and the Beast?

Do Jr. plays always come with year-long rights?

In the "help" section of Into the Woods Jr. someone from MTI answered a question saying, "Purchasing the showkit provides you with the licensing right for one calendar year." 

In the showkit section of the site however, it says that they created "a special license just for accredited schools grades K-9. This license includes all the ShowKit® resources, plus the right to perform the show as many times as you would like within one year." This seems to suggest that to recieve the rights for a full year, the performers have to be in grades K-9, however we can get the license for people up to 18 years of age. 

Which one is it? Does any Jr. musical automatically come with the rights for a full year, or do the performers have to be in K-9?
