MTI Shines Among the Top High School Musicals and Plays of the School Year!

As another school year wraps up, the Educational Theatre Association (EdTA) has released the results of its annual Play Survey! The survey includes the top 10 most-produced musicals and plays (both full-length and short) in U.S. high schools for the 2022-2023 academic year. Over 2.3k responses were recorded.

This school year, MTI shone brightly. We are thrilled to license 7 of the top 10 full-length musicals (two tied for 5th) , 10 of the 11 (two tied for 7 th and 10 th respectively) short musicals, and one play ranked among the most-produced full-length plays. All of these shows are nurturing new generations of theatre artists and bringing joy to their communities.

“MTI congratulates the authors and creative teams involved in each of the shows listed on the Most-Performed lists," said MTI President and CEO Drew Cohen. "We especially want to thank the authors and rightsholders of the 18 MTI-represented shows on these list. Along with the many other titles just beyond the top 10 lists, these shows allow MTI to bring to joy of musical theater to more schools around the world than any other licensing company.”
