Avenue Q Licensing Question
I heard a rumor that MTI required performance groups doing Avenue Q to either rent their puppets or build according to the original design specifications, but I couldn't find a comfirmation of this on the show page. So, how about it -- are original puppet designs legal? I should note that this is in reference to a college production.

Music Man Dance Music
Does anyone have either:1 . A recording of all of the dance music in the Music Man that actually aligns with the score?or2. A list of what measures in the score align with the music on any of the recordings? I'm having a heck of a time finding the music in the score that matches with what's on various recordings. And the choreographer has choreographed based on certain recordings, so I would rather just find it in the score. Specifically, I mean the Shipoopi, 76 Trombones, Marian Dance, It's You Ballet, Eulalie's Ballet, and the Chase Music.ThanksEmily McDuffee

What songs are in Edges???
So, I'm in the process of getting rights to perform "Edges", but I have a quick question...What songs are in the MTI licensed version of "Edges"?I've seen so many different songs that have been associated with this particular show. Some songs that I really love that weren't on the MTI information page for the show. So, from those who have used this version, what songs are in it?Thanks for any help!

Door to Wonderland...
Hi Everyone, I'm doing Alice in Wonderland Jr. this spring. Does anyone have any ideas on changing the image of the door so that it looks like Alice has really shrunk and door's grown taller and vice versa? I'm planning on using three Alices, but I want to change the door in some other way besides making him/her sit, stand and lay down. Thanks in advance.

13 the musical for middle school
Here's my 2nd try at posting this!I'm thinking about putting on 13 with my middle school students this year. Ironically (unfortunately) I think the show may inappropriate (language, themes) to be put on at a public school. Anyone have any thoughts on this , or how to "clean" up the show?Also, I saw the show on Broadway, and realize there was a good deal of material cut from the version that is available for production. Is it possible to make the same cuts? It seems to make sense that if the creators made these cuts for a more successful show, that they intended to keep these cuts for successful future productions. I know shows are to be performed as written, but it seems these cuts would enhance the show. Any ideas?

Hey everyone, Just tossing around some ideas for future shows and was wondering what the current feeling is toward High School Musical. I would be looking to do it with 7 & 8th graders, but wasn't sure if the fad is past it's prime. Will the kids get into it, or will they just roll their eyes?Thanks for any help!

Alice in Wonderland full version?
Does anyone know why only the Jr version is available and if/when the full version will be released? Are you able to use the Jr version, even if you are going to have adults in the cast, or is it for children's shows only?
