THEATRE AS EDUCATION MUSIC THEATRE INTERNATIONAL (MTI) is one of the world’s leading dramatic licensing agencies, granting schools and theatres around the world the rights to perform the largest selection of great musicals from Broadway and beyond. MTI is particularly dedicated to the idea of theatre as education. In 1997, we created the MTI Broadway Junior Collection® for younger performers. THE MTI BROADWAY JUNIOR COLLECTION® DIVIDES INTO TWO CATEGORIES TO ACCOMMODATE DIFFERENT AGE RANGES:

60-MINUTE MUSICALS FOR PERFORMANCE BY

MIDDLE SCHOOL STUDENTS

Why Choose the MTI BROADWAY JUNIOR COLLECTION®?

KID-TESTED AND TEACHER-ENDORSED, THE MTI BROADWAY JUNIOR COLLECTION® IS THE PERFECT WAY TO INTRODUCE YOUR SCHOOL TO THE JOYS OF MUSICAL THEATRE.

30-MINUTE MUSICALS FOR PERFORMANCE BY

ELEMENTARY SCHOOL STUDENTS


With an MTI Broadway Junior Collection® show, putting on a musical will be the most cost-effective program you can establish for your school—and it has clear benefits for all involved. • For once, here’s a project that can involve a nearly unlimited number of students without costing an arm and a leg. Ensembles in MTI Broadway Junior Collection® shows can be as numerous as 100 students, making the material’s cost work out to less than $4 per student. • Teachers won’t have to spend hours writing original musicals to fit their students’ acting skills and vocal ranges. • The process of putting on a show cultivates school spirit and generates community support. • CURRICULUM CONNECTIONS: A musical helps students make connections across a variety of subjects. Teachers can use the musical as context in teaching History, Science, and English. Art, Music, and Physical Education classes can be geared towards creating props, learning songs, and practicing dance steps.

OVER 30,000 SUCCESS STORIES AND GROWING Since 1997, over 30,000 productions of shows from the MTI Broadway Junior Collection® have taught kids and entertained audiences around the world. The success of our shows is best measured in the self-confidence, discipline, character, cooperation and self-esteem instilled in the children who have participated in the shows, as they master the diverse skills necessary to present a musical.

STUDIES HAVE SHOWN THAT STUDENTS INVOLVED IN THEATRE DEVELOP BETTER COGNITIVE SKILLS, EXHIBIT HIGHER SELF-ESTEEM, BUILD COLLABORATIVE AND SOCIAL SKILLS, DISPLAY BETTER STUDY HABITS AND CONSISTENTLY PERFORM HIGHER ON STANDARDIZED TESTS.

MUSICALS AS CURRICULUM MTI is now represented in the Macmillan/McGrawHill general music textbook “Spotlight on Music.” Students in grades one through eight are introduced to some of the greatest musicals ever written, along with lessons about history, art, language and social sciences. The “Broadway For Kids” section of these books represents the first time that “MTI mini-musicals” (excerpts from our MTI JR. and MTI KIDS shows) are available for classroom study and performance as part of school curriculum.


The music is written in keys appropriate for young voices. All shows can be expanded to accommodate as many performers as can fit on your stage. www.mtishows.com • www.broadwayjr.com • licensing@mtishows.com

30-MINUTE

MUSICALS FOR PERFORMANCE BY

ELEMENTARY

SCHOOL STUDENTS MTI KIDS shows are specifically designed for the energies (and attention spans!) of elementary school students. At just half an hour in length, MTI KIDS shows are long enough to tell a complete story through script, song and dance, while short enough to be well within your cast’s abilities. MTI KIDS titles include adaptations of classic Disney films, such as Sleeping Beauty and The Aristocats, to beloved children’s books, such as A Year With Frog And Toad and Roald Dahl’s Willy Wonka.

60-MINUTE

MUSICALS FOR PERFORMANCE BY

MIDDLE

SCHOOL STUDENTS Picking a musical for middle-schoolers can be challenging. You not only have to find a show that will excite your students, you also have to make sure the score can accommodate young voices—some of which could change at any time. Successfully staging a two-hour musical can seem impossible! That’s why we created MTI JR. titles. Every MTI JR. show is specifically adapted for adolescent voices, saving your students from struggling through numbers they won’t be prepared to tackle for a few more years. Since all shows are roughly 60-70 minutes long, these adaptations are better suited for the stamina of younger actors—and the attention spans of younger audiences! MTI JR. shows range from Disney favorites (Beauty & The Beast, High School Musical) to Broadway classics (Fiddler On The Roof, Guys And Dolls) to modern works (Once On This Island, Dear Edwina). We also license shows written only for MTI JR., like Disney’s Mulan and Roald Dahl’s Willy Wonka. With a variety of subject matter and required skill levels, MTI JR. musicals redefine the middle school theatre experience.

With a delightfully fun score, lovable characters, and one of the most deliciously evil villains in the Disney canon, this stage adaptation is certain to charm and delight all audiences. And with a highly expandable chorus, the stage could easily be filled with 101 performers! THE SONGS

Charles Perrault

THE STORY It’s Princess Aurora’s sixteenth birthday, and Flora, Fauna and Merryweather must use their fairy magic to save her from the spell of evil sorceress Maleficent! This classic fairy tale told Disney-style has many roles for a large chorus, from King Stefan and Queen Stefanie’s Loyal Subjects to Maleficent’s slimy Goons. Everyone will want to sing and dance along to the classic “Once Upon a Dream” and fun new numbers like “Goon Conga” and “Let’s Have Some Magic Now.” THE SONGS

Hail to Princess Aurora, Maleficent!, A Curse on the Princess, Merryweather’s Gift, Briar Rose, Find the Girl!, I Wonder, Once Upon a Dream, A Little Magic Now, Goon Conga, The Battle, No Time to Lose, Happy Ending/Finale

CAST INFORMATION 7 principals, 6 featured roles, plus ensemble WAYS TO EXPAND Maleficent can certainly have lots of Goons and Briar Rose needs all the Fairy help she can get. MUSICAL DIFFICULTY There are solos for Briar Rose, Maleficent, and the Fairies. The majority of the songs in the show are ensemble numbers and the music is slightly more difficult than other shows in MTI KIDS. STAGING DEMANDS The production can be staged very simply with a few specific props.

CONSIDERATIONS Sleeping Beauty KIDS is a great show for a large group of students. Between the Fairies, the Goons, and the Forest Animals there are plenty of roles that should excite all different types of performers. The songs in the show are all based on Tchaikovsky’s classic score, which makes the score slightly more difficult than some other shows, but it is still completely accessible for a student audience. INVOLVE THE COMMUNITY Without the forest Briar Rose would have had nowhere to hide from Maleficent. Talk to a local forest ranger about arranging a visit to a local forest. Take a tour and learn about the different kinds of trees that grow well in your area. Then find an area in your community where you can plant new trees.

Based on the Books by

Arnold Lobel

THE STORY Arnold Lobel’s well-loved characters hop from the page to the stage in Robert and Willie Reale’s musical adaptation. Conceived by Mr. Lobel’s daughter, Adrianne Lobel, A Year With Frog And Toad KIDS remains true to the spirit of the original stories as it follows two great friends, the cheerful and popular Frog and the rather grumpy Toad, through four fun-filled seasons. A score that bubbles with melody and wit, its jazzy upbeat sound is a perfect match for the hopping, crawling and flying denizens that inhabit Frog and Toad’s world. Adapted from the Broadway production, and destined to become a classic, A Year With Frog And Toad KIDS is inventive, exuberant and totally enchanting. THE SONGS

A Year With Frog And Toad, Getta Loada Toad, Cookies, Down The Hill, Merry Almost Christmas

STAGING DEMANDS This production is one of the easiest to stage and the Choreographic DVD in the ShowKit™ gives you ideas on how to create the sledding hill. CONSIDERATIONS You will need two good actors and singers for the roles of Frog and Toad. The majority of the other characters work and sing in larger groups. It is the perfect show to cast different classrooms as each of the different animal groups in the show. INVOLVE THE COMMUNITY Have your cast start a mentor program with younger students in your school. Get copies of the Frog and Toad books from the library and have the students practice reading one or more of the stories out loud. Once they are comfortable with the stories, arrange a time for them to visit the pre-school or youngest students at your school and read the stories to them. Then invite these students to come and see a performance of your show.

CONSIDERATIONS Willy Wonka KIDS has a number of great roles for both boys and girls and can easily be expanded to accommodate students in many grade levels, making this a true all-school show. Also, the Director’s Guide contains great suggestions on how to create Wonka’s chocolate factory easily and inexpensively.

Lewis Carroll THE STORY Join Alice’s madcap adventures in Wonderland as she chases the White Rabbit, races the Dodo Bird, gets tied up with the Tweedles, raps with a bubble-blowing Caterpillar, and beats the Queen of Hearts at her own game! Roles are plentiful, including three Cheshire Cats and dozens of other wonderfully wacky characters. This fast-paced stage adaptation of Alice in Wonderland features updated dialogue and new arrangements of such classic Disney songs as “I’m Late,” “The Un-birthday Song” and “Zip-A-Dee-Doo-Dah.” THE SONGS

CAST INFORMATION 10 principals, 9 featured roles, plus ensemble WAYS TO EXPAND There are lots of Wonderland characters you can add throughout the musical including Flowers, Sea Creatures, Royal Cardsmen, etc. You can also have any number of children in the opening and closing scene in the park. MUSICAL DIFFICULTY There are quite a few solo numbers and solo lines in this score which makes it one of the more challenging MTI JR. shows. However, this show is a great showcase if you have students of all different musical skill levels. STAGING DEMANDS This show allows for a great variety of staging in the crazy Wonderland world. Ideas for the how to stage Alice falling through the Rabbit Hole are found in your Director’s Guide.

CONSIDERATIONS Alice in Wonderland JR. is the perfect show if you have large number of talented singers and actors. Because of the episodic nature of the show every character will have their chance to be the focus of the story. The majority of the show takes place in Wonderland, which will allow you to be as creative as you can with the scenery, costumes and characters. INVOLVE THE COMMUNITY Talk to your local parks department about working with them for a weekend. Your cast can help with park and playground clean up or even possibly plant your own flower garden. If you get to plant your own garden, use the flowers and characters from the story for inspiration for your planting and layout choices.

THE STORY Belle yearns to escape her provincial life...and her brute of a suitor, Gaston. But when she finds her father in danger, she sacrifices her freedom to save him and becomes a captive in the Beast’s enchanted castle. Dancing flatware, menacing wolves, and singing furniture fill the stage with thrills in this beloved fairy tale about very different people finding strength in one another and learning how to love. Beauty And The Beast ran on Broadway for 13 years and has played in more than 20 countries, making it an international sensation! THE SONGS

Belle, Belle (Reprise), Home, Gaston, Gaston (Reprise), Be Our Guest, Something There, Human Again, Beauty and the Beast, The Mob Song, Home (Reprise), Finale

MUSICAL DIFFICULTY The show includes quite a bit of music, with several solos for Belle and solo songs for Gaston, Lumiere and Mrs. Potts. A few of the ensemble songs include challenging harmony and provide an opportunity to showcase a musically talented cast. STAGING DEMANDS While the castle and the magic of the Beast’s transformation are some of the highlights of this production, many of the effects can be achieved with very simple theatrical conventions. Tricks and tips are outlined in the Director’s Guide. The ensemble numbers do not require any complex choreography but there are many opportunities to showcase the strong dancers in your cast. CONSIDERATIONS Beauty And The Beast JR. has dozens of stand-out featured roles and several strong leading roles for both boys and girls. Due to its fairy tale setting, there is a wonderful opportunity for creative production elements. INVOLVE THE COMMUNITY Follow Belle’s love for books and hold a book drive for your community’s local library. Perhaps invite a librarian to discuss his or her career and how this particular story evolved over time.

Patricia Cotter Based on the 1998 Disney Film Mulan and the Story Fa Mulan by

Robert D. San Souci THE STORY Travel back to the legendary, story-telling days of ancient China with this action-packed stage adaptation of Disney’s Mulan. The Huns have invaded, and it is up to the misfit Mulan and her mischievous sidekick Mushu to save the Emperor! Mulan JR. is a heartwarming celebration of culture, honor and a fighting spirit. The score includes favorites like “Reflection,” “Honor to Us All” and “I’ll Make a Man Out of You” as well as new songs that will get your audience up on its feet! THE SONGS

Written in Stone, Honor to Us All, Reflection, Keep ‘Em Guessin’, I’ll Make a Man, A Girl Worth Fighting For, Finale

CAST INFORMATION 11 principals, 10 featured roles, plus ensemble WAYS TO EXPAND Mulan JR. allows for a large ensemble of Soldiers, Brides-To-Be and Family Members. The show is also written to use a large ensemble of actors supporting the show as a chorus. MUSICAL DIFFICULTY With many solos and solo lines for Mulan, the 5 Ancestors, Shang, Mushu, the three soldiers and ensemble singing with harmonies, this show is musically one of the more challenging of the MTI JR. titles. There are a number of solo line opportunities if you have a large and talented cast. STAGING DEMANDS The ShowKit™ Choreographic DVD will give you lots of ideas on how to stage the large group numbers, and includes a demonstration of the rope trick performed during, “I’ll Make a Man Out of You.”

CONSIDERATIONS Mulan JR. has a large number of both female and male principal characters who all need to be able to sing solo lines. Because the musical centers on a woman pretending to be a man, there are 6 or 7 major roles that definitely need be played by boys. There are also a good number of small, featured roles in the show to showcase your ensemble members. INVOLVE THE COMMUNITY Try to find a member of your local community or in a community nearby who can come in to talk to your cast about traditional Chinese customs and heritage. If possible have them read a version of the original Mulan poem to your cast in the Chinese language. Finally, work with a local restaurant to plan a dinner where you give the students the opportunity to sample traditional Chinese food.

THE STORY The popular pint-sized, pin-striped classic leaps off the silver screen and onto the stage. Like the film, this wild and wacky musical includes a child’s dream come true: a classic pie fight fought with “splurge blasters” which spew forth “silly string” instead of pies. With a catchy, swinging score by the composer of The Muppet Movie, Bugsy Malone JR. includes a chorus which may be expanded to include as many performers as desired. THE SONGS

Bugsy Malone, Fat Sam’s Grand Slam, That’s Why They Call Him..., Tomorrow, Show Business, Bad Guys, Ordinary Fool, My Name Is Tallulah, Down and Out, You Give A Little Love

STAGING DEMANDS Notes on how to create the “splurging” effects are included in the Director’s Guide.

NEW TITLE! THE STORY Based on the popular picture book, The Trip by Ezra Jack Keats, and featuring a score from the composer of Wicked, Captain Louie JR. tells the story of the magical trip Louie makes in his Red Plane and the lessons he learns. Young Louie feels lonely in his new neighborhood. Looking for something to cheer himself up on Halloween Night, Louie returns to his old neighborhood in an imaginary journey on the wings of his favorite toy, his little red plane. The book by Anthony Stein is full of tricks and treats, and features the incomparable music and lyrics of Stephen Schwartz.

WAYS TO EXPAND There are endless featured parts that are sometimes doubled/tripled by small groups of performers – assign these lines to individual performers to expand your cast!

CONSIDERATIONS Dear Edwina JR. provides a rare opportunity to feature many strong female performers. While there are still roles for boys, this show is the solution for groups that can never find enough boys to be in their musicals.

Jerry Bock THE STORY In the little village of Anatevka, Tevye, a poor dairyman, tries to instill in his five daughters the traditions of his tight-knit Jewish community in the face of changing social mores and the growing anti-semitism of Czarist Russia. Its legendary charm, humor, warmth, honesty and universal themes cut across barriers of race, class, nationality and religion, touching audiences throughout the world. An epic piece of theatre, Fiddler On The Roof JR. covers the full range of human emotions, presenting young performers with a unique acting challenge – especially the mature young man starring as Tevye, among the most memorable and rewarding roles in musical theatre. THE SONGS

Tradition, Matchmaker, If I Were A Rich Man, Sabbath Prayer, To Life, Sunrise Sunset, Do You Love Me?, Far From The Home I Love, Anatevka

MUSICAL DIFFICULTY With many featured solos and large amounts of ensemble singing, this score requires slightly stronger singers than other MTI JR. titles. Numbers involving the entire company are usually in unison or two-part harmony. STAGING DEMANDS Strong dancers are required for some featured choreography, and the ensemble should be able to move fairly well. The ShowKit™ Choreographic DVD provides step-by-step instructions for choreographing the larger numbers. CONSIDERATIONS Fiddler On The Roof JR. has some of the most memorable and rewarding roles in musical theatre, providing kids with an opportunity to explore emotionally complex characters and highly dramatic situations. With a lot of singing and dancing, this show is a little more challenging than other titles. INVOLVE THE COMMUNITY Have your students research when your community was founded and the heritage of the individuals who founded it.

NEW TITLE! THE STORY A magical Bulletin Board comes to life and grants Stanley his wish to do amazing things – but with a twist: the board falls on Stanley, making him flat – really, really flat! So flat, that Stanley can be sent through the mail from adventure to adventure. Based on the popular children’s book, The Musical Adventures of Flat Stanley JR. follows our hero around the world as he “raps” with the Declaration of Independence, thwarts a robbery at the Louvre Museum and stars in a movie!

MUSICAL DIFFICULTY While the music isn’t difficult, there are a lot of solos in this show, both large and small. There are also great ensemble numbers for the whole cast. STAGING DEMANDS The Director’s Guide provides sample instructions to create the Flat Stanley “flat suit.” (Check out a sneak peek of the new Director’s Guide in the back!) CONSIDERATIONS This show has a number of great roles for both boys and girls and can easily be expanded to accommodate students in many grade levels, making this a true all-school musical.

THE STORY Set in Damon Runyon’s mythical New York City, and considered one of the best musicals of all time, this Broadway classic introduces us to colorful characters who have become legends in the canon: Sarah Brown, the up­right but uptight “mission doll,” out to reform the evildoers of Times Square; Sky Masterson, the slick, high-rolling gambler who woos her on a bet and ends up falling in love; Adelaide, the nightclub performer whose chronic cold is brought on by the fact she’s been engaged to the same man for 14 years; and Nathan Detroit, her devoted fiancé, desperate to find a spot for his infamous floating dice game. THE SONGS

Fugue For Tinhorns, Follow The Fold, The Oldest Established, I’ll Know, A Bushel And A Peck, Adelaide’s Lament, Guys And Dolls, If I Were A Bell, I’ve Never Been In Love Before, Luck Be A Lady, Sit Down You’re Rockin’ The Boat, Marry The Man Today

CAST INFORMATION 12 principals, plus featured ensemble WAYS TO EXPAND Add more players to the Mission Band, or double the number of Hot Box Girls. If you still need to expand more, simply add more guys and dolls! MUSICAL DIFFICULTY There are solos for Adelaide, Sarah, Sky, Nathan, Nicely, Benny, and Rusty Charlie – all requiring fairly strong singers. The full ensemble and small groups numbers will occasionally engage your students in three-part harmony or counterpoint singing.

CONSIDERATIONS Guys And Dolls JR. is considered by many to be the perfect musical comedy, because it has a great score, fun, fast-paced book, and some of the most memorable characters ever seen on a stage. With enough featured roles to accommodate a large cast and highlight kids of all talent levels, this show is an ideal introduction to the American musical.

With unforgettable roles, little dancing and no chorus, Into The Woods JR. showcases a medium-sized ensemble of talented singers and actors.

CONSIDERATIONS Into The Woods JR. is a good show for strong featured performers, providing kids an opportunity to explore emotionally complex characters and highly dramatic situations. With a lot of solo singing, this show could be more challenging than other titles, and might be better for older children. INVOLVE THE COMMUNITY Bring your students to a national park and have them explore the woods. Have one of the park rangers talk to them about what kind of animals specifically live in that forest and the dangers of being in the woods alone. Next, work with the park rangers to bring branches and other natural items from the woods back into your school to use as scenery.

PERFECT FOR LARGE ENSEMBLES, FEATURED ROLES, STRONG MALE AND FEMALE LEADS, ALL AGES CAST INFORMATION 12 principal roles, plus large ensemble WAYS TO EXPAND Fill the stage with the entire population of River City – great for using a wide age range of children. And if you still need to add more, don’t forget the band! MUSICAL DIFFICULTY There are large solos for Harold and Marian, with many other featured solos throughout the score. Ensemble numbers feature unison singing or simple two or three-part harmony. Four strong singers will be required for the Barbershop Quartet (simplified for young voices).

Book, Music and Lyrics by

Based on a Story by

Meredith Willson

Meredith Willson and Frank Lacey

THE STORY The Music Man is an American musical classic, following fasttalking traveling salesman Harold Hill and his visit to River City, Iowa where he meets and falls in love with the willful spinster librarian, Marian Paroo. With his fast-talking style, “Professor” Hill convinces the town to form a marching band and adopt his revolutionary music program, “The Think System,” or face the moral decline of the youngsters of River City. Chaos ensues as Hill’s credentials are questioned and he is forced to prove himself to the citizens of River City. The Music Man JR. is the perfect musical for young people. THE SONGS

Rock Island, Iowa Stubborn, Ya Got Trouble, Piano Lesson/ If You Don’t Mind, Goodnight My Someone, Seventy-Six Trombones, Sincere, Pick-A-Little Talk-A-Little, Wells Fargo Wagon, Shipoopi, Gary Indiana, ‘Til There Was You

STAGING DEMANDS Strong dancers are required for some featured choreography, and the ensemble should be able to move fairly well. The Choreography DVD included in your ShowKit™ provides step-by-step instructions for choreographing the larger numbers. CONSIDERATIONS The Music Man JR. features star turns for a young male and female performer, but is also rich with great roles for performers of every level. In fact, the show features over twenty-four speaking roles, meaning lots of featured parts for young performers. The score also provides opportunities to showcase students with strong vocal or dance abilities. INVOLVE THE COMMUNITY Have your students visit a retirement community and talk to some of the residents about attending community social events in their past. Discuss similarities between scenes from the show and the real life experiences of these new people they have just met.

Based on the Novel My Love, My Love by

Rosa Guy THE STORY This is the story of Ti Moune, an island peasant girl who rescues and falls in love with Daniel, a young man from a wealthy family. When Daniel is returned to his people, the Gods who rule the island guide Ti Moune on a quest to test the strength of her love against the powerful forces of prejudice, hatred and death. With its touching story and catchy pop and Caribbean-flavored score by the creators of Seussical and the Broadway smash Ragtime, Once On This Island JR. is a multi-cultural feast for the heart, mind, and soul. THE SONGS

Prologue/We Dance, One Small Girl, Waiting For Life, And The Gods Heard Her Prayer, Rain, Discovering Daniel, Pray, Forever Yours, Ti Moune, Mama Will Provide, The Human Heart, The Ball, Ti Moune’s Dance, Andrea Sequence, Promises, Wedding Sequence, A Part Of Us, Why We Tell The Story

STAGING DEMANDS With virtually no set and little technical requirements, the ensemble functions very prominently in the action. Creative dance or movement-driven staging is also part of the show’s style, calling upon performers to portray trees, wild animals and a fierce rainstorm. CONSIDERATIONS Told in a presentational style, Once On This Island JR. is equally effective regardless of its cast size and features minimal – though colorful – sets and costumes that capture the imagination of the audience. There are opportunities to highlight individual singers and dancers, while still focusing mainly on an ensemble feel. INVOLVE THE COMMUNITY Have a local ethnic dance troupe come to your school to work with your students on an ethnic dance. Discuss with the troupe the cultural origins of this traditional dance, and encourage the students to explore cultural dance traditions in their own heritage.

PERFECT FOR LARGE ENSEMBLES, GOOD SINGERS, STRONG MALE AND FEMALE LEADS CAST INFORMATION 11 featured roles, plus ensemble WAYS TO EXPAND Add additional Demons, Lethargarians, or Shoppers and Vendors in the Dictionopolis marketplace! MUSICAL DIFFICULTY This is one of our more musically difficult shows. Strong singers are a must for the principle roles. There are a fair amount of ensemble numbers. STAGING DEMANDS Since a complicated set isn’t necessary for this show, choreography can play a large part in the show. The ensemble numbers offer many opportunities for storytelling movement—and you don’t need a dance background, just use your imagination! Based on the Novel by

COMING SOON! THE STORY Milo is bored. So bored, in fact, that the Demons of Ignorance appear in his room to ensure that he’ll continue to do nothing, thus becoming their next victim. But when the Phantom Tollbooth mysteriously arrives, Milo hops in and begins the adventure of his life. With the help of the watchdog, Tock, Milo has to persuade the dueling rulers of Dictionopolis and Digitopolis to rescue their sisters, Rhyme and Reason, thus ending the strangeness that plagues both cities. THE SONGS

Prologue, Another Boring Afternoon, Gotcha, The Birth of the Booth, The Whether Man, The Lethargarian Shuffle, Tock’s Narrative, At the Market, Do I Dare?, Giant/Midget, Hail, Digitopolis, Subtraction Stew, Gotcha (Reprise), Milo, The Return of Rhyme and Reason, Finale

CONSIDERATIONS Since The Phantom Tollbooth JR. is set in a world of the imagination, let your creativity run wild in designing sets and costumes. Your students will have a lot of insight, too! There are many ensemble parts and featured roles, some of which can be double-cast if you have a limited number of students. This is a great piece to showcase your stronger singers. INVOLVE THE COMMUNITY When most people are bored, a magical tollbooth doesn’t whisk them away—they have to think up things to do on their own. One excellent way to combat boredom is to channel your energy towards helping someone else. Have your students learn about volunteer activities in their area by inviting organizers to speak at your school, and by seeing firsthand how those organizations help those who need it. Urge your students to volunteer at one of those organizations, or find ways to help their community on their own.

PERFECT FOR LARGE ENSEMBLES, GOOD SINGERS, STRONG MALE AND FEMALE LEADS CAST INFORMATION 10 Principals, plus ensemble WAYS TO EXPAND You can always give the Major General more daughters, or fill out the ranks of policemen. And if nothing else, your stage should be filled with lots of pirates! MUSICAL DIFFICULTY There are solos for all principals, and many featured sections for the ensemble. There is a lot of ensemble and small group singing, with parts written in unison or simple two-part harmony.

Book and Lyrics by

Music by

Sir William S. Gilbert

Sir Arthur S. Sullivan

THE STORY Wacky, irreverent and as entertaining today as it was when it first opened in 1879, The Pirates Of Penzance JR. spins a hilarious farce of sentimental pirates, bumbling policemen, dim-witted young lovers, dewyeyed daughters and an eccentric Major-General, all morally bound to the often-ridiculous dictates of honor and duty. THE SONGS

Pour O Pour The Pirate Sherry, When Fredric Was A Little Lad, Oh Better Far To Live And Die, Oh False One You Have Deceived Me, Climbing Over Rocky Mountain, Stop Ladies Pray!, Oh Is There Not One Maiden Here, Poor Wandering One!, Stay We Must Not Lose Our Senses, I Am The Very Model Of A Modern Major General, Oh Men Of Dark And Dismal Fate, Oh Dry The Glistening Tear, When The Foeman Bares His Steel, When You Had Left Our Pirate Fold, Tarantara Tarantara!, A Rollicking Band Of Pirates We, With Cat-Like Tread Upon Our Prey We Steal, Now What Is This And What Is That?, Finale

STAGING DEMANDS While not a lot of dance is required, the Major General’s daughters could highlight a few female dancers. If the pirates or policemen have any physical comedy or acrobatic skills, those could certainly come in handy. CONSIDERATIONS The Pirates Of Penzance JR. is a great show for a large ensemble with plenty of good singers. There are many great featured parts to showcase all talents and levels of ability – including some great roles for performers with comedic skills. INVOLVE THE COMMUNITY In the show, Frederick has been raised since childhood by Ruth, his nursemaid. Have your students go to a local preschool or day care center and perform a few of their numbers from the show. Let them stay awhile after the performance to interact with the younger children and gain a deeper understanding of the responsibilities of caring for children.

David McCall Book by

Scott Ferguson, George Keating and Kyle Hall Music and Lyrics by

Lynn Ahrens, Bob Dorough, Dave Frishberg, Kathy Mandry, George Newall and Tom Yohe THE STORY Tom, a school teacher nervous about his first day of teaching, tries to relax by watching TV. Suddenly, the Schoolhouse Rock bunch appear in his rec room and proceed to show him how to win his students over with imagination and music, through beloved Schoolhouse Rock songs that cover a variety of subjects: Math, Science, History and Grammar. Like the classic television series, Schoolhouse Rock Live! JR. is a hip, entertaining and educational treat that shows young people that learning can be as fun as you choose to make it. THE SONGS

Schoolhouse Rocky, A Noun Is A Person Place Or Thing, Three Is A Magic Number, Unpack Your Adjectives, Just A Bill, The Preamble, Do The Circulation, Conjunction Junction, Great American Melting Pot, Elbow Room, Interplanet Janet, Interjections

CAST INFORMATION 6 principals, plus ensemble WAYS TO EXPAND Originally conceived for a cast of six, the MTI JR. version is designed to allow you to expand your cast to six principals with a choir that can be as large as your stage can accommodate. MUSICAL DIFFICULTY There are solos for the six principals, plus featured solos to be assigned from The Choir. With most numbers involving the full ensemble, the songs are arranged for unison or simple two-part harmony. STAGING DEMANDS The loose, revue-like structure allows for a great deal of flexibility in staging and cast size from number to number as well as for the entire show. Set and costume design can be as simple or complex as your budget or imagination will allow!

CONSIDERATIONS One of the easiest MTI JR. shows to produce, Schoolhouse Rock Live! JR. can be performed simply or grandly, using whatever level of staging and design you are able to contribute. And because most of the songs are so familiar and easy to learn, rehearsals are bound to be a snap! INVOLVE THE COMMUNITY Have your students research the heritage of the people of your community to discover their hometown’s own “Great American Melting Pot.” Plan a performance of the show that you can invite people from all of these different ethnic backgrounds to attend and then join the cast for a reception following the show.

Lynn Ahrens, Stephen Flaherty and Eric Idle Based on the Works of

Dr. Seuss Music Supervised, Adapted and Produced by

Bryan Louiselle THE STORY “After all those years being stuck on a page, Did you ever imagine you’d see me on stage?” So says the mischievous Cat in the Hat at the onset of this fantastical, magical, musical extravaganza! Lynn Ahrens and Stephen Flaherty have lovingly brought to life all of our favorite Dr. Seuss characters, including Horton the Elephant, Gertrude McFuzz, Lazy Mayzie, and all of the Whos of Whoville! The score is a Seussian Gumbo of musical styles, ranging from Latin to pop, swing to gospel, and R&B to funk! So let your toes tap, your fingers snap, and your imagination run wild! THE SONGS

Oh, The Thinks You Can Think!, Biggest Blame Fool, Here On Who, How To Raise A Child, It’s Possible, Alone In The Universe, Amayzing Mayzie, Monkey Around, Notice Me, Horton, How Lucky You Are, Egg, Nest And Tree, Solla Sollew, All For You

CAST INFORMATION 10 principals, 6 featured roles, plus ensemble WAYS TO EXPAND You can cast as many Wickersham Brothers and Bird Girls as you like to fill out those songs and numbers. Additionally, the jungle, underwater and circus scenes allow for as many characters as you want to add. MUSICAL DIFFICULTY There are large Solos for Horton, JoJo, Mayzie, Gertrude, Sour Kangaroo and Cat In The Hat. Most of the ensemble music in the show is simple to learn but some of the songs are quite wordy and will need good diction. STAGING DEMANDS Production can be staged very simply with a few levels and fun props. Look to your Director’s Guide for simple and creative ideas.

CONSIDERATIONS Seussical JR. is a great show for large groups of students who enjoy singing. It is also a good show for a cast of students who enjoy playing larger than life characters. You will need to have a number of strong singers who are also good dancers or movers to play the Wickersham Brothers and the Bird Girls. INVOLVE THE COMMUNITY Talk to your local library or bookstore to see if you can find a time to have some of your cast members read stories to young children. Choose one of the stories that features one of the characters found in Seussical JR. Beyond being a good way to give back to your community, this project will also improve your cast members’ storytelling skills.

NEW TITLE! THE STORY Thoroughly Modern Millie is a high-spirited musical romp that has everyone dancing the Charleston. It’s the zany new 1920’s musical that took Broadway by storm! Taking place in New York City in 1922, Thoroughly Modern Millie JR. tells the story of young Millie Dillmount, who moves to the city in search of a new life for herself. Full of intrigue and jazz and based on the popular movie, the stage version of Thoroughly Modern Millie JR. includes a full score of new songs and bright dance numbers. Frisky flappers, dashing leading men and a dragon-lady of a villainess audiences love to hate make this show a perfectly constructed evening of madcap merriment. And with the role of Millie Dillmount, musical theatre has found a new heroine for the ages. THE SONGS

Not For The Life Of Me, Thoroughly Modern Millie, They Don’t Know, What Do I Need With Love?, Only In New York, Jimmy, Forget About The Boy, Muqin, Long As I’m Here With You, Gimme Gimme

STAGING DEMANDS This show has a lot of numbers involving choreography including some that include basic tap dancing. The Choreography DVD included in your ShowKit™ provides step-by-step instructions for choreographing some of the numbers. CONSIDERATIONS Thoroughly Modern Millie JR. is set in the 1920’s and has a great jazzinfused score. Also, don’t be afraid of the Mandarin in the show.

Roald Dahl

NEW TITLE! THE STORY Roald Dahl’s timeless story of the world-famous candy man and his quest to find an heir comes to life in this stage adaptation of Charlie And The Chocolate Factory, and showcases songs from the classic family film Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory. The memorable score features “The Candy Man,” “Pure Imagination,”  “Oompa Loompa” and “I Want It Now” by Academy® and Grammy Award®-winners Leslie Bricusse and Anthony Newley, neatly fitted into a new script adapted under the auspices of the Dahl Estate.

CAST INFORMATION 12 principals, 6 supporting roles, plus ensemble WAYS TO EXPAND Some of the most beloved characters of this story, the OompaLoompas, have a great deal to do in the show and you can cast as many of them as you like. There is also plenty of room for additional children for the Candyman and as Townspeople. MUSICAL DIFFICULTY While the music isn’t difficult there are a lot of solos in this show, both large and small. There are also great ensemble numbers for the whole cast. STAGING DEMANDS There are no big choreographic numbers in this show so it is perfect for beginners.

CONSIDERATIONS Willy Wonka JR. has a number of great roles for both boys and girls and can easily be expanded to accommodate students in many grade levels, making this a true all-school show. Also, the Director’s Guide contains great suggestions on how to create Wonka’s chocolate factory easily and inexpensively. INVOLVE THE COMMUNITY The Bucket household consists of grandparents, parents, and children living together.

MUSIC THEATRE INTERNATIONAL and iTheatrics have redesigned the look, feel and content of our ShowKitsTM to ensure they remain the absolute best educational musicals available anywhere. The first title to be released in this format is The Musical Adventures of Flat Stanley JR. Eventually all of our titles will be updated to match this new format. FEATURES OF THE NEW SHOWKIT INCLUDE A fully re-conceived Director’s Guide, patterned after Broadway production show books. Features of this Guide include:

• A three-ring binder (versus a traditionally bound book) allowing you to carry all of your production information in one place and expand and customize the binder to meet your production needs. • The Actor’s Script section of the Guide features a full-sized script for easier viewing. • Expanded resources in all production and curriculum aspects that reach three levels of directing experience: beginning, intermediate and advanced. • A media disk of resources including audition sides and editable forms including a fully editable program!

We’re working on an ambitious schedule to update all of our MTI Broadway Junior Collection® (MTI JR. and MTI KIDS) musicals to this new and exciting format, so stay tuned for future announcements!
