MTI Show Support: Tyrone in Fame
Hhi Rhonda-Tyrone does not need to be played by a male African American cast member. Tyrone and Iris are boyfriend/girlfriend from the opposite side of the tracks. Iris is wealthy and he is not. This truly is the only contrast that is crucial for the story line.
Miscellany: Getting approval to do Ragtime, School Edition
I understand your problem with administration. Here is a little background that hopefully will support your decision. Your strongest argument is that the script choice using "nigger"is historically correct for the period. It was written with purpose and used dramatically for the audience to understand the depth of the story. It is truly one of the most "teachable moments" in the show. In the past, no approval changes have been granted by the authors for request of change of this text. This show as you know is a rich musical theater production, but just as rich for history teachers. Much of our American history is not pretty, and what a powerful way to educate and remind audiences of it.
I am thrilled you are doing this show...sounds like you have done your homework regarding casting and the message for your community.Keep me posted of your progress, happy to help you brainstorm further!
MTI Show Support: JR versus Regular version
Actually I am examining the differences between the JR shows and the regular versions. I feel the KIDS shows are definitely not a good fit for us. I love everything the JR show offers but just wish it was longer.
Are there particular JR shows that are longer than others? We did Alice in Wonderland JR last year and loved it but feedback from the audience was the it was too short compared to our usual productions. We are thinking about Xanadu, Fame, Into the Woods JR and/or Camp Rock this year but open to other suggestions.
Thanks soo much!
MTI Show Support: Is it possible to order music in a different key
Your question is asked often. Anyone feels your pain who teaches middle level boys, gotta love them. In the JR and KIds versions, the recordings are done in the keys that worked best for the age level, tested and tested, but we all have kids in between.
Check out our service called Transpositions on Demand:
Many use a peice of equipment to alter the pitch of the recording with great success.
Superscope PSD 340. It is a dual recording and CD Player that also takes any CD that you have and can change keys. The cost runs between $700-$1000, but worth the one time investment.
