The MTI Show Collection: Looking for Christmas musicals
My name is Matt Glickstein, and I was recently hired as "performing arts coordinator" at a K-12 school in Lanai, Hawaii (only school on island). In the past, every year the school does an elementary winter program where the students perform as separate classes and grades. For this winter, I would love to do a K-5 production where the kids all perform together--I also run a performing arts academy after school--and I'm thinking these are the kids that could have the lead roles. The rest of the kids could be ensemble or chorus parts. I spent some time searching today for Christmas or holiday-themed children's musicals (without being religious--this is a public school), but didn't find anything quite right. If anyone has any suggestions, or even has references of where to look, I'd greatly appreciate it. Thanks!
The MTI Show Collection: Where to end ACT I in Disney's Little Mermaid Jr
Thank you everyone! The show was a huge success!! My original choice was the same as what Jason (see above) had done, but we decided to cut to intermission after Ariel's Part of Your World, Reprise 2, as the music lends itself as a perfect place to end an ACT. Yes, the 1st ACT is usually longer, but when you take into consideration that the patrons began coming into the theater 45minutes before the start of the show, then this worked out really well! See our trailer of the show on our YouTube Channel for MSB Productions2012 under the posted title:

The MTI Show Collection: Dear Edwina (not the junior version)
We are wanting to do the full version of Dear Edwina next year and are researching the production. In the past, we have used themtpit for approved backing for shows like Legally Blonde and Into the Woods, but Dear Edwina isn't availble through them.
MTI doesn't have a performance cd for the full version either.
We are preparing for live music, but wanting to see if there are any approved recordings to use as backing. The average age of our cast is 13 and we find it easier for them to rehearse and perform with pre-recorded music over live.
