The MTI Show Collection: Shrek can't hear!

Hi Briley,

with our cowls we recommend marking where you need to make the holes, then using a large heated nail and pushing it through the latex.

Hope this helps!

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.

The MTI Show Collection: Creating Water

Thanks for your help! We don't have a theater at our school so we performing at our high school. We are at the mercy of the limited lighting and space on their stage. We thought about gels but aren't really sure if there are enough lights to sacrifice one or two to a specific gel. We are down to around $800 after costumes and things. Our show is May 9,10 and 11.

MTI Show Support: JTF 2014

Hey Elizabeth,

While I'm not the expert, it's probably safer that you pick another show for the summer.  I have found that depending on where it is with copying of the show, times vary all summer long.  Although Jason Cocovonis or your MTI rep could better say if you called or emailed them directly.

The MTI Show Collection: Where to end ACT I in Disney's Little Mermaid Jr

When My theatre did this we did not have an intermission, but we were going to stop it right before the Les Poisons Scene.
