MTI Show Support: Shrek Jr. Censorship?
This is why I think I might save this for my community youth theatre group and pass on it for my school group (elementary). We typically do jr shows, though. But I do LOVE this score and the ability to add an ensemble without it seemingly being "oh, hey kids, you're not good enough so I'm sentencing you to a life in the shadows."
MTI Show Support: I need sets for Little Mermaid.
Feedback from our 2013 production... "Seaweed Chorus has been one of the most memorable roles (so far)!" We had a lot of fun placing them into the background of some scenes, including reading news papers and listening in (with shock and curiosity) as Flounder and the Mersisters rocked out to "She's in Love".
Use of lighting to show scene changes can be extremely powerful. We have a slide deck of our show in the "videos" section, feel free to poach any ideas as I'm sure we did from other internet content. We opted for "zones" with slightly different feels/looks, but with a common performance area in the center. The scene then depended (typically) on where the actors entered from.
Please post pics and share when you are done. Have a great show!

In the Classroom: New Works Showcase - JTF 2016
I think How to Succeed would be most fun in junior form. Pippin, Forum, and Spelling Bee (although this one is the most modern) would be great. Yes, I know Pippin has "sex presented pastorally," but they could alter that lyric, change the choreography in "With You" (I think it's that one at least), and just have Pippin and Catherine kiss when he helps her take care of her son. It's not impossible. There are others I'd like to see, but I guess they're not MTI titles.
