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.
Miscellany: Getting approval to do Ragtime, School Edition
Rhonda have you considered talking to your social studies department? Ragtime is such a hughly important piece of musical theatre. To be addressing those issues was the musical theatre's form of social protest and was on the forefront of civil rights in many ways. You could also offer to put a disclaimer in the programs and press that it is for mature audiences. There could be a lot more to discuss but if you work in tandem with the the administration, some community leaders (mayor, council, religious, business, etc.) it would be a major benefit to you and gain the trust and support of all involved parties.
MTI Show Support: Tyrone in FameDoes Tyrone need to be played by a black person? I didn't get that impression when looking at the character breakdown but then watched a youtube show of it and there are references in the script and his rap about being black. We don't have any black males in our cast so it is essential information before I choose our show! Thanks!
