MTI Show Support: Hairspray jr casting?

Hi Cindy,

I am very interested in directing 'Hairspray Jr.' at a middle school this year. However, I will not know until after I choose the show how many African American students will be auditioning. This will be my 5th year directing at the school, and I have never had more than 3-5 African American students in a given year. Any suggestions/assistance would be greatly appreciated!

 

Thank you,

Josh

Backstage: Flying without wires in Disneys Peter Pan, Jr?

Hi!

I just directed this play last school year. I recorded my kids in front of a green screen. Fortunately, I had some students who were able to edit the movie and set it in front of an appropriate background. At the moment in the script where the kids were flying, we lowered our screen and projected the flying scene with the other students singing and dancing around the screen on the stage. It worked out perfectly! We had students singing in the aisles as well. It really made the audience feel like they were incorporated in that scene. It was a big success.

The MTI Show Collection: High School Musical (Jr)

High School Musical Jr. is as popular as ever.  It's a show lots of schools can do with minimal cost and great for new starting programs as well as younger programs.  It can also still draw a crowd as well!

MTI Show Support: Into the Woods - Giant video or effect?

Looking to gain some thoughts on how the giant in Into the Woods can be achieved. Does anyone have a video of a shadow that they've used? What else has been used to create the giant?

MTI Show Support: Peter Pan

Hi Joyce!

There are logos for you to use in a variety of ways.  Easiest are the ones on your Resource disc in the back of your Showkit Director's Guide.  These include postersamples, poster template, press release template and program template all including logo.  If you need color, you can purchase a LOGO PACK for a licensing fee of $50 through your MTI rep or myMTI account. Each logo pack includes logos in color and black & white with multiple digital format files (TIFF and EPS format) ready to go. Break a leg on Peter Pan JR!
