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!

 My email address is

Thank you,

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?

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!

Lion King Jr.

A good question that many are curious about for sure David.  There are no plans for a full show, right now schools are the only lucky ones.

Who is in which scene?

Hi, I am preparing to direct Dr.Dolittle Jr. and I am just curious if anyone has insight to if it is intended that some of the core animals (Polynesia, Jip, Chee Cheeā€¦) are in the circus & court room scenes? Also curious if the Circus Folk are in Court Room or not, Mr. Blossom is referred to but it could also be just written in the note that Bellows reads. Thanks for any guidance.

Seeking Musical Suggestions

HI Lisa! Have you considered "Aida" or "Les Mis" that are part of our school edition series?  Both aren't brand new, but never seem to lose their popularitywith audiences. Little Shop again is anything but new, yet still timeless.  All of these have ample opportunity for ensemble parts.

What show should we do?

HI Geoff! Congrats on your Beauty and the Beast JR with casts of thousands!  I love the inclusion, and quite honestly did many of the original pilots with casts of 160. If you are set on a Disney show, one of the most successful ones to expand is JUngle Book Kids.  It only lasts 40 minutes but is easily cast with large groups that are not gender specific.  If you need a longer show, look at Aladdin. Townspeople, shop owners, harem girls, guards and narrators etc. are featured in all of the production numbers. You might also take a look at Music Man JR and Guys and Dolls from our legacy series.  Classic shows with wonderful parts to share with a large cast. Lets get you perusals to see what you think!

The Lorax

Ok, thank you for the information. This show was the deleted song from the second act of Seussical, am I correct?

rehearsal length

Hi Nick!  The standard formula for JR rehearsal calendar (Beauty and the Beast JR included), is hour rehearsal for each minute of performance,  The length of the JR shows is between 60 and 70 minutes, therefore 60-70 hours  The calendars are based on that formula. How you use your rehearsal time (leads in one space, group work in another simultaneously, etc.), can cut down that time of course.  Ages of students, adult help and available space all affect rehearsal time, but the formula is very true! Break a Leg!
