Pre-Show dialog - Shrek

Alas no. I haven't found the exact text. There are a couple of quotes, that would allow you to create something similar, but the original text still eludes capture.  I've been a bit busy building a puppetry for gingy and the dragon of late to spend too much time looking. She's coming together, but still lots of work to do.

MS Musical

Our kids loved doing Dear Edwina. Because it's a series of vignette's held together with minimal dialogue (think Godspell or Schoolhouse Rock) it was easy to rehearse. It was a lot of fun. You can do it with a small ensemble cast, or like we did using a chorus and involving almost 70 kids by assigning them to different songs.

do you handle throwing the cake on Sharpay in High School Musical JR.?.

We did this show at my school. I was Ryan and what we did was a fake cake on a platter flew on her, she fell, yelled "Someone's gonna pay for this" nd ran off while I was "Protecting/Shielding" her It gave a great comical effect but no mess. Break a leg! It is a fabulous show!!

Lion King Kids ensemble

Hi Cathy,

As Spencer mentioned using your kids on and around the stage and pit is a perfect solution for a small stage or not!  The design element is a MAJOR part of the KIDS and JR productions, so showcasing the costumed cast at different levels is a prioity. Use your basic elements of staging: levels, planes and proximity to support these characters importance in the story at the time. If scenery allows your design to sprawl into the auditorium, it helps create the world  of the Pridelands.

Jr. vs TYA Shows

HI David!  Great question - JR shows are 60-70 minutes in length, the showkit comes with a one year license and are performed by children through grade 9, (older grades with specific licensing agreement).  TYA, Theater for Young Audiences shows are performed by adults for children and family audiences.  They land under professional licensing agreements.

Lion King Jr.


The Lion King Jr and KIDS are only available for schools mainly. I would not anticipate the full show being available anytime soon. The process for a full length version normally begins with the show closing on Broadway for a period of time.
