    Staging Musical

    I wonder if you can help. I am the ICT Technician in a SEN school in Devon. I am working on some drama with our FE students, who would very much like to put on a short version of Aladdin for the younger students. I have done some digging around, first on the Disney website, then on MFI, and then finally on the UK Josef Weinberger site, and it looks like permission for us to do a small show under the banner of “Aladdin Jr” would cost us £420. This is quite a bit beyond our means! We have a PRS licence that allows us to play music in school...I've emailed Josef Weinberger to plead for a discount, but can anyone with experience in this sort of thing give me any ideas that would enable to put this show on? I'm looking for loopholes, calling the show "Aladding", that sort of thing! :-)

    Big name musicals cost stupid amounts of money, the rights for Grease last time I looked for it were stupid costs and makes them well out of the budget of a lot of small schools

    I live in the Blue Room... If Weinbergers own the rights, don't even THINK about trying anything "trick", they can be very very quick to reach for their lawyers. (Think "Having to have the font on your posters in the correct proportion size-wise")

    I'd advocate using a traditional Aladdin script, and then using songs from elsewhere with more reasonable rights-holders. It won't be free though!

    So all we have to do is write a hit musical, priced at a level schools can afford, and we'll be earning royalties for years to come...

    But not that many royalties.

    Time for an ICT themed musical

    At end end of the day you must install updates
    And that's all you can say for the life of the poor...ICT technician
    It's a struggle, it's a war
    And there's malware that everyone's getting
    One more day installing updates, what is it for?
    One day less for supporting
