Hey Guys!

My local organization is looking for a second musical that could be licensed for 8 shows for 3,000 or less. We are also looking for some great summer black box shows as well. I've found a few shows through MTI that would fall under that budget but I'd love more ideas. Thanks!

How big is your stage? What is your talent pool like?

It's a victorian theater (with usable balcony spaces) and is not suped big. We were crowded having a 40 person cast for Christmas Carol.

Talent pool wise... it's been varying. We have alot of kids and teens. A good crop of younger adults who haven't had oppertunities and a regular group of adults in their 40s+

Birdie is a great show when you have both kids and adults - but I don't know if it will fall under 3K.   I can't remember the last time I've had rights and royalties for under 3. 

If we're not having fun, then why are we doing it? These are DISCUSSION boards, not mutual admiration boards. Discussion only occurs when we are willing to hear what others are thinking, regardless of whether it is alignment to our own thoughts.

I think Urinetown might just make the cut price wize.  14 roles plus ensemble

Duh, how could I forget?   I just directed/produced it in the fall,to the tune of just over 3K.  (Maybe because I paid for it back in MAY.)
