Staging Musicals for Young Performers

A simple, step-by-step guide   *****

Staging Musicals for Young Performers

This book is a useful guide for anyone who finds themselves with the job of producing or directing a children's musical for performance at school or in a youth theatre.

It is clearly and simply written, and provides a step-by-step guide that covers all the essentials.

It leads you through the stages of producing a successful show, from choosing a suitable script for your group, casting your principals, organising a rehearsal programme, to the technicalities of make-up, scenery and props, and sound and lighting.

There is also a helpful chapter on working out a budget for your show, that should help you come in on the right side of the profit and loss line.

Newly appointed directors

We particularly liked this advice to the newly appointed or inexperienced director:

"Don't be discouraged by how many elements need to be considered. Just take it a step at a time, and concentrate on the kids having a good time at each session you run."

The book shows you how to stage almost any kind of musical show for children on any budget, whether you are operating on a shoestring or producing a sponsored extravaganza.

Overall, we think it's a well written, practical and realistic guide that will be useful for all those taking on the job of producing their school's musical - for the first, second or even third time!

Limelight Musicals say: Highly recommended
