The Man has been put in his box – literally. The Woman locked him there during the last festive season. She promised to review the situation in a year’s time. Now it’s Boxing Day, 12 months on. With the harsh Australian sun beating down, and temperatures at boiling point, what will happen next?
There’s great flexibility in casting – the characters could really be any age. Boxing Day is also a great property for touring; one could fit the director, cast, set and properties all in the same car.
There are fascinating choices to be made within your production – play up the many laughs, or focus more on the darker elements? Adopt a naturalistic acting style or, given the scenario, a more stylised presentation? The conflict and respective status of each character is clear, and there?s a fantastic surprise ending that’ll have everyone talking. Boxing Day – the sort of theatrical gift all companies dream about finding under their Christmas tree.
The purchase of a single script infers no Copying or Performance rights. (Scripts and music can’t be copied for readings, auditions or rehearsals without purchasing the Copying Fee.) The fee gives you the right to copy the script and musical scores that you have purchased as many times as you need for these performances.
To stage a performance, you must announce your performance dates to Maverick Musicals and state whether you are or are not charging for tickets. This will dictate what kind of royalty fee you will be invoiced for.
Copying Fees (for rehearsal materials) and a Performance License must be obtained before your production can take place. Our streamlined system means that a Performance License Application is activated when you order the Basic or Deluxe Package. (Please note that it is a breach of Copyright to copy scripts and music, or to perform musicals or plays without the Publisher’s permission.)
