|Production Fees (Global)||
AUD$40 per performance
Writer Mark Langham tells us the reason why he wrote Circus in this article –
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.)

Old performers, they say, never retire. The phone just stops ringing…
Geoffrey is the newest recruit to the Lion Tamers, Magician’s Assistants and Human Cannonball Lighters Retirement Village – the LTMAHCLRV, for short. As one half of “Geoffrey and Eustace, Lion Tamers Extraordinaire”, he has earned his rest. No sign of Eustace anywhere though…
He joins Hortensia and Estella; both assistants to magicians, both with a tale to tell – try stopping ‘em – and with an abiding hatred of each other. And Lionel. No one quite knows what to make of Lionel. And his little friend. Thrown together with nothing more than a lifetime of showbiz to bind them, they soon find that they have more in common than, perhaps, they imagined. And Lionel. What’s his role here? He’s cleaned up after elephants, tried, in vain, to keep clowns off the sauce but this may be his moment to shine – finally.
Circus is a dark comedy: full of showbiz nuggets and a gift for mature actors and lepidopterologists everywhere.
