A fourth-generation grain and beef producer, Cyril Evans promised his father he would never sell the family property Evanswood. But life didn’t quite go as planned for the likeable Cyril. Due to a sad misunderstanding 33 years ago, his marriage to the lovely Delmay Maydel was called off the night before the wedding.
In quick time, a bevy of people appear on his doorstep. They include the beautiful young Skye Weston, who has been driving and fixing headers since she was 12; Cyril’s jilted fiancée from 33 years ago, Delmay June Maydel; Cyril’s neighbour Gus Bell, who has his own secret agenda; a sexy mystery woman Roxanne; Roxfox; Foxton; and a well-mannered young grazier Doug Dinnington.
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.)
