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.)
Sample: Happy Birthday Mum
A one act, award winning play. Jan, in Australia, rings her mother (Sylvia) in England, to wish her “Happy Birthday”. As they speak, Sylvia hears the sound of breaking glass and just has time to tell Jan that someone is in the house; the phone goes dead … leaving Jan panicking on the other end of the phone. What can she do? What is happening to her mother? A tense, riveting play, offering powerful roles for four characters.
