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: The Golden Touch
Adapted as a 40 minute, small cast play for younger students by award-winning children’?s writer Cynthia Medley-England, The Golden Touch is the well-loved story of King Midas, who ruled over the ancient country of Phrygia. He loved his daughter and his garden but most of all, he loved gold. When a stranger suddenly appears in his palace and grants him one wish, King Midas wishes, ‘that everything I touch turns into gold!’
His wish is granted. But the King quickly finds that even his food and drink are turned to gold! When he hugs his beloved daughter, who immediately turns into a golden statue, he is distraught with grief, and regrets his golden touch, begging the stranger to return his food, his flowers, and most of all, his daughter. He loses his golden touch, but regains so much more and finds out just what he really values.
