Performance Package, Sample
Hugh shares the fascinating story behind his creation of The Pram in his blog here >
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 Pram
Can a determined woman and a DNA test solve the 100-year-old mystery of a missing baby?
The Pram is the ideal play for busy people to put on at a festival or as part of a one act season. It is divided into three time periods with only two people ever on stage at once, allowing each pairing to rehearse their scenes separately if time is scarce.
The play is a modern mystery interwoven with events from the past such as Gallipoli, the great Spanish flu epidemic of 1919 and the Vietnam War.
It taps into today’s strong interest in DNA testing to determine family ancestry. The play has an ultra-simple set and takes place in any small town in Australia. Place names can be localised to make the setting close to home for your audience.
