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: Tom and Huckleberry
Tom and Huckleberry is an ideal musical for schools and amateur companies as there are plenty of ensemble songs and no fewer than 23 individual speaking parts. This adaptation was written in 1981 and has enjoyed considerable success ever since.
The time is approximately 1850; the setting: St Petersburg, a small town basking upon the banks of the great Mississippi River. Tom lives with his Aunt Polly and his brother, Sid, in a small house overlooking the side-walk. It is summer, and Tom’s main preoccupation is playing truant from school, so he joins the homeless outcast, Huck Finn, along the banks of The Mississippi in search of adventure. It is on just such a quest that, one night in the graveyard, the two bays unwittingly witness a horrific murder that is to change their lives for ever.
