Hi there peeps!

Quick query, I am doing the same sort of thing, for our schools annual musical, but I was wondering, after the rights have been issued, is there a fee for the sheet music, or anything else essential?

Ta muchly, and good look,

All fees and suchlike will be discussed during the licensing process. As far as I know, there is a fee for Score rental, plus a percentage of your total takings for the show to cover rights.

When I licensed the rights and rented the score I think my total out of pocket expense was somewhere around $600 USD. Because I didn't charge admission to the performance I paid the equivalent of 15% of a sold out house, which in-fact, we had!

Our fighting machines were made of styrofoam with steel angle bracket spines attached to wood blocks which held 3 legs. One leg was a wooden dowel meant to hold the puppet aloft, while the front two legs were PVC with joints meant to articulate and make the puppet appear to walk.

I have some video, perhaps I can post it.

The project was a huge success, we sold out in the first 10 minutes and were shoehorning people in. I was told by one of my mentors that it was the best senior project he had ever seen performed at the University.

600 usd!? (In English sterling) We may not have that kind of money to spare!

(Good idea, bad idea, I don't know anymore!)

That'll solve any problem of copyright then! get on with it, start rehearsals etc., then discuss the matter of money, if the rest of your team are as enthusiastic as yourself it should work - good luck, but persevere.
