Book by Terrence McNally. Music by Stephen Flaherty. Lyrics by Lynn Ahrens.
Full Length Musical, Dramatic Comedy, 1920s

Licensing for Anastasia: The Musical is currently available to K-12 educational schools only.
The spectacular new musical about discovering who you are and defining who you're meant to be. This dazzling show transports its audience from the twilight of the Russian Empire to the euphoria of Paris in the 1920s, as a brave young woman sets out to discover the mystery of her past. Pursued by a ruthless Soviet officer determined to silence her, Anya enlists the aid of a dashing con man and a lovable ex-aristocrat. Together, they embark on an epic adventure to help her find home, love and family.

The Addams Family: School Edition
Book by Marshall Brickman and Rick Elice. Music and Lyrics by Andrew Lippa.
Full Length Musical, Comedy, Present Day
CAST: 11M, 9F
The Addams Family features an original story, and it's every father's nightmare. Wednesday Addams, the ultimate princess of darkness, has grown up and fallen in love with a sweet, smart young man from a respectable family -- a man her parents have never met. And if that weren't upsetting enough, Wednesday confides in her fathers and begs him not to tell her mother. Now, Gomez Addams must do something he's never done before -- keep a secret from his beloved wife, Morticia. Everything will change for the whole family on the fateful night they host a dinner for Wednesday's 'normal' boyfriend and his parents.

The SpongeBob Musical
Kyle Jarrow, Tina Landau
Full Length Musical, Comedy, Contemporary
CAST: 16M or F
Adapted from the iconic Nickelodeon series! SpongeBob and all of Bikini Bottom face the total annihilation of their undersea world. Chaos erupts. Lives hang in the balance. And just when all hope seems lost, a most unexpected hero rises up and takes center stage. The power of optimism really can save the world!

Grease - School Edition
Book, Music and Lyrics by Jim Jacobs Book, Music and Lyrics by Warren Casey
Full Length Musical, Drama, Comedy, 1950s
CAST: 9M, 8F
Here is Rydell High's senior class of 1959: duck-tailed, hot-rodding "Burger Palace Boys" and their gum-snapping, hip-shaking "Pink Ladies" in bobby sox and pedal pushers, evoking the look and sound of the 1950's in this rollicking musical.

You're A Good Man, Charlie Brown
Based on the Comic Strip "Peanuts" by Charles M. Schulz. Book, Music and Lyrics by Clark Gesner.
Full Length Musical, Comedy, Contemporary
CAST: 4M, 2F
YOU'RE A GOOD MAN, CHARLIE BROWN is the ideal first show for those who would like to do a musical. The cast is small and the routines are simple. There are many short scenes in this staging of a day in the life of Charlie Brown. Fun, laughter and sincerity build the mood.
Musical numbers include My Blanket and Me, The Kite, The Baseball Game, Little Known Facts, Suppertime and Happiness. Join the Peanuts gang in this fast paced, lighthearted musical, guaranteed to please audiences of all ages!
 
Disenchanted! (High School Edition)
Book, Music & Lyrics by Dennis T. Giacino
Full Length Musical, Backing Tracks, Comedy, Contemporary
CAST: 10F
Poisoned apples. Glass slippers. Who needs 'em?! Not Snow White and her posse of disenchanted princesses in the hilarious hit musical that's anything but Grimm. The original storybook heroines are none-too-happy with the way they've been portrayed in today's pop culture so they've tossed their tiaras and have come to life to set the record straight. Forget the princesses you think you know -- these royal renegades are here to comically belt out the truth.
