Freaky Friday 1 Act Version

Can you tell me the cast breakdown for the 1 act version of Freaky Friday?  The website says 10 + ensemble, but the breakdown gives several characters that I am assuming are in the full length.  I need a male/female breakdown for the 1 act.

Come From Away

We are trying to pick a show for Spring 2023 and were interested in doing Come From Away. I know we don't have a release date but would there be a chance it will be ready by then?

rhythms in score vs. recording--Lion KIng Jr.

Dear MTI People,

The recording provided for Disney's The Lion King Jr. is very polished, with the rhythms being very deliberate, and the intonation of the singers is excellent. I noticed, however, that their recording of "Grasslands Chant", which is a cool little piece, has the singers performing the rhythms of that song very differently from what is on the written score. It seems like they have really worked hard to perfect those difficult rhythms on the recording. But they sure ain't doing them the way they were written. My guess is that it was too hard to notate the rhythms that they want kids to sing...or I should say, the notation would have been intimidating for both music directors and singers. So I'm also guessing that we should perform the piece the way it was recorded vs. the way it is written. What do you all think? Thanks, David

We have lots of kids who want to be in the show. Is there a limit to how many orphans? Obviously, they can't have names or lines but can they sing and dance in an ensemble.

Can you get an orchestra score for Elf, Jr.?

We would prefer to use a live orchestra instead of "canned" or recorded orchestra. Is it possible to get an orchestra score for Elf, Jr.?
