2. What the hell is the point of BATB Jr.? Isn't it already a Disney show? How much more family-friendly can you make it? MTI rated it G. I don't understand the point of this. asdfghjkl.

As much as I hate junior shows, I'm thankful for them. My school has a small auditorium/gym/cafeteria so we don't have enough room for an orchestra. On top of that, the school band isn't the greatest. We also have a tight budget, so if it weren't for these shows we wouldn't be able to put on musicals.

Because the Jr shows make it easier for children to perform, not understand/take in. BATB is a full-length musical with complicated harmonies. Beauty Jr is 60-80 minutes, with easier songs and dialogue, making it easier for schools and youth groups.

And, if I can remember correctly, they're less expensive therefore giving schools and youth groups the ability to introduce children to theatre without breaking their budget.

Well I might be auditioning for this sometime soon in the coming year. I'd love to be The Beast or even Gaston or Lefou but I think the company's opening it up to 9th-12th graders. MTI prohibits that in the licensing though, right?

It's fine, as long as they are under the age of 18. The exeption is for School House Rock Live! Jr., where the teacher may be played by an adult, upon request.

Yeah I'm in middle school and we were gonna do the jr version but MTI sent us both so we did the regular one (cutting the song Me because our Gaston sucked) But holy god could our beast handle the song iIf I Can't Love Her and he's only 12 and in 7th grade!! And I ewas able to do A Change in Me as a 13 year old and 8th grader with no problem! Those songs should not have been cut. Middle school kids are very capable and underestimated! Hehe.

They sent both to you? That doesn't sound right.

That's what my director said.

Oh God.
That was my second middle school musical (first as a student) and it was just...blah. Terrible experience. It was the last "real" musical my middle school has done though and that was over three years ago...not a fun experience at ALL. I was an ensemble member, and since I was still a boy soprano, I was forced to sing the girl part. :roll:
