Song/Music Guidelines

  • 5 songs (3-4 minutes each) maximum
    • Please consider that performers will be trying to learn and memorize your script within 24 hours
  • At least 1 ensemble musical number involving the full 6-12 person cast
    • Opening and closing numbers are great opportunities for the full cast to sing together
  • Provide links to karaoke/instrumental versions of songs in your script submission
    • We have no live musicians – performers will be accompanied by karaoke/instrumental tracks from Youtube.
    • If a karaoke/instrumental version of the song does not exist, we are unable to make a track and therefore cannot use the song
