Why do I need to apply for a licence to perform one of your shows? 

All performances of stage musicals that are protected by copyright need to be approved and licensed by the holder of the copyright. All of our shows are copyright works and therefore any proposed production requires our prior approval and licence.

It is therefore extremely important that you do not make any plans or preparations for a production until you have checked with the Music Licensing Department or one of our agents and have secured a performance licence!
