Reviews - What do customers think about Staging Musicals for Young Performers: How to Produce a Show in 36 Sessions or Less?

Excellent!  Oct 4, 2008
I'm getting ready to direct a community theater production of "Oliver" and the thought of working with a bazillion kids made me reach for the smelling salts. I ordered this book among many others, in the hopes of picking up some techniques for handling a large young cast (which I sense is going to be a lot like herding cats). This book is exactly what I wanted, and more. There are some terrific tips for running rehearsals, making sure every child has an opportunity to shine, and involving parents. Though the timelines are based on once-a-week rehearsals, they are easily adapted to more frequent practices. The best part is the "you can do it" tone, and since I've finished reading it, I can't wait to get started on the show! I'm certain this book will be my "go to" source for ideas.
 
Fantastic book A*****  Dec 20, 2004
Wow! This book changed my life. Having dabbled in fly-fishing on a quiet weekend for many a year, I decided to change vocation, and became involved in staging a production of "Quincey: The Musical" with a bunch of effervescent, party-loving 12 year olds. I would have been truly stumped without this book. As a result of reading this informative and imaginative piece of literature (due credit to Ms Novelly and Ms Firth - I feel that national and international literary awards could be "forthcoming"!) I was able to approach the subject with an air of assurance and self-confidence that I could not otherwise have hoped to aspire to! Indeed our initial production was such a success, that our small theatrical group is now working on a new project, "Murder She Wrote: on Ice" with renewed enthusiasm and vigour. Needless to say we will once again be adhering strictly to the advice offered by this most delightful journal.
