Amateur Stage Expo – Update
Amateur Stage Expo is delighted to welcome Theatrical Rights from New York as our first international exhibitor.
Theatrical Rights Worldwide (TRW) represents musicals from Broadway, Off-Broadway and Regional Theatres. Titles include MONTY PYTHON’S SPAMALOT, CURTAINS, GREASE, THE ADDAMS FAMILY, MEMPHIS, and ALL SHOOK UP.
“All performance materials, brand new each time, are yours to keep. There are no deposit fees with TRW. We license productions to a broad range of customers, including primary and secondary schools; colleges and universities, community, civic and religious organisations; summer stock and dinner theatres; regional and residential theatres and opera companies; youth theatres, cruise ships, casinos, hotels, and producers of touring productions. In short, our customers include anyone who wants to experience and share the joy of live musical theatre.”
Representatives of Theatrical Rights will be attending Expo to meet attendees and talk to you about their latest offerings. You can also get a complimentary CD and a copy of their catalogue by visiting their stand on the day of the Expo. They will have production photos and samples of the material they offer on hand for perusal.
Jim Hoare, Director of Licensing at Theatrical Rights said “Theatrical Rights Worldwide is thrilled that we will be attending the inaugural Amateur Stage Expo. We are looking forward to meeting groups that have produced our musicals, as well as having an opportunity to meet many new UK based groups to introduce them to our catalogue.”
