Our catalogue of major musicals continued to grow with the addition of several blockbusters in 2017.

The Young@Part® collection is comprised of 45 to 75 minute adaptations of popular musicals from the TRW catalogue designed to provide a rich dramatic and musical experience for elementary and middle-school aged kids. On the verge of launching two new Young@Part® titles, we sat down with Fred Stuart, Chief Creative Officer at TRW, to learn about the thoughtful development process that goes into each carefully crafted show.
TRW is thrilled to introduce our first two Broadway shows adapted for children, ALL SHOOK UP and SPAMALOT Young@Part® editions, are both available for licensing now. Each Young@Part® title comes complete with Performance Tracks, Guide Vocal Tracks, Director’s Guide, 30 Student Scripts and more, all for an affordable Performance License package. Materials are now available in Digital Delivery.
ALL SHOOK UP Young@Part® is the authorized 65-70 minute edition of the Broadway musical for elementary and middle schools, and youth theatres. Inspired by and featuring the songs of Elvis Presley, this new version of the show is perfect for kids to perform! Through a series of workshops with industry professionals and actual kids, the Young@Part® musicals are tailor-made for younger actors.
Selecting your next show or full season, is an exciting, inspiring time for your whole organization. Careful consideration of a title’s audience appeal, technical and design requirements, casting challenges and other concerns make choosing shows an art unto itself.
While the need to consistently achieve high ticket sales is a common theme, artistic directors and producers try to select titles that will connect with their communities as well.

In the educational and community theatre arena, the experience of the student or volunteer actors and techies is as important as the outcome of the show.
We’ve selected nine Broadway musicals, available for licensing for 2015-16, that can help inform your choice.
