We’re asking our family of customers to join us in this brilliant project…and it won’t cost you a penny. (Just a little love!)
The TRW Partnership Team is Theatrical Rights Worldwide’s community outreach organization. Created in 2009, the Partnership Team’s mission calls for planting seeds in schools and theatre companies to grow the next generation of actors, artists, writers and audience members.
Earlier this year we learned of a very special production at MTVArts, in Mount Vernon, Ohio of one of our most popular Theatre for Young Audiences titles, HOW I BECAME A PIRATE. When we met their 11 year-old director, we immediately knew we had to be a part of this magical event.
Watch the official JJ Project video and get to know this young man and help us in making JJ’s directorial debut a very memorable opening!
The Theatrical Rights Worldwide Partnership Team was created in 2008 to provide human resources to schools in our community, New York City, that need a helping hand creating theatre programs, or enhancing existing departments. Our experiences in the NYC schools have brought us far more insight than we ever imagined. Seeing the faces of kids lighting up a stage for the first time as they discover the joy of artistic collaboration is exhilarating!
In October 2009 the Partnership Team began our work with over sixty first and second graders from the Family School, in the Bronx at P.S. 90, coordinated through Music Specialist Justin Dayhoff and Principal Pamela Lee. November saw the class take the stage for the first time to the delight of the hundreds of family and friends who filled the school’s lovely old auditorium.

And, TRW continued to lead the industry with innovative, customer service-oriented practices that have revolutionized the Musical Theatre Licensing business. Here’s a look back at some of the top stories from the TRW Newsletter and Blog archives.

In October 2009 the Partnership Team began our work with over sixty first and second graders from the Family School, coordinated through Music Specialist Justin Dayhoff and Principal Pamela Lee. November brought a follow-up assessment meeting between the Theatrical Rights team and Dayhoff and Lee that resulted in an agreement to continue the drama/music program in a new session that began in January, 2010. The program features an extended schedule, including an early morning before-school component.
The TRW Partnership Team just spent three amazing weeks with The Family School, Bronx, NY, working with their Kindergarten through 2nd graders on their first drama project! Team leaders Fred Stuart and Andrew Rainbow from the TRW Partnership Team worked with over 60 students, aided by Justin Dayhoff, the Family School’s music specialist and Family School staff.
Each class focused on the basic skills of drama and…on having fun! Breaking the group into four casts, the second week saw the development of a short play for each group. By week three, each group was in the final stages of remembering their lines and learning the awesome song composed by TRW’s Andrew Rainbow.
Finally on Thursday, October 22, 2009, The first Family School Drama Program show premiered!
