Music Theatre International (MTI) is one of the world's leading theatrical licensing agencies, granting theatres from around the world the rights to perform the greatest selection of musicals from Broadway and beyond. MTI works directly with the composers, lyricists and book writers of these musicals to provide official scripts, musical materials and dynamic theatrical resources to over 70,000 professional, community and school theatres in the US and in over 60 countries worldwide. KidsAlive! has a special connection to MTI through their commitment to theatre education. It was MTI that first created the Broadway Junior collection which led to the Junior Theater Festival (JTF), a cornerstone program for KA! each year. At JTF 2017 Shawna Linck, and at JTF 2020 Chad Haney, was named a Freddie G Fellow. This fellowship is named after, and funded by, MTI Co-Chairman Freddie Gershon and his wife, Myrna and recognizes outstand theatre educators from around the world. Because of the MTI commitment to theatre excellence, and Freddie's personal investment in our program, we are thrilled to be a part of this global theatre CELEBRATION!
What is All Together Now?
All Together Now is a brand new musical revue MTI has created for school and community theatres to produce as a fundraiser as we all continue to recover from revenue losses caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.
The revue will feature 15 musical numbers ranging from solo performances to full ensemble showstoppers! MTI has given each theatre a list of songs to choose from with the chance for us to select numbers that will best highlight our cast.
All Together Now will be a Community Connections KA! production. Community Connections shows include adult performers from our community. These performers not only lend their talents to our shows but they serve as mentors to our student performers. It's an educational experience that benefits all involved!
All performances will take place the weekend of November 12-15
Exact time and location TBD
Regular rehearsals will take place Tuesdays and Thursdays beginning September 7th.
We will not call every person to every rehearsal
We hope our students will participate in both All Together Now and Moana, Jr so we are offering a discounted tuition for students that participate in both show.
Tuition for Both - $500
All Together Now only - $300
Moana, Jr only - $375
We acknowledge that the above description may not paint a full picture of what this will be. Well... we're still figuring it out! MTI will be sending detailed materials soon which will allow us to finalize our planning. What we can promise is that this provides a unique opportunity to perform some of broadways most beloved songs with some of KA! most beloved performers.
