In 2010, Tams-Witmark CEO Sargent L. Aborn approached Timothy Allen McDonald to adapt The Wizard of Oz for young performers. This led to iTheatrics partnering with Rodgers & Hammerstein Theatricals and Samuel French to adapt over twenty musicals for young performers. In 2018, these musicals were united under the prestigious Concord Theatricals banner as Youth and Teen Edition musicals. Youth Edition musicals are geared to upper elementary and middle-school-age performers. Teen Edition musicals are best suited for high-school-age students. All Youth and Teen Edition musicals are licensed with resources developed by iTheatrics to ensure the process of putting on a show with young people is successful and rewarding.

iTheatrics is proud to have worked with the best and brightest in musical theatre licensing over the last 15 years. In 2010, we were thrilled to create The Wizard of Oz: Youth Edition for the Tams-Witmark Music Library, an over 90-year-old premier library of classic musical theater shows. In 2013, we relaunched the Rodgers & Hammerstein Youth Edition collection with  an adaptation of The Sound of Music for young people. Following many more adaptations for Tams-Witmark and Rodgers & Hammerstein, in 2016 we adapted Samuel French’s rock ‘n’ roll musical Rock of Ages for both middle school and high school performers. Today, all of these renowned musical theatre houses are included under the umbrella of Concord Theatricals, along with Andrew Lloyd Webber’s The Really Useful Group, for whom we were proud to adapt CATS: Young Actors Edition in 2021. iTheatrics has nearly 20 adaptations available for license with Concord Theatricals, with many more on the way!
