Broadway Junior Collection
In 1997, MTI’s Chairman and CEO, Freddie Gershon, recruited Timothy Allen McDonald to launch the Broadway Junior Collection at Music Theatre International. That year saw the launch of a single show, Annie JR. Now MTI’s Broadway Junior Collection® includes JR. shows (60 minutes) for middle school performers, KIDS shows (30 minutes) for elementary performers, School Edition shows for high school performers, and TYA shows for adults to perform for family audiences.
A ShowKit® for a Broadway Junior title includes

Student books (30): Student books include the script and the vocal score with an introduction to musical theater and a glossary of important theater terms and vocabulary.

Piano/Vocal Score (1): The Piano/Vocal Score consists of the vocal music and piano accompaniment for the show, and it serves as a helpful resource for the music director.

Director’s Guide (1): The Director’s Guide is a basic step-by-step manual for how to produce and direct a musical. It includes an annotated script featuring icon notes with quick tips, design resources (costumes, set, sound, lighting, and props), casting resources, rehearsal resources, curriculum and community connections, and corresponding digital resource materials.

Guide Vocal & Performance Accompaniment Tracks: The Guide Vocal Tracks feature young performers singing the music of the show. The Performance Accompaniment Tracks feature professional, live musicians performing the music of the show without the singing. The Accompaniment Tracks are to be used for performance.

Choreography Video (1): This resource demonstrates the show’s larger musical numbers fully choreographed and broken down into several segments, including step-by-step instructions and adjustments for performers. Should the choreography include any special steps, a segment is included that breaks down those steps for performers of all levels.

Downloadable Resources: These files contain essential templates and forms. In many cases, the documents can be edited to meet a director’s specific needs. Highlights include templates for creating a budget, program rehearsal calendar, and sides that can be printed and distributed at auditions.
