    Hi all,
    We want to put on a mini version of the 'Greatest Showman' as our end of year production. I will write a new script and we were going to use karaoke backing tracks for 4/5 songs. Question is, does anyone know anything about licensing for this sort of thing?
    Normally we have bought into productions and just buy a license.

    Have you googled licence request for the greatest showman? You would probably need to apply to Fox music. However I don’t know that you will be successful. Even if they will permit a performance there are usually strict rules about paying for the script and not changing it, or words of songs, and the cost is likely to be £££. I would like to think I am completely wrong...

    I've had an almighty google search and can't find anything! From what I have found loads and loads of schools have put on their own versions.

    I doubt very much that you will be able to do what you are hoping to do. @jubilada is right that there are usually strict rules governing what a licence will permit you to do - especially to a high-profile West End show. And true, the costs are likely to be high.

    I suggest you think again...
