Pioneer Drama Service offers CD Samplers for our musicals.
Had a great time yesterday making a CD Sampler for Princess Whatsername. The sampler has a narrated plot along with clips of every single song in the show to help teachers and directors choose the perfect musical for their group. And believe me, you'll love Princess Whatsername is you're seeking a large-cast, fun and fresh children's musical.
With script in one hand and a copy of the vocal rehearsal CD in another, I walked into Studio B. I have been working with Doug Brand, a sound engineer, for over twenty-five years. (We now publish over 200 musicals!) When I walked into the studio, I immediately laid down my voice track. This recording (which used to go on a reel-to-reel tape) was put directly on a sound program that is specifically used for mixing music. From there, we took sound bites from each of the songs and wove narration and music together to present the storyline of the show. This, of course, shows everyone why Pioneer’s original musicals are just right for the amateur and professional stage.
Want a great musical? Princess Whatsername is now available!

I had the pleasure of going with Bill Francoeur to watch a reading of TOTALLY AWESOME 80s. Awesome show! Awesome reading! Awesome 80s! During the reading, parts of the music was played to get the feel of the show. Kids loved it. So, if anyone wants to experience the era, this is the show for you.

Youth theatre taming the 'Wild West' at the Rose
Thanks to Rose Theatre in Bastrop, LA for putting on WILD, WILD WILDEST WEST IN A DRESS by Billy St. John. The Rose is filled with antiques and artwork typical of her heyday in the 1920's. The stage has been expanded, new carpet installed, and many modern comforts added for her guests. The building was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1987 --- a fitting tribute to the Rose and the community spirit that has made her a landmark in every way for Northeast Louisiana.
