A school pays to get the rights to do a musical.
This musical will be performed by students in grades 5-8.
The director of the musical makes changes to the script/score.
A ‘disgruntled former employee’ of the school has a grievance against said director.
Disgruntled former employee blows the whistle on the director and informs the rights holder that changes were made to the script/score.
The rights holder begins an investigation into the allegations (which will take 2-3 weeks).
Due to the timing of everything, the school has no choice but to cancel the spring musical.
Yes, it’s totally illegal to change the script/score that you’re renting….but theatres do it ALL THE TIME…..I know, I know it doesn’t make it right.
However, I think the ‘disgruntled former employee’ is a total douche for doing that.
Grow up and fight your own battles, without getting a bunch of 10 – 14 year olds involved.
