Licensing

Licensing

Please let us know in advance if you intend to use a commercial company to record any performance, including rehearsals, as that will require a separate licence between us – dc musicals – and the company involved.
Non-commercial sound and video recordings are chargeable at £1.00 per copy; a licence for such recordings can be applied for pre or post performance.
Public performance of songs without the script is permitted if you hold a valid PRS licence.
Filming/Streaming Licence: If you plan to film your performance and manufacture DVDs for distribution, stream content on an internet site or on social media, you will also need to purchase this licence.
A Performance License is required to perform this musical to an audience (other than to pupils & staff).

  • You can purchase a Performance License above (it is cheaper when purchased as part of a product pack).
  • The requirement for a license is irrespective of whether admission charges are made.
  • A Performance License covers any number of performances of a particular musical or nativity within 12 months of the date of ordering.
  • A new Performance License would be required for any future performance(s) outside the date period printed on your current license

In addition, with so many of our musicals and nativities purchased in digital format, you need a legal way to install or distribute copies for use around the school. Your Performance License will grant you permission to:

  1. Perform the work to an audience (other than pupils and staff in schools). A license is required even if it is a 'free' performance and this is a worldwide copyright requirement.
  2. Copy song files from an Audio CD onto more than one computer.
  3. Copy MP3 audio files onto more than one computer.
  4. Create a recording of the song/s with children singing over the top, whether with our backing track, our vocal track or your own backing track.
  5. Upload and share digital content to your school's intranet, restricted internet or learning platform.
  6. Share on public websites including the school’s website, YouTube, Facebook, Vimeo, Soundcloud, etc.
  7. Permit usage of digital content at home for teachers for preparation purposes.

A separate Performance License is required for each product title that you use in any of these ways.
