Disney Bans School from producing Aladdin Musical

Meanwhile over in Australia a bunch of kids were steered wrong by their drama teachers who led them to think they could produce an unlicensed version of Aladdin. When Disney found out they forbid them from showing it in public as it would violate their current exclusive license with another theatre. They did let the kids do two performances for friends and family only. If my drama teacher played with my kids emotions like this I’d be one angry parent. Of course, that’s not exactly the story the media chose to run with. (Link)

    That’s too bad, but part of learning about theater is learning to deal with peformance rights and copyright.

    So how does that work with Aladdin Jr. Does a highschool have to write to Disney and ask if the company allows them to preform Aladdin Jr? What does Disney for them besides sending them a copy of the script.
