Samuel French is home to many of the world's best musicals. Our musicals cover a broad range of styles and genres, and many of these musicals are perfect for High Schools and Middle Schools. To that end, we've partnered with iTheatrics, the industry leading company for adapting musicals for the educational market. This relationship will allow us to adapt many of Samuel French's popular musicals so that they are appropriate for schools. We are calling these new, school-ready musicals 101 SCHOOL EDITIONS. Created with and by educators, these versions have been adjusted for appropriate content at the school level. They have been custom-tailored to work with young voices and can accommodate large cast sizes. Each 101 School Edition also comes with a Director's Guide and helpful tools for presenting a musical.
