Introduction

Allow me to introduce myself. My name is James, a theater and music student. I have been in musical theater for the past six years or so. I have been in shows from Grease all the way to Willy Wonka. For the past month or so I have been starting a new project, not your usual project though...

 

A full length original two-act musical based off My Little Pony.

 

Now I know what you’re thinking. This sounds crazy! But! It is possible. Over the course of the next year or so I will be working with a few other people on an original musical based off the cartoon.

 

The Project

The musical will have a brand new storyline as well brand new songs. You may hear some familiar ones, but most songs will be original. By the end of this project we should have either an audio only, or an animated feature film showcasing the musical.

 

Synopsis

The synopsis will be released on a later date.

 

All I will say is that, it will be a Spike centered musical.

 

How Can You Help?

I am going to need help on this project, since writing and arranging a whole musical is not easy. I need people to help me arrange the sheet music. We have limited access to the show's sheet music, so we're going to need to write up some original music.

 

You need to meet the following requirements in order to help with music:

- Be at least 15 years of age

- Speak and write in fluent English

- Have some type of composing software (They cannot be Musescore, Noteflight, Finale Notepad, or any type of free MIDI writing program.) The full Finale version is allowed. That is what I use. I also recommend Sibelius.

- Play at least one instrument

- Be in any type of band at the current moment (Rock bands, marching bands, concert bands, acapella bands, etc.)

- Can fully understand music

 

I also need help with some of the writing. I'm taking a lot of the show's script but that won't be enough. We need to come up with a subplot as well as write brand new scenes.

 

You need to meet the following requirements in order to help with writing:

- Be at least 15 years of age

- Speak and write in fluent English

- Have taken and passed English II in high school

- Understand how to write a script

- Have been in at least two plays or musicals in their lifetime

 

If you're interested in helping then use one of the contact features below. Once I add you I will ask you some questions as well as ask for some examples of your previous works. If I find you qualified you’ll be in the running. I am looking for one composer and one lyricist. Or one person to write music and lyrics, since I am writing the script (or book).

 

Thank you guys for checking this out, I hope to hear back from you guys! This project is going to be great!

F.A.Qs

Can I be in the cast? I can sing! I will hold auditions for all roles once we are about done with the show.

 

This is obviously not going on Broadway, so why are you doing this? Once done with the show we will have a digital, sounds only show available for download. This show won't go to waste!

 

When will you be done? We won't know the official release date until we have our cast. One song may be easy to transpose while other songs can be extremely hard. You never know.

 

Is this "My Little Musical?" No we are not. They are a different group of talented people who are putting on a whole different musical with original songs. Go check them out here! http://mylittlemusical.tumblr.com/

This is a marketing ploy or something right?

Signs a agreement that he owns you and all records of you so that everytime you make any sort of money even as a birthday present, you have to pay him 10%

Haha! No, this will all nonprofit. The show will most likely be free in the end. I don't plan on making any kind of money. :D
