THEATRE ONTARIO FESTIVAL

 

 

 


Theatre Ontario Welcomes Ron Cameron-Lewis as Festival 2015 Adjudicator

Theatre Ontario is thrilled to welcome Ron Cameron-Lewis as adjudicator for the 2015 Theatre Ontario Festival in Oshawa.  The Festival will be Ron’s penultimate appearance as an adjudicator in Ontario, leading to his “swan song” appearance as adjudicator of the 2016 Western Ontario Drama League Festival (although he will continue with some international theatre work.)

”I am honored to be invited to adjudicate the Theatre Ontario Festival in Oshawa,” said Ron Cameron-Lewis.  “This marks the fifth time in the past 29 years that I have been asked to adjudicate the top productions from around the province. Having attended many more Theatre Ontario Festivals as well, I look forward to reconnecting with many friends from all aspects of my half century of experience in community theatre.”

Ron is well known to community groups across the province as a teacher, adjudicator and workshop leader.  He has adjudicated well over 2,000 productions throughout Ontario for community and educational theatre festivals, as well as in the USA at state, regional, national and international levels. Since 2010, he has taught the art of adjudication to 50 people, three times at Theatre Ontario Festivals and twice at AACT national festivals in Rochester, New York, and Carmel, Indiana.  In 2010, Sheridan Institute of Technology and Advanced Learning appointed him Professor Emeritus, and in 2013, Ron was elected as Member-at-Large for the American Association of Community Theatres for a three-year term.

Theatre Ontario Festival 2015 will be held in Oshawa from May 13 to 17, 2015 and is co-hosted by Theatre Ontario, Oshawa Little Theatre, and the Association of Community Theatres—Central Ontario.

MUSICAL REVUES

Creating Musical Revues--legally
from ACCT Knowledge Base


Putting together a revue based on numbers from Broadway shows has its challenges.

One is that performing songs under copyright requires that you get clearance from the publishers. The best way is go through ASCAP or BMI, which represent composers and lyricists. Such clearance, however, has certain limitations. One danger area in particular is the revue that presents fully staged, costumed production of individual numbers. This is a violation of the authors' copyright.

"The only legal performance of such numbers is without costumes and sets specifying the show's content, with no dialogue used into or around the song, and a valid ASCAP or BMI 'small rights' performance license," says John Prignano of Music Theatre International. "Such a performance license does not cover dramatic presentation of such songs, only their performance a la cabaret, or in concert, and normally only three songs from any one musical can be performed."

Prignano urges you to pay particular attention to proper licensing when putting together revues of this nature. "Checking with the licensing agency that represents the musical from which the number or numbers come can save a lot of grief during or after production," he says. "It is also wise to check with the music publisher, since some songs need special clearance even for cabaret or concert presentation. 'Adelaide's Lament,' from Guys and Dolls, is a good case in point-­composer Frank Loesser never wanted it performed outside the confines of the show, and his music publisher clears each specific performance.

"Performance rights are a complicated business and asking permission never hurts," Prignano adds. "After all, there are plenty of revues already cleared and waiting to be licensed by MTI and other licensing agencies."

Songs performed without any reference to the original staging (no costumes, dialogue, or choreography referring to the context of the show) can be cleared through the music licensing organization representing the particular song or composer. The sheet music normally lists the organization representing the particular song (normally at the bottom of the title page.)  The simplest point of contact for both ASCAP and BMI is via their websites, which provide licensing information and allow you to submit requests for performance of authors whom they represent.

Both sites have search forms, so you can search for particular songs or songwriters.
