In 1979, Freelance Players, Inc. began publishing its original musical theater productions under the Freelance Press to ensure our repertoire of original productions were available to music and theater educators who are seeking age-appropriate material for their students.
Our plays and scores are developed by a national network of arts programs and children’s theaters. Playwrights and composers, working directly with young actors and singers, have created shows to match the voices, interests and sensibilities of young people, ages eight to eighteen.
All Freelance Press plays have been tested in successful productions with children of many ages. They can accommodate large casts, allowing an entire class or theater company to participate, as well as flexible casting of male/female, according to the director’s needs.
Whether adaptations of classics or original works that address contemporary themes, Freelance Press plays have excited and entertained audiences young and old with wit and sophistication. Treat your actors and audiences to an original play from Freelance Press!
