Licence: If you are planning to stage a musical in whole in public, at the concert, or to record the performance, you need to apply to ASTRUM Music Publications ( / Re: Yearly Licence) and purchase a YEARLY PERFORMING LICENCE - valid for 12 months from on a calendar year basis. A competent performing rights society is collecting royalties for the individual performances (songs, excerpts, etc.) of the musical.
Synopsis: The music play takes place in a forest clearing. In the background is the ant castle (see cover). An ant exits and enters through the castle gate. The scene also includes: Bindweed, Snail, Flowers, bushes and trees. The stage is mostly darkened except during the moon and the rising sun. Fireflies are dressed in dark brown clothes. The firefly should stand out slightly from the outside. The flashlights are equipped with a front bicycle or cave lamp. The rest of the clothes should match the characters (flowers, snails...). The star, moon and sun can be represented by light bodies or they can be projected. In this case, their parts are sung by singers behind the stage. The light should increase with the arrival of the moon and the sun. When Kresniček / Firefly gets his light back, the light on the stage should be slightly reduced. The bear and the animals and the gnomes should dance with a larger moving light (illuminated pumpkin). If there are no conditions for performing these two dances, you can omit them. Three copies of the score are required for the performance. For (hidden): choirmaster, pianist and director. A libretto (text only) is available for the singers and actors as well as the director.
