Robert Boland & Paul Argentini

Published by Scarecrow Press

Musicals! is an illustrated sourcebook that provides comprehensive, step-by-step guidance for musical directors, teachers, administrators, students, and actors

Boland and Argentini emphasize the director's role in the three main building blocks for mounting a musical show: preparation, production, and performance

They discuss in particular the preparation of the director's prompt book, an invaluable tool that facilitates the entire process of rehearsals, staging, and blocking

Musicals! takes the reader through selecting which show to perform, obtaining the script (and the associated legal and licensing responsibilities involved), holding auditions, casting, developing a rehearsal schedule, choreographing musical numbers, preparing publicity, and running the box office

It also includes a checklist for opening night and instructions for the final strike as well as discussion of lighting, costumes, safety precautions, and advice on creating different kinds of sets
