Licensing and copyright
If you need any further information on licensing and copyright, please feel free to email us on firstname.lastname@example.org and we will be delighted to try to assist you. Hopefully, the following details should answer most of your questions.
A performance licence is required by law for the performance of any work involving drama, movement or spoken dialogue (e.g. a musical or a nativity) other than to pupils and staff. A Performing Rights Society (PRS) Licence will not cover musicals.
As part of your ‘all inclusive’ package with our musical plays, however, we hereby grant you the following Performance Licence and Copying Licence at no extra charge.
The Performance Licence covers the purchasing school or person only for a period of 12 months from the date of purchase and allows:
- Unlimited performances of the purchased material to audiences of up to 200 people. The performances must be within 12 months of the date of purchase and this licence will expire thereafter and will need to be renewed for performances outside the 12 month period.
- Playback of the backing tracks and/or vocal tracks at performances.
- Use of all the songs and scripts etc from the purchased play in the classroom for teaching, and also in assemblies.
- Performances in schools and any venues other than schools by amateur dramatics groups, church groups and stage schools whether charging admission or not.
If in any doubt about whether or not the Performance Licence covers your intended use, please contact us.
The Copying Licence covers the purchasing school or person only for a period of 12 months from the date of purchase and allows you to:
- Print or make additional copies of the material as long as they are used by the purchasing school or person only.
- Print additional copies of the music scores for musicians playing in the performances.
- Make copies of the song lyrics to use in the performances. This also includes displaying/projecting lyrics on screens etc at the performance. Please ensure that you credit us on any lyrics with “Reproduced by kind permission © Popcorn School Ltd.”
- Share the audio/mp3 files as long as it is just between teachers and students of the purchasing school or organisation.
- The Performance Licence and Copying Licence does not cover any other usage.
- The Performance Licence and Copying Licence is non-transferable and is for the exclusive use of the school or person placing the order.
- The Performance Licence and Copying Licence does not cover any professional performances in professional and/or commercial venues (e.g. theatres). For this type of commercial use, please contact us.
Please note: Audio/video/dvd recordings etc are not covered by the included licence. Please contact us here if you wish to make recordings. We allow uploading of audio/video recordings of your performances of our musicals onto public websites, subject to the following:

- You clearly state the name of the musical and song, and credit it to us on any uploaded recordings as “Copyright © Popcorn School Ltd.
Please note: Royalty payments become immediately due if you perform any of the songs from the musical (rather than the musical itself), to the public. If you or your school has a PRS (Performing Rights Society) Licence (sometimes these are arranged through the local authority), please inform the PRS if you perform any of our songs. Please contact us directly if you don’t have a PRS licence.
