The Days feel overworked, demanding an 8th day be added to the week. Tuesday and Friday’s friendship is not what it used to be. And Mother Nature makes a surprising appearance which puts everyone on edge!

Production Kit & Pricing


High-Quality & Affordable

Every Beat by Beat musical comes with a Production Kit that provides everything you 
need at one simple, affordable price.

You’ll find the cost of our Production Kits to be half the price of other large musical theatre publishers. Plus, we never charge extra for the things you really want (license to video record, license to make copies, logos, etc.) It’s all included.


The Production Kit includes:



Actor Book

The script the actors use. Clear, simple and professionally formatted to help give your actors a true theatre experience. The vocal sheet music is seamlessly integrated into the script to make your rehearsals run without a hitch. (PDF Download)



Director Book

A comprehensive guide to casting, sets, props and costumes. Plus the entire script with embedded notes on directing, choreography and music cues throughout. On the bottom of each page is a blank stage template for you to keep track of your blocking. (PDF Download)



Piano-Vocal Score

Professionally arranged Piano-Vocal Sheet music of the entire show in an easy to read format with script cues. Perfectly matches the Accompaniment Recordings. (PDF Download)



Logo Pack

Attract audiences and sponsors with professional logos on posters, programs, handbills, and advertising. Show logos are provided in multiple digital formats. You’re allowed to use them in any way you wish, including on cast t-shirts! (JPEG and PNG Download)



Vocal CD/Recordings

The vocal recordings let your actors enjoy learning, practicing and perfecting the show’s songs with professional New York City performers as their guide. This allows your actors to arrive at rehearsals fully prepared. (MP3 Download and free CD Shipment for U.S. Customers only)



Accompaniment CD/Recordings

Also known as backing or karaoke tracks. All the instrumental music that actors can perform along with during the show. Professionally orchestrated to sound just like a Broadway orchestra. Includes sounds effects and scene change music. Music Cues in the Director Book tell you when to press “play”. (MP3 Download and free CD Shipment for U.S. Customers only)



Copy License

No more wondering, “Did I order enough scripts for everyone?” The Copy License gives you the flexibility to copy and print as many scripts as you need for your entire cast and crew throughout the duration of your production. (PDF Download)



Video Recording License

The video recording license takes the “worry” out of turning your stage production into sharable videos. You can legally video record your production, upload it to YouTube, or share it with your cast – so long as it’s being used for non-commercial purposes. (PDF Download)


The materials above are provided conveniently via digital download within 24 hours of payment. The Accompaniment CD and Vocal CD are shipped free and will arrive within 5-7 business days (to U.S. residents only).
