Before starting rehearsals for your chosen show, make sure you have obtained a licence to perform it.

The vast majority of musicals contained in these web pages are protected by Copyright. According to Copyright Law, no public performance or reading of a protected musical or any part of that musical may be given without prior authorisation from the Copyright Holder or their authorised agent.

If in doubt, check with the relevant Copyright Holder or their authorised agent.

The Copyright, Designs and Patent Act 1988, which covers everything you need to know, is the authorised source of information. We have attempted an idiots' guide to the copyright laws in UK. This is NOT a definitive statement and naturally the The Copyright, Designs and Patent Act 1988 itself takes precedence where there is any doubt.

One thing to remember, however, is that the copyright holder, subject to all conditions being met, will issue your society with a licence to perform a work. And that is exactly what it is - a licence to perform the work as published and issued by the Copyright Holder. It does not mean that your director, or any member of your society, is authorised to make any changes to the published text or published score.
