Has anyone done (or seen) Rhythm City by Jeremy Moritz? Just curious about your experience with it. I am doing it this year (high school) and have permission to set it in the 50s.

I had a very good experience producing Rhythm City three years ago.  The beauty of it is the royalties are reasonable, costuming is extremely flexible, and the set can be as suggestive or elaborate as you like.  We really enjoyed it.  If you would like to discuss further, in a not so open forum, feel free to contact me at joel.kaczmarczyk@...  I think you will enjoy the show, and so will your audience

I did Rhythm City Jr. 3 years ago.  I loved it!!!!! The music was a bit more challenging than the normal Broadway Jr. music but that is not a bad thing.  The choreography is well done.  Obviously you can adapt anything you want to the level of the students.  I e-mailed Jeremy a number of times with questions and he was extremely glad to respond.  My students loved having a "relationship" with the writer/composer of the musical they were doing.  The costuming is so easy because of it being just normal kid clothing.  There are obviously some gender specific roles needed but most of the "gang" kids were girls in my version. 

For the junk yard, I just went around my neighborhood on Saturday mornings before the trash men did their pick up. I put all the junk on a platform with wheels.  I also used a net instead of rope when capturing the crooks.  It was easier.

I highly recommend it and Jeremy to you.  If you want more info, please feel free to write me at   scarlwood@...
