How much do these shows cost to produce?
Shows are $75 for the production package and $25 per performance and there are no shipping or rental fees. You may also buy pre-printed copies of scores if you like, but PDF versions come with the emailed production package.


Will I be able to print the scripts and scores from my computer?
Yes, as long as you have a program which can read and print PDF files installed.


Can I use the MIDI or MP3 files in show performances as “backing tracks” for performances?
MIDI and MP3 files are provided with the production package that match the scores exactly but they are intended as a rehearsal aid which can be emailed to cast members for home practice, not to replace live musicians. This doesn't mean it would be impossible to use them in a performance but it’s suggested if you intend to do that you should have someone who knows how to adjust the files to suit your needs as far as tempo and volume of the various tracks are concerned, which could be accomplished using a program like Apple’s GarageBand.


How do I play MIDI files?
MIDI music files as posted will play with many media players, standard on most computers with an installed sound board, such as Windows Media Player. If you are using a Windows computer and need a player, we recommend the program VanBasco's Karaoke Player, a very nice free program which allows you to change tempo and key of MIDI files while they are being played.

How do I order a show?
Go to this page: Produce a Show! to get your license(s) and Production Package. There are a few steps in the process, but once you take them, you can have your script, score and music files in minutes.


Do I have to return anything after my production is over?
No rental charges are required in order to perform an Storyland show, and nothing must be returned. You may keep your Production files and use them again for further performances by simply filling out another Production Contract and paying appropriate royalties.


What’s e-Junkie? Some kind of spam? Or scam?
Nope, it’s a legitimate, very useful and dependable e-commerce service which allows instant delivery of your download upon payment. Nothing bad, very helpful in fact if you needed that script package yesterday.


Why does the shopping cart PayPal payment address for the license say “orders@serialsquadron.com?” Is this an error?
No, the
Serial Squadron is another small business owned by the same person who owns Storyland which was set up earlier than this one. PayPal allows only one business account per person & payments for products at both sites go to the same place. This is not an error and doesn’t need fixing.


Do you accept purchase orders for royalty payments?
No. They confuse us; this site is set up for instant online ordering and instant online delivery of the production package to you through e-Junkie and PayPal and we don’t send out scores ourselves, they are printed by the print-on-demand service Lulu.com.


I would like to videotape/make a DVD of our production. Is there a way I can do that for free?
You can videotape for free if you send us a copy of your finished video or DVD and allow us to possibly use excerpts on our site.


Where should I send our finished show DVD?
Eric Stedman, 20012 Beacon Hill Drive, Southampton PA 18966
And thank you for doing so. Every time we are able to see a show that helps us make it that much better.


I would like to talk to a real person about a show, who can I call?
Eric Stedman at 215 968 2514, late afternoon/early evening EST.
