Stage to Page

— 30th January 2015 —

Reception: The Musical has been published on and is now available for download. Click here to see the production page, buy the script, purchase a class set or simply read a free extract. (Note: There is a massive difference between reading it on paper and seeing it in performance. Even my Mum noted that!)

It's a huge effort to get a script ready for the publisher. A big shout-out to my collaborator Peter de Jager for his work in getting the scores ready for licensing and to my trusty proof readers for their fresh eyes.

Thanks also to the team at the Australian Script Centre for making it possible for independent work to reach a wider audience. It's a thrill to have our work catalogued.

Reception: The Musical
Music and Lyrics - Bethany Simons and Peter de Jager
Book: Bethany Simons

Happy reading, everybody!
