What it takes to put on a musical

A lot of people don’t truly appreciate what it takes to produce musical of this proportion, like the underwear space musical.

We wanted to give you a brief insight to the inner workings of how this musical was developed so that you may further appreciate our play in the entrance masterpiece.


So first you need to have an incredibly diverse amount of writers or at least one writer that is incredibly diverse in there thinking that can come up with the concept of the musical. Then he actually have to sit down for anywhere from a month to over two years to actually write the script of the musical and you also need to write music. So each process has its own genius. It’s very uncommon that one person or even one group of people can write the entire play as well as musical. I did have one friend who wrote the musical “Teeth” who did everything but he was a very talented individual.


So usually you have someone write the screenplay and music separately. And that needs to be approved by some kind of producer. And the producer is it will take between 1 to 6 months in determining whether not they want to pursue a contract with you so that they get a share of the royalties from this movie. Or a musical in our case. And they also need to approve the. Music in the movie. And then you didn’t submit for copywriting. And trademarking and any other legal processes. This is probably the least favorite of mine because it’s the least fun it’s all business and technical stuff. Then after we need to have tryouts for the cast. For a musical you need to make sure that they can sing obviously, but then also an active perform live.¬† Then you need to hire the cast, and then you need to practice practice practice.

Set the date

Did I mention you need to have a date set as well? This is when you plan on going live. Or at least producing your first production of the show. And then when all that said and done you need to practice more and then have a live run through and make sure that your sound is working and that everyone knows their lines. This needs to happen in every location unless you’re doing it at one location. And this is just some and not even all of what goes into making a musical production like the underwear and space Museum. So now I can hope that you can appreciate a little bit more all the work that goes¬†into it.
