    Doubt you could get your hands on it in the open, especially the Jr. version. You can prob find a libretto of the full version at a local bookstore and read that, that could get you close. With the Jr. versions they usually cut most of the stuff out, keep it in fewer locations, and make the music much easier. Talk to your director, odds are they have the full libretto.

    The director or company manager gets an advance copy once they start the contract process.

    You couls contact MTI and they could probably send you a demo script, especially if the school has already contracted for the rights to the show.
    MTI usually will send scripts out for read thrus, but they might charge a rental fee.

    If you don't return it they execute you in a public square.

    Hey, I know that and I live in Australia. Music Theatre International they have a very large library of musicals and handle them for performance rights.

    Yeah actually. Why not work on musicals. I love lighting them, it's fantasyland.

    Unfortunately they are necessary evil in the theatre world. I doubt anyone genuinely likes a licensing firm period.

    Um, I don't see how it helps you, but I have a copy of the Music Man Junior script form Broadway Junior on my shelf. It's a bit marked up from mic cues though
