Musical Mayhem Productions, Inc. proudly opened our doors in June of 2012 and has successfully produced over 150 Broadway Jr. and Kids performance workshops/summer camps in Elk Grove and Sacramento. Our first production, Disney’s The Jungle Book, had nine cast members and performed four shows for about 500 audience members. Our largest production to date, Disney Frozen, Jr. (November 2019), had 123 cast members and reached over 4,000 audience members for its six show run!
MMP is also highly involved with local elementary schools; producing school musicals as a third party to fill the lack of performing arts education mostly victim to budget cuts. Since 2012, MMP has produced over 50 school shows, including 16 Home School workshops which cater specifically to Home Schooled students. As an approved vendor to many Charter Schools, we are able to offer Musical Theater Education programs in the Elk Grove/Sacramento area.
Our Master Academy, which meets twice weekly for 11 months, is the premier program for Musical Theater Education. Our focus is Acting, Singing, and Dance in order to prepare for excellence in Performing Arts. Each level of Master Academy participates in Educational trips to Disneyland, Disney World, New York City, and the Junior Theatre Festival in Atlanta and Sacramento, where we’ve received national recognition for Excellence in Music, Ensemble Work, Acting, and most recently, Outstanding Performance for our 15 minute edit of Disney Aladdin, Jr. at JTF West, Sacramento in February of 2019 and Disney Mary Poppins, Jr. in 2020. Our Seniors are currently applying to colleges including the best Musical Theater programs in the Country, and we hope to continue to produce talented and confident individuals for years to come.
In 2019, Musical Mayhem Productions was selected as a Pilot program for newly adapted Boradway Jr. shows by Musical Theatre International (MTI), the leading rights company for youth theatre. As a Pilot program, we are asked to produce new adaptations of Broadway Shows destined for the Junior catalog before they are released to the general public.
iTheatrics takes the full content from the Broadway show and adapts it to be suitable for young performers. In the summer of 2019, MMP completed its first Pilot, The Drowsy Chaperone, Jr. and are currently scheduled to produce 13, The Musical, Jr when its safe to do so. The Pilot Productions are filmed and shown to the authors to ensure the content is still true to how they originally intended.
