Unlike other resources on our platform, if you are planning to stage a musical or to record one, you’ll need a Public Performance Licence from the publisher – so we’ve some great news if you’re looking to put on a Charanga/Starshine Music production this year!

As well as enabling schools to hold as many performances of a production as they like for a fixed annual fee of £20, Starshine Music licences will also cover the following in light of COVID restrictions:

  • Secure live streaming and/or recorded performances on a school’s own website.
  • Secure live streaming and/or recorded performances via Zoom or similar platforms.
  • Video and/or sound recordings made at school for home use.

For more information, please visit our Licensing during COVID-19 page.

* Please note that performing a production at an assembly where only pupils and teachers are present, does not require a Public Performance Licence.
