PROGRAMMING NOTES

This show is really a play with a single keyboardist playing underscoring. The keyboard part consists of 41 separate cues that are played throughout the play, 38 of which are played on the keyboard using patches with the other 3 cues being triggered by the sound engineer. Your Broadway Licensing materials will include these 3 sound cues. Our keyboard programming file contains all the sounds needed for the other 38 cues.

These sounds range from acoustic piano to Vox Continental Organ, strings to mallet percussion, auxiliary percussion to SFX, and church organs to timpani just to name a few. The cues vary from just a single measure to some that are 8-16 bars to the longest cue being closet to 100 measures. Although some of the cues are very simple to play, several are much more difficult and will require an advanced pianist to play them accurately. The best “Clue” we can give you is to let KeyboardTEK provide your theater with all the sounds in a single MainStage file for your upcoming production!
