If You See One Musical This Year...

So, at school, we have an option called Senior Projects, in which we can opt out of completing the last term of our courses in order to work on a big project of our own personal choosing. For years, I was planning to do a stage adaptation of Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, but I'm taking two APs (which are undroppable), I could never find out how to secure the rights from the Adams estate, and... well, this happened.

My classmate Annina, on the other hand, has found a way to put on the show of her dreams. She's got most of the cast sorted out, so all she has to do is secure the rights. And that show?

"Once More, With Feeling." Oh, yes. And Annina's playing Anya, "because then I get to be afraid of bunnies."

There is no damn way I'm missing this. And even though Xander's already been cast, I wonder how likely it is for a kid who sang in his church's choir and has minimal acting experience to get cast as Giles...

wait, what? you can't just leave it like that. we need details! where in the country do we need to fly to see the show?? when is it?? i am *SO* not joking here.
If you're anywhere within the vicinity of Wellesley, MA, then make the journey.

Ok, I'm from a theatre company in Perth, Western Australia and in 2006 we would love to do Once More with Feeling. Do you know how your friend got permission to stage it? I may be able to help you with a name for who to contact at Disney, who hold the rights to Hitchiker's :)
