Beat by Beat Press

Beat by Beat Press Your #1 resource for contemporary, high-quality musicals for young actors! www.bbbpress.com
Beat by Beat Press provides new works of contemporary hit children's musicals. Founded by a group of young playwrights, composers and educators in New York City.

Beat by Beat Press was founded by a group of young writers and educators from New York City with an artistic spirit and a passionate objective: to distribute high-quality musicals with fresh stories and characters for performers ages 7-14. We believe in musical theater’s power to unlock a child’s creativity and build self-confidence. That’s why our team has spent the last eight years working directly with kids creating original stories and characters with them in mind. We founded Beat by Beat Press after listening to parents, teachers and directors tell us that schools and theaters back in their community would love the opportunity to produce these fresh and original shows. They wanted musicals that weren’t just adaptations. They, like us, felt that kids should have a chance to act in something made specifically, and especially, for them.

Mission: To develop children's imaginations and build self confidence through musical theater.

Film Critics Captivated By Use Of One Long, Unbroken Take In Parent’s Recording Of Middle School ‘Guys And Dolls’ Production

😂 “The breathtaking decision to tell this story in a single, uninterrupted shot is brilliant, courageous, and unlike anything I’ve ever seen before on screen. Absolutely masterful,” said Hollywood Reporter critic Jon Frosch in his litany of praise for Hannah Malloy’s dad, Andy, noting his commitment to the craft in setting up his tripod six full minutes before the show began and then leaving the lens cap on the camera through the entire opening number, challenging the viewer to rely on senses other than mere sight—"

COLORADO SPRINGS, CO—Heralding the three-hour experience as “a mature, cinematic triumph beyond its time,” film critics offered high praise Tuesday for the single long, unbroken take a theater parent employed to capture a Desert Shadows Middle School production of Guys And Dolls. “The breath...

Tomorrow is the BIG DAY! I just want to soak up every second of it. It's been so stressful the last few weeks, but an exciting kind of stress. I love these kids and am so proud of how they've grown throughout this process. I can't wait to see them shine on that stage! They are ready. We are ready. WE ARE MONSTERS!

Seeking your feedback! We are currently in the very beginning stages of creating a new book of scenes for young actors. This book will be similar to our “Contemporary Scenes for Young Actors”, however this new book will contain all group scenes that involve 3 or more actors. Our question for you: What types of themes, characters, or settings would you like to see explored in scenes for actors age 7-14? What types of themes, characters or settings would you prefer to see avoided? What do you find to be the biggest challenge in finding scenes for this age group? Please leave any feedback you have in the comments below, thank you!

Teaching Improv: How do I help students make their scenes more interesting?

A new activity just added to the blog that will help your students heighten conflict and make their improv scenes more interesting. This is a preview from "Teaching Improv: The Essential Handbook" our newest eBook that is slated for release on Monday, April 1st!

“My students get stuck fixating on one thing in a scene and the scene doesn’t go anywhere…help!” This a common problem when working with beginners in improv. Remind your students that all good stories have a conflict and that the conflict often gets worse and worse before the climax. Play th...

I have been MIA, because I’m finally on spring break. The lead up to vacation was the busiest week of my life. #thegrunch came out amazing! I’m so proud of ALL of the #5thgrade class for giving hands down the best performance ever! It even made national news, thanks to some celebrity parents. 🤪

A key part of the performing arts is understanding the hard work and preparation needed to pull something off of this magnitude. It’s about the process. That’s why so much research shows the improvement and impact that arts education has on other subjects. It’s not about cramming last minute, but combining talent and hard work. It’s not about perfection, but as an educator being able to pull the PERSONAL best out of each individual student. And, that’s why we do what we do...in order to get the product of what was seen on Thursday night. Beyond proud of them!! Thank you again to @artedteacher for helping me pull this off. It could not have been done without you! 😘
