"As a high school Theatre Director, it is often difficult to choose a musical that is perfectly suited for students," David Weinstein, director, French Woods Festival, said in a previous statement. "Not only do you need to choose material that fits your student roster, but also content that is suited for high school-age kids. We need new work with popular music, created by theatre professionals, and scored and adapted for teenage voices, bands and orchestras. The Stageworks Collection provides us with a great opportunity to combine popular music and high school-set stories. It also put parents and school administrators at ease."
Girls Just Want To Have Fun is the second project developed by Stageworks Media as part of The Stageworks Collection, which includes musicals that are conceived, developed and delivered with the high school performing artist in mind.
