Penn Manor Productions

Penn Manor Productions is the organization that oversees the production of two shows each year: a fall play and a spring musical.

PMP is primarily a self-funded activity, and is responsible for a large portion of the production costs, which include:

  • Royalties & Materials from each show’s licensing company – and costs that exceed the funds provided by the district.  Costs for: scripts, sheet music and contracts.
    • Fall Shows: Spelling Bee was $3250.  Twelve Angry Jurors was approximately $500, And Then There Was None was $1450.
    • Spring Shows: Grease was almost $9000, includes additional costs for adding songs from the movie.  Mermaid was almost $4000.  Mary Poppins is $4550.

      • District funds $2000 each year (for both fall & spring shows).
