Theatrical Performances

Who's this licence for?

This licence covers the use of songs and compositions in theatrical productions. Music used in a 'dramatic context' within theatre, dance & shows.

How do I Apply?

Dramatic Context applications should be submitted approximately six to eight weeks prior to performance, with three weeks as a minimum. This allows for the music research required to determine copyright ownership, publishing and availability.

APRA AMCOS will confirm the type licence required for your event and advise on music availability within three to five days of receiving your application (there may be slight delays during peak periods).

When all music has been approved for your production, we can then grant a licence agreement to cover the use of music for the performance period as per your application.
