Frequently Asked Questions About Promotions and Advertising

Can we use the artwork on the script cover or create our own artwork for promotional purposes?

Use of script artwork is reviewed on a case by case basis. Please contact Dramatic Publishing to inquire about use of artwork for a specific title.

Yes, you may create your own artwork to promote your production. However, please be sure to understand and abide by all copyright laws if you plan to use artwork created by another artist.

How can I submit photos from my production for possible use in Dramatic Publishing's promotional materials?

Please email high-resolution photos from your production to our customer service department and include the following information:

  • Title of the play or musical
  • Date of the performance
  • Name and address of the producing organization
  • Actors' names as they appear from left to right. If there are more than five actors pictured, names are not necessary.

Receipt of the photos/artwork constitutes permission to use unless the photos are taken by a professional photographer, in which case you will need to secure permission for unlimited use from the photographer. Please note that photos/artwork mailed to us will not be returned.

What are the requirements for billing and credit?

Wherever the title of the play appears for purposes of advertising, publicizing, or otherwise promoting the play and/or your production, the name(s) of the author(s) must be at least half the size of the title of the play.

The statement "Produced by special arrangement with THE DRAMATIC PUBLISHING COMPANY of Woodstock, Illinois" must appear on all programs and any other promotional material generated for this production.

Please also review any special billing requirements that may appear on the Important Billing and Credit Requirements page in the front of the printed playbook.
