What is a cast quantity of scripts?
A “cast quantity” is defined as the minimum number of actors a particular show can be performed with. The cast size can be found on the description page for each title. Theatres are required to purchase a playbook for each actor in their production.
If you already have playbooks from a previous production, you are not required to repurchase them. During the quote/licensing process for your new production, you will just need to indicate that you already have the required number of playbooks.
