: I was wondering if anyone knew what process I would need if I wanted
: to make the movie "The Breakfast Club" into a play..
: I was wondering who I should contact for permission, or
: if it is even necessary, since it is for a small audience...
Try contacting the Studio that pput out the movie. They may own the right or direct you to who does. The Harry Fox agency handles performing rights, the may have the answer. A play for a small group doesn't matter. If it is an infringment the penalties can be costly.
