Pelham High School had to put a stop to its spring musical because a New York licensing house, which owns the rights to the play, didn’t sign a document obligatory under the immigration law.
However, following inquires from the Associated Press, Tams-Witmark Music Library Inc. conceded and signed the necessary document.
As part of the immigration law, all companies working with local or state governments in Alabama must sign sworn documents that maintain employers don’t knowingly hire illegal immigrants.
Even though the necessary documents were finally signed by Tams-Witmark Music Library Inc., the school will a face another road block. It will still have to purchase the rights to the play, which could cost over $1,200.
