I agree that the presentation elements themselves would be their own
copyright, which is why I separated them.  But my point was that the holder
of those would have to be the school or the drama director and hence it was
a "local" decision to prevent photographing, not a remote "you can't argue
with them 'cause that's their stock contract" rationale.  The local decision
I could take to the principal and point out exactly how stupid it was to
make such a decision regarding a school play.

I am sorry, but I think the drama director was absolutely right if maybe 
a little over zealous under the circumstances. The production, the stage 
set, the costumes, the lighting etc. etc. would all have been copyright 
in their own right so it is not only the copyright of Rogers and 
Hammerstein that has to be taken into consideration.
