Parameters[change source]

The purpose of this list is to set more detailed guidelines for the content of the {{Infobox Musical}} template. The purpose of detailing the template is to further Wikipedia:WikiProject Musicals's goal of standardizing Wikipedia's musical theatre articles. Please leave feedback on the talk page.

The title of the musical
Usually, "The Musical" or similar language.
Acceptable images may include:
  • Promotional posters
  • CD covers
  • Playbill covers
  • Logos
Note: If no image is present, the page is added to Category:Musical theatre articles missing an image in infobox
Use to reduce the image to a size, generally between 150px and 260px, that keeps it from becoming distorted. To use actual size of the stored image, put: image_size=0 (default: 215px). Allows alias spelling as keyword "imagesize". NOTE - this parameter is REQUIRED for the image to display correctly
Explanation of image. Please be brief ("Original Cast Recording" or "Logo"...); however, for fair-use images, include production date/name or for attribution, state name of artist(s).
The composer. Several composers should be separated by line-breaks <br>. Should the music be credited as an adaptation, the original composer should be listed first, a line break, a bolded (triple-apostrophe) heading with the words " ' ' ' Adapted by: ' ' ' ", another line-break, and the adapters.
The name of the lyricist, with caveats as for the music field.
The name of the book-writer, with caveats as above.
This section should be included if the musical was based either directly or indirectly on another source.
