I don’t think the school is being honest. Or perhaps they don’t understand. Also probable they don’t want to get into debates with parents over who’s kids can be video taped.

Nobody should be taping these performances for commercial use/profit/politics/distribution, or any other use (a kids play is hardly NEWS worthy so editorial use wouldn’t apply).
