Music Theatre International will bring a musical flair to the Scene Partner e-Script library, thanks to a new Distribution Agreement between the world’s premier musical theatre licensor and leading theatrical app developer MyTheaterApps.com. The agreement will make the scripts of select MTI musicals available digitally on the Scene Partner WebStore for use as a rehearsal tool in the Scene Partner App. Theaters and actors will be able to access MTI e-Scripts to memorize lines while mounting officially licensed productions. The first wave of Music Theatre International titles is expected to be available before the end of 2013.
According to Drew Cohen, President of Music Theatre International, “Scene Partner represents another leap forward in our delivery of digital rehearsal tools to our customers. Combining the app’s innovative features with our outstanding collection of the world’s greatest musicals will be a boon for our customers.”
J. Kevin Smith, owner of MyTheaterApps.com and the developer of Scene Partner®, stated, “We are thrilled to be a part of Music Theatre International’s impressive suite of Theatrical Resources. MTI’s customers rely on these great tools to help make their productions as professional as possible. Scene Partner will fit right in with this collection of products by giving actors the tool they need for learning lines for MTI shows.” Scene Partner is a powerful iPhone®, iPad® and iPod Touch® app that helps actors with the age-old problem of how to memorize lines.
Scene Partner customers will be able to find the MTI titles in the company’s online store at www.Shop.ScenePartnerApp.com. When available, Theaters will be able to rent multiple copies of an officially licensed MTI play and distribute the e-Scripts to their casts during the term of performance licenses through a secure, online theater library. Actors who are participating in MTI- licensed productions will be able to rent a copy of the e-Scripts for their personal libraries as well.
