The Scene Partner e-Script library continues to grow, thanks to an agreement between musical theatre licensor Theatrical Rights Worldwide (TRW) and leading theatrical app developer MyTheaterApps.com. The agreement will make the scripts of select TRW musicals available digitally on the Scene Partner WebStore for use as a rehearsal tool in the Scene Partner App. TRW joins theatrical licensors Samuel French, Dramatists Play Service and Music Theatre International in establishing an e-Script distribution deal with MyTheaterApps.com. Theaters and actors will be able to access TRW e-Scripts to memorize lines while mounting officially licensed productions. The first wave of TRW titles is expected to be available before the end of 2013. TRW’s current offerings include the popular titles SPAMALOT, ALL SHOOK UP and CURTAINS.
According to Steve Spiegel, President and CEO of Theatrical Rights Worldwide, “We are thrilled to bring Scene Partner®, the premier theatrical app developer, into the TRW family of suppliers of top tier rehearsal and production tools. With our growing catalogue of popular Broadway titles, TRW’s theatre organizations will enjoy and benefit from the state of the art characteristics the Scene Partner App provides.”
J. Kevin Smith, owner of MyTheaterApps.com and the developer of Scene Partner®, stated, “We are excited to add Scene Partner to the impressive suite of ShowGo! Production tools available for use with TRW titles. TRW’s customers depend on these essential tools to help make their productions a top-notch experience for both their audiences and the actors who perform in their productions.” 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 TRW titles in the company’s online store at www.Shop.ScenePartnerApp.com. When titles become available, Theaters will be able to rent multiple copies of an officially licensed TRW 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 TRW- licensed productions will be able to rent a copy of the e-Scripts for their personal libraries as well.
