Norwalk, CT (PRWEB) March 27, 2014
Music Theatre International (MTI) and MyTheaterApps.com announce that, with their new partnership started last year, MTI’s most popular titles are now 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.
According to John Prignano, Senior Operations Officer of Music Theatre International, “One of MTI’s missions is the creation of memorable experiences for our customers by supporting and helping them during every stage of their theatrical journey. With Scene Partner, we’re now able to use state-of-the-art technology to help actors and directors maximize the rehearsal process by learning their lines through an interactive app and really exploring an MTI script.”
A selection of MTI’s most popular musicals, now available for Scene Partner, can be found on the MTI Shop of the Scene Partner WebStore.
Theatres are able to rent multiple copies 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 are able to rent a copy of the e-Scripts for their personal libraries as well. More information is available at http://www.scenepartnerapp.com.
With the Scene Partner® App, actors can divide their scripts by character, act and scene while taking advantage of interactive features such as the ability to record their lines or use computer voices for text to speech playback.
