Norwalk, CT (PRWEB) April 02, 2014
Theatrical Rights Worldwide (TRW) and MyTheaterApps.com announce the Grand Opening of the Theatrical Rights Worldwide Shop on the Scene Partner® WebStore. After launching the first three titles in December 2013 (SPAMALOT, ALL SHOOK UP and CURTAINS), e-Scripts for the Scene Partner App are now available for Tony Award-winning Best Musical MEMPHIS, GHOST THE MUSICAL and THE ADDAMS FAMILY.
Scene Partner is a powerful iPhone®, iPad® and iPod Touch® app that helps actors with the age-old problem of how to memorize lines. The Scene Partner App WebStore gives licensors a secure way to offer theater organizations and actors access to e-Scripts to memorize lines while mounting officially licensed productions.
Six of TRW’s most popular scripts are now available as digital e-Scripts on the Scene Partner WebStore for use as a rehearsal tool in the Scene Partner App. Theatrical Rights Worldwide joins theatrical licensors Samuel French, Dramatists Play Service and Music Theatre International in offering multiple titles for use with Scene Partner.
According to Steve Spiegel, President and CEO of Theatrical Rights Worldwide, “We’re proud to be launching these three new titles and opening the TRW shop. Scene Partner, the premier theatrical app developer, is an integral part of our top tier rehearsal and production tool resources. TRW’s customers are telling us they want what the Scene Partner App provides. Everyone can see the value of getting their actors off-book early.”
J. Kevin Smith, owner of MyTheaterApps.com and the developer of Scene Partner, stated, “We are excited to add three new TRW titles and to announce the Grand Opening of their new e-Script Shop! 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 customers can find the TRW titles in the company’s online store at http://www.Shop.ScenePartnerApp.com. Theaters can rent multiple copies of an officially licensed TRW musical 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.
