Norwalk, CT (PRWEB) February 15, 2013
The stage is set for a new wave of digital e-Scripts from Scene Partner®. New Scene Partner 2.3 gives actors the tools they need to learn lines using digital versions of scripts from the world’s leading theatrical publishers. The next wave of e-Scripts will be available soon from the catalog of the world’s premier play publisher and licensor Samuel French.
MyTheaterApps.com, a developer of mobile applications for the theater community, announced that Scene Partner 2.3 is available on the AppStore beginning today. An award winning app for actors, Scene Partner is a powerful iPhone®, iPad® and iPod Touch® app that helps actors solve the age-old problem of how to memorize lines.
J. Kevin Smith, owner of MyTheaterApps.com and the developer of Scene Partner® stated, “We’re excited to announce the immediate availability of Scene Partner 2.3 on the AppStore. This new version will let our customers enjoy the power and flexibility of Scene Partner with the great new titles that are coming soon from Samuel French.”
With Scene Partner, actors can learn lines using their own scripts or choose from a growing collection of Publisher e-Scripts—the authorized Acting Editions designed specifically for use with Scene Partner. When they arrive on the Scene Partner WebStore, Samuel French e-Scripts will be available at a price of $10.99 to $11.99 per title and will require Scene Partner 2.3 or higher.
Scene Partner's Publisher e-Scripts include the following features:
- e-Scripts are the authorized Acting Editions in Scene Partner’s digital format*
- Actors can use Publisher e-Scripts in Scene Partner on up to 4 of their devices
- Includes a PDF of the printed script that actors can Read in Scene Partner
Theater companies can purchase multiple copies of Scene Partner e-Scripts for their cast members. Distributing e-Scripts to cast members is easy:
- Purchase multiple e-Script copies — one for each cast member who has Scene Partner
- Actor can download only one copy of the e-Script and use it in up to 4 of their devices
- Just like with printed versions, there is no cost to actors to download a Publisher e-Script from a Theater’s Library
