Stage Rights Unveils New Program StageShare


Stage Rights is proud to introduce StageShare, an innovative new program designed to enhance connections made through the art of theatre and make new works easier to produce. With this strategic matchmaking platform, Stage Rights will connect theaters for one common purpose: to collaborate on productions by sharing resources.

StageShare was created in response to the difficulties expressed by a growing number of theatres throughout the country regarding the production of new works. Stage Rights will pair producers interested in mounting the same titles and help facilitate the sharing of resources, such as sets and costumes, between their productions. In addition, producers who participate in StageShare will receive a discount on rehearsal and performance materials.

"Our company was founded by a playwright, so we've always included the fostering of new work as a part of our mission, which is rare for a theatrical publisher," said Samantha Levenshus, Managing Director of Stage Rights, when she recently announced the program at AACTFest 2015, "StageShare is our attempt to offset the financial challenges that many theatres face when producing new work. I think it's an exciting opportunity for us to help bridge the gap that often prevents smaller theatres from presenting these fledgling shows."

StageShare is available for the following titles in its inaugural year: amother musical, Becoming Britney, Camp Rolling Hills, Delphi or Bust, Friends Like These, Gary Goldfarb: Master Escapist, Gotta Dance!, Holiday of Errors, I'm Just Wild About Harry, Miracle in Bedford Falls, Running Mates, Searching for Romeo, The Snow Queen, Summer of Love, and Tales of Tinseltown.
