New App Helps Actors Learn Lines

Here’s what’s new on the digital scene, straight from www.samuelfrench.com.

Samuel French has teamed up with MyTheaterApps.com, the developer of Scene Partner, an award-winning App that helps actors learn their lines using their own scripts or by choosing from a growing collection of Publisher e-Scripts—the authorized Acting Editions designed specifically for use with Scene Partner. The first wave of select Samuel French titles are available in the Scene Partner webstore for iOS devices (iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch). Apps for other Smartphones and Android devices coming soon. For more information, click HERE.

What is Scene Partner?:

Scene Partner is an app for Apple devices that allows actors to listen to their lines, their cues, or a whole scene to help them learn their lines faster. Actors can listen to a variety of prerecorded voices – available in different dialects as well – or they can record themselves and their cast mates! Each role can be isolated, so every actor can follow their track through the show or they can customize their track by making their own French Scene Breakdown. Everyone stays on the same page, with real time syncing of any cuts or edits to the script!



Greenpeace Dramaturgy

I found this great job description for a Senior Energy Campaigner for Greenpeace Poland.  Look at this application of dramaturgical tools and principles.

Here’s how the company describes itself: “Greenpeace uses non-violent, creative confrontation to expose global environmental problems and force solutions that are essential to a green and peaceful future.”
