We are thrilled to partner with Dramatists Play Service to license even more productions in Australia and New Zealand of the wonderful contemporary and classic plays and musicals in the DPS catalogue from 1st November 2019.

An outstanding collection of notable works, including the popular and acclaimed plays by Arthur Miller, join our esteemed collection of award-winning musicals.

With the addition of this prestigious catalogue, we are proud to provide our territory with performance rights to such works as “The Crucible”, “All My Sons”, "Death of a Salesman” and “A View from the Bridge” by Arthur Miller; “The Laramie Project” by Moisés Kaufman and members of the Tectonic Theater Project and the many comedies of writing trio, Jones Hope Wooten, to name a few.

Peter Hagan, President of Dramatists Play Service, Inc. said “Dramatists Play Service is thrilled to have a new partner in MTI Australasia, and to continue our happy association with Stuart Hendricks. We look forward to even more productions in Australia and New Zealand of the wonderful contemporary and classic plays in our catalogue. Dramatists Play Service, founded in 1936 by the Dramatists Guild of America and a number of prominent theatre agents, was created to foster opportunity and provide support for playwrights by publishing acting editions of their plays and handling the nonprofessional and professional leasing rights to these works. Our association with MTI Australasia is a natural extension of that original mission.” 

Whilst the works in the DPS catalogue have been available in this territory for years, this new partnership allows more professional productions, previously licensed by overseas agents, to be administered and cared for by our attentive, local agency.  Our robust infrastructure will provide all clients with a streamlined and vibrant experience. 

Stuart Hendricks, Managing Director, Music Theatre International, Australasia, said, “It is a great honour to represent Dramatists Play Service, Inc who for over eighty years has nurtured a vast catalogue featuring many of the world’s greatest playwrights. We are thrilled to work with DPS and to provide our customers with access to this extensive collection of the world’s most-loved classic and contemporary plays.
