Licence, capture, and stream your next production with MTI. Digitaly celebrate live theatre while creating an additional revenue stream for your organisation.

Introducing a new online licencing, ticketing, and content creation platform made for schools and community theatres to celebrate and showcase live theatre. 

There are four easy steps to get you to your digital opening night:
1. Apply for a Performance License & Streaming Rights Licence
2. Ticket and Create Event
3. Capture Your Production
4. Stream Your Event

We've broken down each step in detail below. Please read these steps thoroughly to familiarise yourself with this exciting new platform. Be sure to check out our FAQs.

Step 1. Apply for Performance & Streaming Rights

STREAMING RIGHTS LICENCE:
We are excited to offer three* different types of Streaming Licences, each with different ways for you to licence, view, and sell tickets to your show:
Live-Streaming: Sell tickets and stream a live event in real-time.
Scheduled Content: Sell tickets and stream pre-recorded content you schedule for viewing at a fixed time or times.
Video On Demand: Upload a pre-recorded video of your event or previous productions for patrons to purchase and watch on-demand.

Be sure to check out our FAQs for more information.

APPLYING FOR A STREAMING RIGHTS LICENCE:
Stream Your Next Production
Live-Streaming - You'll need to apply for a Standard Performance Licence Agreement AND, if the title is available to stream, a Streaming Rights Licence will be included.

MTIA will then prepare and issue you with your Standard Performance Licence Agreement, Streaming Rights Licence and an advance Royalty and hire invoice for your regular in-person performances, based on your ticket prices and average audience size. 

Stream a Past Production
If you are looking to provide Video On Demand or host a viewing of Scheduled Content for a previously recorded production (that you had a video licence for), simply re-apply for a Standard Performance Licence Agreement with the new dates you'd like to host the previously recorded content. Once issued to you, simply return your signed  Streaming Rights Licence along with your Standard Performance Licence Agreement and payment for the relative royalty invoice.

*(Please note that not every show will have the same Streaming Rights available (in some cases all three options will be available, while others may be limited to one type of licence). Additionally, not every show in our catalog is available to stream.)

A Note About Streaming

MTI has worked closely with authors and other rightsholders to make streaming available to amateur groups who are eager to present their shows during these challenging times, despite the unprecedented obstacles producers face in bringing audiences into their theatres.

Whilst these streaming options can deliver a stage performance to remote viewers, we feel strongly that streaming is not a comparable substitute for a live, “in-person” theatrical experience. Theatre is unique in the person-to-person connection it offers to audiences and performers alike and we look forward to the day when streamed performances are no longer necessary to support our customers engaging in this great art form.
