    It's The Weekend! We've Got a New Show, a Cabaret, and Great News Coming Next Week
    The Marvelous Wonderettes: Dream On
    The Marvelous Wonderettes: Dream On
    Jun 13, 2020 - Jun 21, 2020
    SRT Livestream
    Our next show opens Saturday! It’s 1969, and The Marvelous Wonderettes are back at Springfield High (Go Chipmunks!) to throw a retirement party for their favorite homeroom teacher. As the girls sing their way through the greatest girl-group hits of the '60s and bid Ms. McPherson a fond farewell, one of the Wonderettes reveals she’ll also be saying goodbye to search for success and happiness on her own. Act II finds the girls back together as the class of 1958 celebrates their 20-year reunion. The classic pop and rock hits of the '70s provide the perfect soundtrack for these old friends to catch up on the places life has led them, all performed with their own marvelous spin!
     
    Cabaret Tonight! It's Friday Baby!
    8pm
    Your favorite night of the week. We've been livestreaming for almost 100 days now, and Friday nights have been some of the best attended. Some of the regions best theatre performers will livestream their favorite songs every Friday night at 8pm in a Friday Night Cabaret at the Seacoast Rep. 
    Tip artists through Venmo, chat with other guests in the livechat, and feel a little less alone and cooped up. 
    We now offer the ability to request songs ahead of time for a $100 donation. Songs must be requested by 3pm on the Thursdays before a show. Donations for requests can be made here. 
    As always, our livestreams are free for Seniors & healthcare workers. Send an email to kathleen.cavalaro@seacoastrep.org and request to be added.
    Want access to all of our livestream events? Join our Patreon at the $50 or higher and get free access to all of our upcoming livestreams!
    Our Friday Night Cabarets are proudly sponsored by Sue & Bob Thoresen. 
    Did you catch us in the New York Times?
    Talk about "All The News that's Fit to Print"! Our little livestreams have been getting noticed. That's us in today's issue of the New York Times.
    Thank you to theatre journalist and critic Elisabeth Vincentelli for taking the time to see what's happening in our corner of the world and for documenting the strange process of converting a theatre to a live production studio.
     
    How To Stream
    While adjusting to live-streaming some of our patrons may be using certain tech for the first time. Us too! We’re happy to help as best we can. 
    Here is what you need to know:
    • These events are truly live. You will not have access to them before they are recorded for the first time. Many will not be available for replay or rewind. Please be ready to watch live!
    • These events require a stable internet connection and a device that is capable of audio and video. If you can watch Youtube videos you can probably watch ours.
    • While these are filmed at the theatre, they are not open to the public at the theatre, only online. Please do not come to the theatre. We’ll want to let you in but we can’t.
    Our content is streamed through a browser-based video service, Crowdcast, and if you can stream other content like it, odds are you can stream ours. However, there are a number of things that could affect your ability to watch based on hardware and software on your end. Since everyone’s devices are different, and these events are live, we are probably not able to help you troubleshoot, nor will we be able to refund your purchase if a technology issue on your end keeps you from watching. 
    When you purchase a digital ticket, you will receive a receipt - this is not your ticket. You will receive a separate email from Crowdcast with a link within 24 - 48 hours of your purchase, unless your purchase is the day-of the event. If you purchase your ticket the day of the event, please check your email 1-2 hours before the start time for your registration link. Click on your registration link from Crowdcast and follow prompts to let you in to the show.
    You will have time to test your audio and video setup. You can do so with a Youtube link, one of our prior Crowdcasts, or any other browser-based video.
    Again: These events are to be live-streamed from your home. While we film at the theatre, the theatre is closed to the public. Please do not come to the theatre. You will be turned away. 
    Follow our hot tips:
    • Ensure you use the same email for purchasing tickets that you use to stream. Do not give fake information or you will not get what you need to stream.
    • Ensure your computer is updated to the most recent software.
    • Test your setup with other videos before trying ours.
    • Ensure you have the time and date correct for the content. Most of our content is live. You will not be able to access it before it streams live for the first time. For some content you will not be able to access it after the live event, just like a theatre performance. 
    Here are some common ways to put our content on a larger screen:
    If your TV is a smart TV, is connected to the internet, and has a browser, simply access the email or ticketing link from that browser.
    If your computer has an HDMI output, and your television has an HDMI input, connect the two with an HDMI cable and set your television to the proper HDMI input (there may be multiple).
    If you are using Apple TV, we recommend following Apple’s instructions here: https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT205358. You can also use screen mirroring through compatible devices.
    If you are using Chromecast, we recommend following the directions here: https://support.google.com/chromecast/answer/6006232?hl=en
    Thank you again and if you have any questions, please don't hesitate to ask!
