Centenary Stage Company launches 

Recorded LIVE! Series
with Rent Control 

WHEN: now available for digital streaming through November 15.

All rentals are $10.00 and active rentals are available for 72 hours after purchase. 
All rentals must be made through the Centenary Stage Company website

The brand-new program is set to feature a variety of live programming presented during CSC’s 2020-21 season in an on-line digital format for a limited time.  

“It’s all pretty exciting, like our own version of Amazon Prime but for live CSC events,” said General Manager Christopher Young, “although we are taking every precaution to create a safe in-person theatre experience, we ultimately recognize that there may be folks who just don’t quite feel comfortable yet returning to the theatre for in-person programming so we continue to explore options to bring our programming to our patrons in a variety of different accessible digital formats.” 

The Recorded LIVE! Series is the first of a variety of digital programming Centenary Stage Company plans to offer during the 2020-21 season, including Live Streaming options for certain events.  All Recorded LIVE! Series events utilize a multi-camera set up that records a live performance of the presented event. Once recorded, footage is compiled and edited together to create a cohesive viewing experience. “It really is quite complex.” says Young, “multiple cameras allow us to capture multiple angles and frames that, when edited together, allows us to create a really dynamic video presentation of the live performance. We were really inspired by the National Theatre Live series and the way in which they are creating digital cinematic adaptations of their live performances.”

To rent visit and select the available video of your choice. Once selected, patrons will be presented with the rental option and prompted to sign in or create a member account. Member accounts are required in order to participate. Once an account is created patrons will be prompted to either enter their credit card information into the secure checkout system or to process payment via PayPal. Once payment is processed and accepted, in either of the two available formats, the video will automatically be made available for a 72-hour period and patrons may watch the video as frequently during the rental period as they wish. Patrons who wish to rent and watch at another time during the rental period may do so by simply logging back into their member account when they visit the Centenary Stage Company website.
