The primary purpose of the Association for Theatre in Higher Education (ATHE) database is the facilitation of access by interactive theatre companies to scripts created by other interactive theater companies for on-campus performances.
ATHE facilitates acquisition of licenses to perform interactive theatre scripts by providing access to ATHE's online database.
ATHE's online database contains:
- summaries of interactive theatre scripts provided to ATHE by the scripts' copyright holder(s);
- casting and technical requirements for performance of the scripts, also provided to ATHE by the scripts' copyright holder(s);
- contact information for the scripts' copyright holder(s); and
- contract forms for "Script Licensing Agreement," "Agreement Between ATHE and Copyright Holders of Interactive Theater Scripts," and "Copyright Release Agreement."
ATHE gratefully acknowledges the assistance of the University of Missouri-Columbia in helping to fund the creation of this database through a grant from The Chancellor's Fund for Excellence and through additional support from the Department of Theatre. The responsibility for creation and updating of this database's content, however, rests solely with ATHE. \
