In addition to traditional live stage performance rights, Agatha Rex can also be performed under the following scenarios.

Virtual Performance

A Virtual Performance is a performance on an online web conferencing platform such as Zoom, Microsoft Teams, Skype, or Google Meets where performers are geographically isolated from one another and not together on a stage.

No audience is physically present with the performers. The audience is logged in to the same web conferencing platform as the performers.

Each time the play is performed for a virtual audience of any size (whether or not admission is charged) constitutes one performance.

Livestream Performance

Productions of Agatha Rex may be Livestreamed.

All Livestream Performances must be conducted through our Authorized Streaming Partner, BookTix. Please contact BookTix at info@booktix.com for more information about Livestreaming.

A Livestream Performance is a traditional performance that is livestreamed to the Internet as the actors are performing. Instead of watching the show live in the theatre, the audience watches virtually from their home or other location.

All Livestream Performances must be conducted through our Authorized Streaming Partner, BookTix. Please contact BookTix at info@booktix.com for more information about Livestreaming.

A Livestream Performance may be pre-recorded. Recordings for pre-recorded Livestreams may be made if the recording is destroyed at the conclusion of the production. Should the producing organization want to retain the recording for archival purposes, they must purchase a separate Videorecording License from Theatrefolk.

Theatrefolk charges no additional fees for permission to Livestream. However, BookTix will charge nominal fees to the producing organization. Theatrefolk does not have any financial interest in BookTix and does not receive any commission or fees from BookTix.

Theatrefolk cannot be held responsible for any issues, technical, financial, legal, or otherwise, arising from the producing organization’s relationship with BookTix.

Each time the show is Livestreamed (whether performed live or pre-recorded) constitutes one performance.

One license, three ways to use it

Each royalty you purchase can be used as a Traditional Live Stage Performance, Virtual Performance, or Livestream Performance. How you choose to use your performance license is up to you! Performances need not all be of the same type so long as the total number of performances given does not exceed the total number of performances ordered.

What will be her dreadful fate
When the trumpet sounds the call
For those who stand against the state
Must first learn how to fall.

Possible expulsion, expulsion, expulsion.

Agatha is a girl who stands up for her beliefs, regardless of the consequences. As student council president at Thebes High, she vigorously defends a student who is unfairly punished. Based on her actions, she could be expelled and lose an important scholarship.

Set in a modern-day high school, the play translates the original Greek chorus into a fantastic ensemble opportunity.

Customer Comments

We did Agatha Rex this past month for Northshore Networks Youth Theatre. Thank you thank you thank you for such a wonderful script, the kids shone! They did a terrific job with the play. We performed at our premiere Performing Arts Center here in Bothell, WA and it was phenomenal.

I've been doing youth shows since 1990, this is one of the best scripts I’ve ever had the pleasure of producing and you can quote me on that.

I've been recommending your shows and Theatrefolk to many of my fellow teachers.

We're looking at another of your scripts for this next year for a smaller all girl crew, I can't wait to read it!

Eve Hammond, Artistic Director, Northshore Networks Youth Theatre
