New: Streaming HD video of top theater performances

Thanks to generous funding by the UWL College of Liberal Studies, the campus now has access to Digital Theatre Plus, a streaming video service that focuses on live theatrical performances. Digital Theatre Plus can be watched from a computer, phone, tablet, or other device and is available both on and off campus.

Digital Theatre Plus includes high-definition video and audio performances of hundreds of plays, ballets, musicals, and operas from premier theaters such as the Globe, the Royal Opera House, the Royal Shakespeare Company, and the Old and Young Vic.

In addition to performances, Digital Theatre Plus includes filmed interviews with playwrights, directors, designers, musicians and actors, offering insights into every aspect of the theatre production enterprise.

From Shakespeare to Sam Shepard, the award-winning performances can be used for personal entertainment and enlightenment as well as in the classroom, enhanced with theory and criticism from many of the industry’s top practitioners.

Digital Theatre Plus is available in the library’s A-Z list of databases as well as relevant Subject Guides.
