You may live stream performances of "Once Upon a Mattress"


The Ray-Pec High School spring musical "Once Upon a Mattress" opens this week! Due to the pandemic, in-person seating in the theatre is extremely limited, and reservations are being prioritized for parents of the cast and crew members.

However, the school has negotiated the rights to live stream the show! With the help of the media students and the RP technology department, the show will be available to view at 7:30 p.m. April 29, April 30, May 7 and May 8.

Note: There are two different casts for the show, with the "Pec" cast performing on April 29 and May 7, and the "Ray" cast performing on April 30 and May 8. Below are instructions on how to purchase a live stream pass.

In order to meet the requirements of the licensing agreement, a company called BookTix will provide this service. Essentially, Ray-Pec media students will handle the broadcast, and will send the feed to the people at BookTix who handle the ticketing. This ensures the creative artists are able to charge a royalty for each viewing and make certain that we are working within the legal limits of the licensing agreement, and it enables us to make up a little of the lost box office revenue that we use to pay for the show.

Follow this link:

Once there, select the show(s) you would like to see and create an account with Booktix. You will then have the option of purchasing a live streaming ticket. Live streaming tickets are $10. There is also a surcharge from BookTix. You will need one ticket per viewing device. Once you buy the ticket, BookTix will send you an email that has a link for the ticket and a code that you use to access the show. A few important things:

You need to watch the show WHILE IT IS HAPPENING. It will be streamed live from the high school. It is not recorded for you to watch at your leisure. The streamed performances happen in real time.

Do not share your link/code with anyone else. BookTix has said that if more than one device tries to connect to the live stream with the same link and code, then all using that information will be removed from the system.

Only the evening performances will be streamed live:

  • Thursday, April 29 @ 7:30 pm the “Pec” cast performs.
  • Friday, April 30 @ 7:30 pm the “Ray” cast performs.
  • Friday, May 7 @ 7:30 pm the “Pec” cast performs
  • Saturday, May 8 @ 7:30 pm the “Ray” cast performs

Thank you for being willing to try this new way to enjoy theatre! This is a new experience for all of us. It is our intent to make the hard work of these students available to as many of their extended friends and family as possible.

If you have any questions, please contact Janet Thomason at (816) 529-3462 or by email at She is a theatre booster and has agreed to help answer questions regarding purchasing tickets.
