This game works with: SheepShaver, Basilisk II,

This is a computer game created by MECC in 1995. It is essentially a stage play simulation game in which you can make plays. Very similar to The American Girls Premiere which was created by the Learning Company in ca. 1998 and functions about the same way.

Create, direct and perform your very own plays!

Opening Night brings your imagination to life with more than 40 photo-realistic costumed characters, 110 different sets, hundreds of props and sound effects, and musical selections. Join your audience and watch your play on-screen or print it out and perform it live!

The 2nd Download contains a disc image of the bonus CD, called Behind the Scenes, that accompanied the game CD.

Both disc images are hybrids for Mac and PC.

Best movie-making game of the 90s by a country mile... and yes, I've played 3D Movie Maker.

I'll be uploading some highly stupid Opening Night plays on my YouTube channel available here:

Thanks for posting this game! I used to play it year ago and I'd love to get it back. Unfortunately, I'm having trouble installing it. I downloaded the iso and mounted it in SheepShaver, but when I go through the install process I keep ending up with the message "Sorry but a disc error (-44) has occurred". I'd appreciate any advice on how to get around this. Thanks in advance!

Thank you for your response. It's quite an obscure game like most of the games on here. If you really want to see other people's plays, it would require for that person to make a video of the play but either doing a camrip (poor quality), or using software like Camstudio (which is free) and a built-in stereo mix or audio playback to record the audio from the game you're playing.

Cute software. I don't suppose anyone knows anywhere you can download other people's plays from.
