What is a Producer? Do you need one? Is it You?

This workshop will provide a broad overview of the steps needed to get your show off the ground, from planning through performance. We'll use real-life examples of the day-to-day business of production to explore multiple producing models to get your work up and running at any level. Evaluating long and short-terms goals, we'll step through the production process, including expense budgeting, an intro to basic fundraising and income streams, contracting and negotiation, the practical skills of managing creative, technical and production teams, box office, marketing and PR and generally setting yourself up for success.
